The second week of Indie Love Month commenced this week. We turned the beat back with Bit.Trip Core. We made beats with Soundshapes. We bounced a ball around with Shatter. Dodged a plethora of missiles with N+. And finally we changed back and forth with Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.
If you want to see the music as it goes up (and not wait every Saturday for these wrap-ups), remember to go to our Tumblr page and follow it. Music for Night-Time Listenings goes up every weekday at 10PM.
Last night Jeremiah “Module” Ross performed at the San Francisco Bath House in New Zealand. He was doing the music from Shatter, which was rife with Electronica goodness. Since the concert was in New Zealand, the time difference was pretty immense, and most of use were either sleeping or at work. But Module was nice enough to archive his performance on YouTube for the public that missed it. The actual performance begins around the 1 hour mark. Before that is the opening act. So have a listen and enjoy. And remember that Shatter is available on PSN, Steam (I believe), and is part of the current Humble Indie Bundle.
Shatter composer Jeremiah Ross, aka Module, is going to do a live performance of the Shatter soundtrack in the San Francisco Bath House in New Zealand. This is NOT in San Francisco, repeat, NOT in San Francisco. This is in a club called San Francisco Bath House. Okay, now that that’s out of the way, he’s informed people on his Facebook page that if enough people are interested, he’ll livestream Shatter Live on Ustream for those that can’t make it to NZ. All you gotta do is go here and like/tell him you’re interested. The performance begins at 9PM NZ time on September 20th. He’ll be accompanied by Benny Tones (which he collaborated with before) and Jen Kyle.
You don’t know about Shatter music? Well getacquainted! It’sawesome! And buy the game on PSN or Steam while you’re at it!
I remember first hearing the music from the Shatter soundtrack from YouTuber SupraDarky. Immediately, the music had me wondering what kind of game this was. Seeing only blocks stacked on top of each other on the cover of the soundtrack (the image that SupraDarky had on the video), it all looked abstract to me. A search on YouTube for Shatter, and it turned out to be an Arkanoid clone. However, I stopped short of calling it that as it seems to have surpassed even Arkanoid. I knew right then and there that I wanted to get the game. Before I got the game, I listened to some more of the music from the game. I ended up listening to the whole soundtrack before playing the game, but that’s alright. It still didn’t deter my enjoyment of the game or the music. So then, here’s three entries from the game we’ll be listening to today.
