Last year I made a concept album called 'Sea Stories' for the RPM challenge. I loved the process and wanted to do it again this year, but since I've released Freak Machine just this month, I don't want to release another album so soon. Instead, I'm making a virtual world that generates music as you explore the landscape. It's like a video game, but there are no objectives and the main attraction is the audio.
My goal is to send out a beta version by the end of the month and release the completed experience in March. To me the RPM challenge is about decimating procrastination and living up to a higher standard of productivity as an artist. So even though this project is not an album, it still forces me to learn a lot and make this virtual reality a reality!
Email me at BenLevinMusic@Gmail.com if you'd like me to send you the Beta version when it's ready.
Here are some screenshots of the music map so far:
