Game music and sound effects
Client: Tales 4 Tomorrow
Agency: Heavenspot, inc.
Role: Music composition, Sound design
Moxie was asked to create the music and sound effects for an online children's game. This flash-based side-scrolling style game featured a polar bear that was trying to avoid being swept out to sea (due to the melting of the polar ice caps) - while trying to eat fish, catch snowballs and stars for energy. Moxie's challenge was to create a friendly soundscape that was appropriate to the game as well as entertaining. He was inspired by Tuvan throat-singing of the Siberian tundras, which led him to recording his own "version" which ended up sounded amusing - but believable!
