Get some music
I Dream of 2019 (2011) is an ambient-electronic symphony that tells the story of a despondent man's final hours as he faces up to his own inadequacies when he sees himself stranded in a futuristic dystopia eight years from the present.
Radius (2008) is an 8-track concept album based around a five-note theme.
Do Not Listen (2007) is a 19-track experimental compilation, featuring (among other nuggets) the song that inspired Boomshine and the full-length soundtrack to Stick Avalanche 2. It reached #42 in the iTunes New Age album charts in 2007.
All albums are available on iTunes and all other reputable digital music retailers.

Excremental Intermission (Boomshine Mix) (2:08)
The title track from the new k2xl game Boomshine, a tribal remix of Excremental Intermission from the debut album.
This took several iterations and borrows a percussive leaf out of the
book of Spawn (a different game that fell by the wayside), the music for
which you can probably dig out from the archive if you're interested.
If you liked this, you'll probably like most of the other songs on the
CD. Here's the sheet music: (BMP or PDF) if you and a friend fancy playing it on the piano.
Quietly epic cinematic ballad. Cellos sound a bit like Lost. (For which read: "don't tell me what I can and can't do.")
Excremental Intermission (Tribal Mix) (2:55)
One of you, perhaps just one of you, perhaps, just perhaps, just,
will surely appreciate this... Oh dear! I didn't finish it. Never mind.
The main theme from our soothing new Flash game Obechi.
A Handful of Atoms (3:58)
It sounds a bit like a scene from the first series of Look Around
You. Going by the piano tune, I think this might have been a teaser
track for Radius I started a long time ago but never got round to finishing. I've only just stumbled across it. There you go.
From the proposed Sociopath soundtrack.
From the proposed Sociopath soundtrack.
Mental Workout (2:48)
A scratched track from the Sociopath soundtrack.
Oh, how fun, it's like the 1990s never happened.
Ode to Rivered Quads (3:26)
Ash lost twenty bob with three of a kind aces against four 4s on
the river. This miserable tune was written to mark the occasion.
More soppy piano music.
Super J (0:32)
Light entertainment (oh alright, "game show") working theme tune.
Recently updated as part of a rebranding exercise of some sort.
Baila Mi Ritmo (John Locke Mix) (5:19)
Everyone loves Lost's favourite baldie bonce John Locke
when he gets a bit pissed at the world, so we've set him bawling his
head off to a note-for-note house rearrangement of a disco track by
Latino funk band Irakere in the hope that it will make him look really
silly. FOR A CHANGE. "Don't ever tell me what I can't do, ever!"
Company demonstration video. The usual piano/percussion hybrid with a little hearty singing for added pompous enthusiasm.
The Fruitless Electrocution of Frederik Angstrom (3:08)
More noisy synth-pop, but partially (that's only partially, mind)
more inspired. The number of snares in the four-measure section kit
fills starts at five and increments each section. And, erm, that's about
it. Still, though.
An Interlude (0:40)
An interlude. Actually, this is more of a loop than an interlude. *jumps to 12th on Trading Standards hitlist*
For b3ta: one xylophone sample with ten reverse boxes working in tandem.
Sore Tooth (4:05)
Noisy synth pop, in which I (that's me) play with distorts and filters and things. And it is interesting.
The Exchange: Intro (1:53)
First started this crunchy beast sometime in the early summer of
'05, when a fellow fan of the UK version of The Apprentice challenged me
to imitate the industrial mayhem of the holy one-and-only Dru Masters.
The resulting over-compressed craziness became the working theme for an
alternative psychology format of mine which never really got off the
ground (The Exchange), before being shifted onto the award-winning
Internet puzzlefest Psychopath. The sudden contrasting section in the
middle is supposed to sync to something. What exactly? Who knows! Let
your ears decide.
The Exchange: Choice (1:51)
This was originally a spin-off to the original Exchange theme, based on the contrasting section in the centre.
Spawn (Loop) (1:27)
Leftovers from a discontinued K2XL game. Some weighty ethnic chord clashes, there.
Film Noir (0:59)
The animated short this went behind didn't win a laptop, and it bloody well should have done.
Phosphoric Acid (Incomplete) (1:29)
Name drawn from the back of a can of Cherry Coca Cola. This quirky
guitar/panpipe/drum combo is dedicated to the memory of my teeth.
