One Night in Reed's Crossing (2016)
Waves All Day
Composed and recorded music and Sound Effects for submission to the Juegos Rancheros "Mystic Western" Game Jam. Music was written in 5 hours. All audio assets were created and edited in one 15 hour day, and the complete game was created in only four days.
Musical assets were created so they would loop perfectly. I was asked to use obscure 90's indie band 'Bill Ding' as an inspiration. The theme was "Mystic Western" so i opted for a tremelo and reverb heavy bass guitar as my main instrument.
All sound effects, character vocalizations and foley were created within a two hour period.
