Mendel Bouman Goes Davinci


(Click on the ‘CC’ button for subtitles).

This is my very first video pitch! And also my new campaign against single-mindedness in any field of business. It is a dogma that one person cannot be good at many things and I’ve started my campaign against this dogma to show that there are talented people that can do more than one thing well! Mendel Goes Davinci!

I also made the custom background music that you can listen to seperately here:

      1. Emagica - 42

S.A.M. by WhoMusic and Emagica

S.A.M. is the first collaboration between Saul (WhoMusic) and myself (Mendel), and hence the all inspiring project name: S.A.M.

Coming from to totally different musical backgrounds, we had no idea where this would go, but it quickly developed into a tension filled soundtrack for a dramatic scene with dark synths, bright pads, pushing violins, and more.

WhoMusic laid down the bass line, synths, guitar, and horn.
Emagica laid down the drums, violins, and duduk.

You can listen to the track, here:

Music ‘N’ Games

The Score It! Panel at Music 'n' Games

Yesterday at Music ‘n’ Games in Rotterdam, I had the chance to have a panel of gurus listen to one of my tracks and give me their professional opinion about my work. Scary and healthy, the result was interesting. After listeining to ‘Crawl For Your Life’ I received the following feedback from Joris de Man (Killzone 1, 2, 3): ‘Your production needs more work. I was charmed by your combination of Marimba and military Snare.’ Senne de Jong (Little Chicken Game Company) surprised me with his comment: ‘The most worthy intro music for a game so far’.
