Music for phsychological thriller short film "The Oracle"


You can hear my music in the 9-minute phychological thriller, "The Oracle" from Boiler Room Pictures Ltd., directed by A. Onomen Asikele and shown at the Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner, 2005.

I have yet to see the finished film myself, so if anybody involved reads this, please get in touch with me so that I can get to see the film?! Thank you! :-) - Bjorn.

[Update Aug. 29, 2005: I have now received an email from the director, who says he's going to send me a copy. - Bjorn]

Back to good old "tracker" format for Nintendo DS music

Right now I'm working on the music for a video game that will come out later this year on Sony PSP and Nintendo DS. I don't think I'm allowed to say just yet, which game it is, but it's going to be cool. :-)

I'm making the same music tracks for the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS platform, but I have to do the work twice over, because I have to create the music in two completely different formats. The Sony PSP can "stream" the music from disc, and that means that I can record the music using normal instruments and all my studio equipment etc. But the Nintendo DS doesn't have anything to stream from, so I have to create the music in good old "tracker" format (in this particular case, ImpulseTracker format or FastTracker format).

I'm using a program called MadTracker, which allows the composer to "program" the music using a complex grid of letters and numbers. It's how it all started for me, on the Amiga computer back in 1988, I used this kind of system to make my very first fumbling musical steps. And here I am, 17 years later, back to using a music tracker for the music on the latest Nintendo handheld. Who would have thought it?! :-)
