Given the fact that this was a 'thon project and some people here seemed to show quite an interest in it back when it was active I decided to post this here for those interested.



Soundscapes, recorded around '08 for an interactive (video game) project that went by the name "Susannah". An experiment in how far one could go by stripping the elements of a video game down to its bare essentials of mechanics, dynamics and aesthetics, while in the meantime, showcasing the importance and the purpose of audial elements in interactive entertainment.

Set in a bleak sterile world of white, where nothing existed except disturbingly pure visuals, the game followed the avatar's journey through the bleak levels of the world, which the soundtrack accompanied, to migrate and merge to the unknown entity which called for him.

The game only reached a prototype stage where it was showcased at an exhibition in Verksmiðjan, Hjalteyri (Iceland) in 2009. The soundtrack was supposed to be released alongside the game, but given the fact that the project was put on the shelf shortly after the prototype was finished the soundtrack started collecting dust. Until now.

Susannah's Soundtrack is released digitally as "pay what you want". In other words, you choose if you want to download it for free, or support my work financially on future projects.

Great music.
I'm curious, is there any chance of the prototype being released in the future? It's something myself and I imagine others would be very interested in playing, even if the full game was never finished.

I'm not making any promises, but it might happen someday, to at least selected persons.
But don't get your hopes up.

I really like this. I too would like to see more of the prototype.

The music is great. I'm sorry I can't pay for it, since I am quite literally broke at the moment, but I offer my sincere appreciation.
