Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
I haven’t played the game, but after I saw the original trailer for Hohokum at E3 years ago, I knew the soundtrack would be special. I was right; the Hohokum soundtrack is full of amazing electronic tunes. Some of my favorites are L, Lux (rpf Rebuild), and Air Parsing.
Hyper Light Drifter Soundtrack
I had high hopes for the Hyper Light Drifter soundtrack. Disasterpeace is a fantastic composer and artist, and his Fez soundtrack is stellar. But nothing about the Hyper Light Drifter soundtrack really grabbed me. Maybe I need to give it one more listen, but as a standalone collection of music, the album didn’t hold my attention. However, I’m sure it’s amazing paired with the game (which I have yet to play).
