Papa Sangre | Entering the Palace of Bones
*Note* for being a video game with no video, the animation is worth a peep.
looks sounds amazing. As an audio nerd, I’m fascinated with binaural audio- especially audio that affects the theta waves of a brain. If you’re not familiar with this, there is a technique of using binaural beats (that sound like guttural bass) to trick one’s brain into shutting down and go to sleep. It’s great for those quick little naps.
I once had a friend, who in battling cancer, was having a difficult time sleeping. I composed a 45 minute song using binaural beats, rainfall, chanting, prayers, and choirs to help her in her struggle to sleep. I’ll be posting more about this song and make it available for download soon.
Paul Bennun from Somethin’ Else sez, “We just released Papa Sangre, the video game with no video. Backed by Channel 4 in the UK, it’s not the first audio game or first game with binaural audio in it, but it is the first game with an entire world generated on the fly using 3d, binaural sound. Amazing combo of tech and art. Yes, I am biased. But. We are incredibly proud. Response has been incredible, just amazing, especially from blind people (unsurprisingly).”
