So Phoenix Comic Con is coming up and thusly another BlazBlue tournament- my life needs focus on anything but video games at the moment, but having said that I am going to take first place this year. Last year’s was streamed, and I took 5th. 5th for my first tournament. Eh, that’s cool, I guess. But it’s not 1st.
Anyways, working on the EP, unfucking my life, and possibly another remix all in the near future as well. I guess now is as good a time as any to stop wasting… time.

Had this really cool dream about this instrument built into an arcade cabinet- not the most clever design because all of the patch points were half-hidden on the back-side of the machine, but still pretty cool non-the-less.
It seem to have a really interesting sine tone when unpatched. The front interface had all these buttons laid out in a manner of some scale system, so no matter what buttons you hit it still sounded musical. The joystick was routed as an xy pad, defaulting to modifying the oscillator in some way (my brain wouldn’t let me know) and a pitch bend, but as I was informed in the dream it could be patched to almost anything (including modifying LFOs in some way- perhaps phase?)
The screen itself would merely change in colours and brightness and patterns based on what was happening in the audio output. Pretty cool to watch. Oh and the buttons lit up as you pressed them!!!
Either way, it was like a synthesizer-organ in an arcade cabinet and a delightful design in feedback on my brain’s behalf. Even if no good came of it, it would be genuinely fun to play.
Out today is the single, Blood, off the coming Wilted EP. (Which is finally its name this time, for real!) You can buy and stream it at the link above. Happy listening, friends. If you enjoy, please share!
