Soundplay: The Intersection of Music, Gaming and Technology — from mylifescoop.com by Jason Johnson

Excerpt:

Soundplay is an exploration of the new gaming landscape, where independent game developers are today having the same transformative impact indie musicians have had on music over the past decade. We asked five innovative young game developers to create original games that didn’t simply use music as a soundtrack but that were original works inspired by specific songs. Today we feature another one of those five. It’s a remarkable time in the gaming world, where thanks to Intel’s advances in processing technology indie developers can create fully formed games without the assistance of major publishers.

Chemistry project goes viral -- great work Eli Cirino!

 

From DSC:
Great work Eli Cirino!

It is my hope that we could create more teaching materials like this — i.e. content that uses digital storytelling to create a more last impression…to elicit emotions…to move a piece of information through the gate (i.e. someone’s attention) and then through someone’s working memory and into their long term memory! Great, creative, innovative thinking Eli!

.

.

Excerpt:

Performed by Kimiko Ishizaka on a Bösendorfer 290 Imperial in Berlin’s Teldex Studio, there’s already plenty to love about a new cut of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. But this one is also the first fan-funded, open source, and completely free recording of it.

“Every part of it is free for you to use, share, and copy,” said Robert Douglass, who launched the successful Kickstarter project behind Werner Schweer’s new version of the classic score and its production.

When someone introduces a powerful technology, I’m always amazed at the innovative directions that it goes in.  Years ago, when I was taking an introductory course re: multimedia applications at San Francisco State University’s Multimedia Studies Program, I was fascinated by the wide variety of ways in which the students solved the same assignment.  Such creative thinking was engaging, fun. Glory to God for our creative minds!
