Here’s an update from Chris Christodoulou, the amazingly talented composer of The Sea Will Claim Everything and now Ithaka of the Clouds: Hi, I don’t believe we have met before. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Chris and I’m your travel age— sorry, I mean I’m the composer of Ithaka of the Clouds. Some of [...]
Εγώ που κάνω όνειρα κι έχω πολλά ωραία να χάσω κάνω και την αρχή — δε γουστάρω να ησυχάσω. Τι άλλο φοβάσαι, πες μου, και θα γίνω κι ας έχω τόσα πολλά κι ωραία να χάσω. Κι ούτε στιγμή μη ρωτάς τι θα απογίνω, μου φτάνει που δε γουστάρω να ησυχάσω I wish this song’s [...]
I don’t worship magical trees myself, but this song is so very beautiful, it’s always worth posting again. So is my other favourite Christmas song: Merry Magic Tree Day, humans!
I was drawn to this song because of the Blakean title and because I adore Natalie Merchant’s cover of Which Side Are You On. Turns out it’s quite spellbinding.

And now for something less depressing and irritating than racism – a beautiful, inspiring song by Roger Waters. I don’t know if the tide is turning yet, but I hope it will.
There’s another lovely review of The Sea Will Claim Everything over at Mash Those Buttons. I was particularly happy about this part: Once the music hits you, I’m not sure how much you’ll care about the game’s setbacks any more. The music is the core of this game, the piece that holds everything together. Chris [...]
The week since the release of the bundle has been full of disasters of various proportions – the cat has a bladder stone, I had a blocked salivary gland, Verena got hit by a car – but we’re all still here, and doing our best to keep being here. I’ll have proper updates for you [...]
Today was my birthday, but I spent most of it (about 12 hours) working on The Sea Will Claim Everything. Tomorrow I put in some final details, and it’s done. But to be honest at this point I am just exhausted, so here’s a beautiful and soothing song from a CD that was one of [...]
