(Entrance to The Church of St Guillotine, Patron Saint of The Headless, Provins, France) It’s been humid and very hot in these parts this week. In my studio, I’ve been boiling alive. Even so, I’ve not been out much. Just working. Whatever, yesterday my dear mother calls out saying she needs to borrow my car … Continue reading ZOOLON & THE SPIDERS
(me having a laugh with my GoPro) I’ve been mucking about with new lyrics/melodies lately. Some are working; some I let fly away back where they came from. For random reasons I’ll probably never figure out, history has been on my mind – perhaps the flavour of French history from last week has stayed with … Continue reading A POSTCARD FROM BEFORE

Jennifer has kindly used the music from one of my Zoolon Audio sample packs for her new game. Basically, the sample packs are designed for musician’s to manipulate in order create new music. Being clever, Jennifer has used this piece as a backdrop to the game. I’d like to wish her every success as her gaming project evolves.
Block breaker is my next completed game project to help me learn C#. It’s pretty simple, but it’s got 3 levels, 4 kinds of bricks, and my own artwork, plus music by Zoolon Audio! Wow! Thank you George for letting me use your awesome music and samples for this project.
