shout out to the Bookwyrme

Very quick little update: a past musical endeavor, one I'm very fond of, is the work I did for The Broken Hourglass over at It is an unreleased Baldur's Gate style RPG, for which I composed the score (not chiptune, but "real" orchestra, in this case*).

It was my first real work in the video game field and it was quite thrilling. I'd love to see the game get done, but TBH is a labor of love and those kind of things take a lot of time, for various reasons. One way or the other, I'd love for you all to hear the music, but my first preference would be for you to hear it.. in a game!

So anyway, while dropping by to check in on the folks both at planewalker and at, I happened upon Bookwyrme's site, who has mentioned me before. She had some kind words to say recently, here:

*Synthesized, but as real sounding as my rig could produce. I was fortunate to have purchased some ethnic music samples which came in super handy as well.

Let's blow some dust off around here! Whew!

So first things first: yeah, I said over and over again that I'd be doing something new. Well, it has now been over a year since PtP was released, so obviously.... I lied. Blah.

But, my promises were always made on certain assumptions... assumptions that were dashed! Actually, being majorly cryptic here, some of those assumptions being broken were actually good things! Like, perhaps, a less crushing need to make every possible cent that I can!*

Actually, I'm very much interested in working music back in to life again, but I'm just not 100% certain how yet. One of the things I learned when I put out PtP is that you have to be very careful about what you do as side work, which is what this has always been for me.

Anyway, back to the point: The fine people over at Gamewave promised me a podcast slot, and they did deliver! Here's the link to them:

I still get the very occasional sale trickling in, so still by all means spread the word. And I'm probably going to keep this blog around... I need some kind of "front" for my musical activities, after all. Who the heck knows what I'm going to do in the future, though!

*No, I didn't win the lottery or get rich or anything crazy. Let's just say I've just taken a few good steps away from the ledge!
