sound shapes

The clip above was created by Mark Rabo with Jon Mak and Queasy Games.

 SUMMER 2012

Sound Shapes began as a conversation between Jon Mak, creator of Everyday Shooter, and Shaw Ham Liem aka I Am Robot & Proud. Both of them are fluent in music, art and computer science. Fittingly, Sound Shapes is an intuitively programmable videogame-themed instrument and playback device with a focus on a/v style.

Sound Shapes is the work of a collective, the creation process was unusual and the project features a/v contributions by Beck, deadmau5, 6955, Mathew Kumar, Cory Schmitz & many more. The project also presented an opportunity for some of the creators of Sword & Sworcery to explore some new territory.

At 1:47 in the clip above Jon Mak says:

"Some pixels from Superbrothers, who collaborated with Jim Guthrie, for the Superbrothers X Jim Guthrie record."

Meanwhile on the Capy side of things, there's a record in Sound Shapes spearheaded & art directed by Vic Nguyen, one of the creators of Super TIME Force. There's also a record by PixelJam, the creators of 2005's Gamma Bros. Everyone involved had to grapple with the newness of Sound Shapes and strive to create something memorable.

The staff at Superbrothers had this to say:

"On behalf of the staff at Superbrothers HQ: thank you, Sound Shapes team, it was an honor to be involved and we're looking forward to playing this thing through."

Sound Shapes is a videogame for Vita and Playstation 3, available via the Playstation Network. Play it if you want to relax and/or if you're feeling creative.
