The tech behind electronica, sliding levels & a return to more tweeple
On this weeks playcast, we find out a little bit more about the technology it takes to create those blips and beats that have everyone dancing up a storm in Indian night clubs. Gaurav Malaker from the Electronica band Basic Love of Things (B.L.O.T) talks to Krish Raghav about the different kinds of editing suites and softwares used by artists to create Electronica music, and why the Internet is the preferred medium for its distribution.
We also explore a new “platform game" (a simple game where you run, jump and collect keys to enter doors) with a twist. Continuity – accessible on Continuitygame.com comprises 30 levels, which are also broken into rearrangable tiles which can be moved around.
And finally Sidin Vadukut returns with (what he insists to be) the most incisively researched and thought provoking segment of the Playcast: “beautiful tweeple" – where he recommends three twitter accounts that are fun to follow. This week he features two non human accounts and one human account that are both fun and useful.
