Gamasutra Interview on Baker Street

Did you miss our live interview on Gamasutra yesterday? They recorded our Twitch session and it is now available to view here! Was really fun, and thank you again Alex and Bryant for having Mike Lee and me on to talk about our upcoming talk at GDC about “The Baker Street Experience”, our interactive audio game for the Amazon Echo released last fall as a result of a successful ‘Jam Week’ team project while I was working at Schell Games.

Legendary’s “Annihilator” for Google Cardboard

And another project I worked on has shipped! I had at the pleasure of working on a super creepy #VR project, adapting Legendary’s comic series “Annihilator” for the Google Cardboard under art direction and experience designer Ben Greene and project director Tim Sweeney. Talk about a super fun audio experience, made everything from creepy breath music (yep, that’s my voice in there), to interactive cafe crowds, haunted footsteps, and a portal to a hell dimension (extra points to Tim Rosko for helping me on that one:) Also kudos to Tom Quitoni for his role as Ray Space. If you don’t have a Google Cardboard, you can also download for PC and MAC! (though I recommend the vr experience for full creep factor) iOS build for Cardboard coming soon, but you can play the Android one today! These are FREE to play, enjoy:)

Singin’ in Russian: Eugene Onegin

Excited to be singing in Russian this season for Undercroft Opera’s production of Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” in Concert, “in concert” meaning this production will not be staged, but performed in a concert style. “Eugene Onegin is a well-known example of lyric opera, to which Tchaikovsky added music of a dramatic nature. The story concerns a selfish hero who lives to regret his blasé rejection of a young woman’s love and his careless incitement of a fatal duel with his best friend.” more on Wikipedia
Join us on Friday, Feb 17th at Bellefield Hall in Pittsburgh! Many thanks to Katie Manukyan for being our Russian pronunciation coach!
Want tickets for cheap? Get them from cast members, like me, for only $15 per ticket.

New Trailer for AR Domino Game

A spiffy new trailer for “Domino World”, an augmented reality game I did sound design for, is on youtube! Had lots of fun on this one, esp the abducted cow and wacky robots. Additional sound design and music by Brandon Guillot #ar #gameaudio
“Wait…what is this game about?” With Domino World, you can put dominos ‘virtually’ on anything in the same room you are in, including furniture, floors… house pets. And then you topple them all down. Fun stuff! Previous post about release of Domino World.
