Our composer is touring
Yesterday I witnessed Alessandro Coronas, our composer and sound designer for the upcoming Where Is My Heart, play in Stengade with one of his projects, Quasi Dub Development. This band was formed by Berlin-based musician F.S. Blumm, who plays the bass and features Luca Fadda on trumpet and melodica. Alessandro played the drums and carillon. They just release a record called limousine to the guillotine on the danish label rump recordings, which is founded by the electronic musician Jens Berents Christiansen aka Rumpistol.
The Band is still playing in following cities, so check them out if you're somewhere near: 31.08 Posten, Odense, DK; 01.09 Prinz Willy, Kiel, DE; 03.09 Ausland, Berlin, DE.

B.U.T.T.O.N at the MOMA

As always, I'm superlate with this blogpost and it's not even news anymore. But this is so amazing that it deserves some mentioning and a little bit of bragging. Killscreen Magazine hosted an Arcade the 27th of Juli at one of the Poprally events, that take place in the Museum of Modern Art. Unfortunately, none of us could make it to New York, but they showed B.U.T.T.O.N and appearantly it was a big hit. Sparklelabs created 4 giant Buttons which looked amazing and made people tackle each other on a big scale. Also thanks to our friend Matt Parker, who took care of showing the game and took this picture before the event started.
So, can games be art? Well, if the MOMA curators say so then that's cool with me...
