Light-hearted, innocent, and playful. Imagination flows as ordinary rocks are brought to life. Create, nurture, battle, and date your personalized rocks as you re-live the joys and freedom of childhood.
My Pet Rock was a student project headed by adjunct faculty and Pure Bang Games founder, Ben Walsh. Ben saw that I was a new composer looking to kick-start my career and thought my music would be a good fit for the world he had in mind. Ben did not have a specific musical reference as he wanted a unique sound to help bring out the quirkiness of the game. We settled on a mood brought to life by pizzicato strings and xylophone, backed by percussion performed with ordinary rock hits, and the occasional vibraphone. It seemed to set the mood perfectly. We needed nothing haughty, no feeling of grandeur. We needed innocence, simplicity, and maybe even a touch of naivete.
I worked on the soundtrack after getting home from my day job and spending time with my lovely wife and soon-to-be-born daughter. This was only one of a couple of ongoing projects at the time. To my delight, unlike the other projects, this one succeeded in finding completion. It can be played currently on Facebook: play.mypetrock.com
I sincerely hope you enjoy the music, and, as you do, remember your childhood's innocence and imagination.
All sales go directly to me, and I greatly appreciate your support.
