Last August listened to a great conversation between Sims designer Will Wright and composer Brian Eno, after which Eno announced he’d be creating a generative music soundtrack for Wright’s new game Spore. Six month later, apparently, the online gaming community is reporting the coupling as news. Hooked on Spore quotes Birdhouse as the source – which is weird since I have, like, zero involvement with the gaming world. And all I did was listen to a publically available podcast that anyone from the gaming community could have listened to themselves. Anyway, still very excited to wander through the game (assuming there’s a Mac version – and time).
