Hi you guys! So a lot of folks have been asking me whether or not I contributed any music to Plants vs. Zombies 2. To answer your question: Yes, a lot of my compositions from the original PvZ were remixed for the sequel; I also composed the music you hear during the Egypt stage. Originally I gave it a silly pun name, as I did with all the earlier tracks (“Walk like an Egyptian Zombie” heh heh)… Anyways, I hope you enjoy ^_^/

Hi everyone! I’m excited to let you all know that I’ve finally posted a piano version of Ultimate Battle (the Conveyor Belt level) from Plants vs. Zombies! I’ve gotten a ton of requests for this one (more than any other PvZ track), so I really hope you enjoy it ^_^ Since a lot of the requests came from a while back, I’d really appreciate if you could let folks know that it’s online now!

Yes, it was laundry day when I recorded this.

Thank-you!

Plants vs. Zombies Soundtrack Sale for Japan

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that from now until March 27th, the Plants vs. Zombies Soundtrack is on sale for $3.99 at my Bandcamp page, and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the relief efforts in Japan via MercyCorps.

I would really appreciate any help in getting the word out about the soundtrack sale… I’m hoping to raise as much as I can to donate to the cause. Right now there are almost half a million people in Japan who have been left homeless in the frigid weather as a result of the earthquake and tsunami. MercyCorps is working with Peace Winds Japan to deliver balloon shelters to accommodate up to 600 people; large emergency tents; clean water, food and blankets for survivors in Japan.

Thank-you guys so much… take care and stay safe!

Updates and Requests

Hi everyone, I just have a few quick music updates for you today!

First of all, Davixus and Q Flat Major (rad nickname!) realized that a lot of folks were asking for the “Zombies on Your Lawn” sheet music, so they kindly put together an arrangement that’s available for download here. Thanks guys! Also, several people have asked me to update the lyrics section of my website to include “Traces” and “The best it can be,” so I’ve added those in case anyone still wants them ^_^

Last but not least, one of my New Year’s goals is to come up with a good and consistent way to record piano and singing. Sadly, my webcam can’t handle either of these, so the audio is always incredibly distorted. A lot of folks have recommended recording the audio and video separately, which would be great except for the fact that my audio setup (which I use for work) is placed in such a way that it’s nearly impossible to record video (the Korg is right up against a wall and moving it would be difficult since it’s connected rather tightly to the Behringer and computer by a bunch of wires). I was about to rearrange my whole setup when I happened to read that most camcorders (even older ones) actually have pretty good audio (good enough to record piano supposedly)… so now I’m onto plan B: Find my old camcorder, charge it, and put it to the test!

Provided that it works, does anyone have any requests?

Melolune Facesets: Dolby’s Animation Test

Got another one for ya! Here is the brave and enigmatic Dolby of the Mountain Melon Farms:

Melolune Dolby Animation Test

In other news… is anyone going to GDC this year? I’ll be giving a couple talks there. One is a panel on audio in casual games, and the other is a panel given by the Plants vs. Zombies team. I’ve got to work on slides for those this week; I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do for them yet but hopefully I’ll figure something out 😛

I always encourage people to attend to GDC if they’re interested in getting into the video game industry because it’s a great opportunity to learn and meet folks (and some of the talks are really interesting). Satoru Iwata (the president of Nintendo) is going to be the keynote speaker this year. The conference is pretty expensive, but if you apply early enough you can go for free as a volunteer, which I’ve been told is a fun and rewarding experience (you still get to attend a lot of talks and there’s plenty of free time to talk to people and browse the showroom floor).

♫ Plants vs. Zombies Official Soundtrack now online ♫

After almost 2 years, I can finally announce that the official Plants vs. Zombies soundtrack is now online ^_^ If you’d like to help out, please help spread the news! And thank-you so much to everyone who has been supportive of my music… you are all so awesome.

George was kind enough to draw this wonderful cover art… I thought it would be cool if the Sunflower decided to teach music lessons and Digger Zombie joined the class, too (he has a softer side you know, if you couldn’t tell from his penchant for pink tricycles).

Thank-you Pokute for pointing me towards TotalHalibut’s recent video! I had heard from the folks at PopCap that the “singing sunflower” pet would have new art at some point, but I had no idea it had already been implemented until I saw the video this evening… I have to admit, it’s pretty hilarious:

Several years ago George told me I reminded him of Gir from Invader Zim… after watching this video now I know exactly what he’s talking about, haha 😛

Plants vs. Zombies piano versions #8: Rigor Mormist

I was messing around on the piano earlier and decided to record a piano rendition of the music that plays during the pool-night level. Following my tradition of naming all of the PvZ songs using silly plays on words, I came up with the name “Rigor Mormist” because of Rigor Mortis (a term that I learned from the board game Taboo oddly enough) and well… because there’s more mist *cue the groaning noises*… oh! That was a pun too! (Cuz zombies groan?) >_< Sorry I'll stop. Anyways, here it is, hope you enjoy!

p.s. I know you guys really want me to do “Ultimate Battle” and I do plan to… I’m trying to figure out a way to make it sound cool despite the fact that there are more simultaneous parts than I have hands… but rest assured I am definitely planning on doing this one!
