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.

Im just adding the final part to the manor map, its a pretty epic workload, so I couldnt make it to this week´s deadline myself, but I was just wondering how you are doing? Havent heard of you in a while.

My realistic estimate is that I´d try the new build´s release around the next week, so I can perfect the ending half of manor... IF I get that far. =P

Sorry you haven't heard form me lately, I've been offline slightly more than i realized. I am very very excited about the manor map!!! I know you are working very hard. I have had a lot of just...coding to do lately and it been eating up a lot of time. I am still focused, though.

Yeah ok, glad to see you´re back online. I started to wonder where you went for a week or so, but I counted it either as a vacation or just plain busy.

Anyways, no need to rush the Flesh stuff even if Im asking around, Im just excited to hear more. Just do your thing in peace. =)

Hey, you contacted me on my profile about the music gig? Im definately interested in your tracks, and I´ll e-mail you in a day or two over to your gmail account, is that alright? Then we can talk thru what we both want, and what we can do, ´n all that. There´s plenty of stuff I want to talk about, I just dont have the time right this minute.. Thought I´d atleast give a quick answer to your post.

Eh, just leave a message to my profile if the email account of yours is still valid. I´ll write something there then.

Thanks!
