I am a composer, sound designer, hardware designer and programmer who is enthusiastic about gaming and game mods. I feel like gaming is the future of multimedia entertainment and the storytelling of today. I am especially interested in generative music and interactive music, that further immerses the user in the virtual world. I have built robots that compose music, data-driven algorithmic music, forward thinking electronica track, full symphonic works, multiple chamber works and have played in and composed for award-winning electro acoustic ensembles.

I don't update my profile here very often, but I recently worked on a small thing that I figured those who listen to my music might like. Its just a very short animated intro and chiptunes track I made for a Usergroup I run in my city.

One of the Developers of Flesh, you must have commented in the thread. I befriended a few people who seemed genuinely interested, as well as people who were working on their own stuff.

Just an act of networking, I suppose. Names Jesse, nicetameeetya.

Name's Dave, and I don't really remember commenting.
Eh, well, as far as you know I'm the random annoying bitch who likes to annoy the crap out of developers by testing beta's.

That is, I just bring certain things to attention on my own way.
Instead of all that 'That's nice and all, but maaaybe, you should fix this or that'

I just go '******' fix it or it'll ruin the release'

Seems to work so far. Frankly, it tends to get fixed even faster.

So I'll just call it Dave's Method.

Actually this method was coined by a certain psychologist...

Buuuut, whatever.

Anywho's, nice to meet ya.
