The Fringe Planet Main Theme

Fringe Planet Logo

I am honoured to be asked to make the music for the awesome upcoming crossover survival / god game Fringe Planet. The game is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s work, Rim World, Dwarven Fortress, and Factorio and to come out on Steam on July 31st 2020.

The theme is partially inspired by the works of john Williams (in particularly some of the more obscure Indiana Jones and Harry Potter tracks) and by Tim Burton’s Nightmare before Christmas

The main theme for Fringe Planet features: Tremelo Strings, Marimba, Vibraphone, Pizzicato Basses, Woodblock tick tocks, Soprano Singing, Glockenspiel, Harpsichord, Gongs, Strings, Church Choirs, Tambourine, Flutes, Piccolo, Church Organ, Timpani, French Horns, Chimes, Soprano Choir, Anvils, Snare Drums, Voiceover whispers of in-game Latin spells.

Chasing Pumpkins, now on iOS

Chasing Pumpkins

I had the opportunity to compose and create the music for Chasing Pumpkins, a new Halloween title for iOS (puzzle and action as you move around blocks to avoid pumpkins, and squash them).

This track is a compilation of the Victory music, In-game music and Main Menu music for the game Pumpkin Madness:

The music features heavy influences from Tim Burton Movies and John Williams movie scores, and even a whiff of Hitchcock using instruments such as:

Pizzicato and Tremelo strings
Various Brass instruments
And much more :)

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’.

Listen to the track, here:
