I’ve uploaded a new song to the collection of background music for games and apps (the Henry’s Engine project). The idea is to collect at least 8 different types of songs on an album that can be used for any type of background music, such as a mobile game or a website.
It’s going to take a little while preparing all the songs, but I figured I might as well start putting the songs out there as I go. If you like any of them you can get them from the bandcamp page below.

I’ve mentioned before that I sometimes make background music for mobile apps and games and I’ve just completed the first version of a song for a children’s game. Since this music will most often be heard over the internal speakers on an iPad / iPhone, this time I set it up so that while working on the track I could easily listen to it via my iPad. This meant I could check the result of the mix and mastering and optimize levels for the right conditions.
I was going back and forth with some more electronic vibes but then decided to build a more traditional, acoustic sounding track that I think will work well in an app for 3-8 year olds.
Linn says she likes it so I guess it passes QA :). Keep in mind that it’s meant to loop so the cutoff is pretty sudden.
