One of the funnest things I get to experience from time to time is seeing someone do what they REALLY love doing. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen someone as passionately into his world than Ronald Jenkees. There are so many good performers, so polished and classy. There is so much good music and art, in its perfect time and nicely wrapped for our aesthetic enjoyment. And then there are those moments in music and art, film and theater when you are utterly captivated by what someone is doing. You get a peak into their mind, into their love, into their passion. What a gift. I’ll always come back to people like this to pull down some of that transcendent joy and hopefully bring it into what I’m doing. And if it all goes right, I’ll be one of those people letting others into my world, into my passion, and my experience. Maybe Ronald doesn’t do it for you. I’d love to hear who inspires you!
From time to time, I get to work in gaming platforms. This playlist is a set of cues I put together for an iPad game called “Mr. Pants”.
Working in gaming platforms is a little different than writing for linear drama like a film or tv show. You have to always keep in mind the maneuverability, for lack of a better term, of the music. Is this music the type that you can hear over and over without driving the gamer crazy? Can it be fluidly transitioned to another cue at a moment’s notice? Well, that’s the goal. Hopefully I achieved that in these cues.
