Released in May 2012, Tracer was my first solo album consisting of four instrumental tracks in a blend of chiptune, synth, and progressive metal.
The result is four tracks that capture wonderfully the soundworld of 80s computer music while sounding irresistably fresh. Think Tangerine Dream without the pretensions.
Tree of Knowledge
Winner of OSV Original Soundtrack of the Year 2011: Best “Other” Release
Created in 2011 with fellow musician surasshu and some talented visual artists, Tree of Knowledge is a tribute to the music of Japanese adventure games from the 90s.
A story, character art, and backgrounds were created to support the idea that this is a soundtrack to a lost game.
Tree of Knowledge was later featured in the Indie Game Music Bundle.
This is one of those cases of something being so authentic that you would have no reason to doubt it unless told otherwise.
