Good day, friends. As some of you may know, I have officially begun work on the official sequel to my 2006 American Album. The album tite: AMERICAN PIXELS.

Once again, I am creating a tribute solely to American game composers, although this time I'm getting it professionally done: properly mastered, live instruments, legal licensing, and... I'm getting a CD made. Yep, selling this puppy, getting it on iTunes, all that jazz. After releasing over 100 free remixes (50+ on OCR), I hope you won't begrudge me an album that I'd like to profit a little bit from. :)

This time around I'm also honoring a great many American composers and games who didn't make the cut the first time; just a few examples include:

Jake Kaufman - Shantae
Garry Schyman - Bioshock, Dante's Inferno (per his request)
Clint Bajakian - Outlaws
Chris Tilton and Michael Giacchino - Black
Jared Emerson-Johnson - Sam and Max
Gerard K. Marino - DC Universe (per his request)
Cris Velasco - Clive Barker's Jericho

... and more. I've also received requests for Christopher Tin's "Baba Yetu" from Civilization, Danny Baranowsky's Super Meat Boy, and others... (yes, there's a request form on the front page of the website). It's shaping up to be pretty awesome.

So, stay tuned; I'm currently taking pre-orders on http://www.americanpixels.com (the more I get, the faster I can finish this... hint hint), I'm plugging away at the music over the next several months, and I'll do my best to keep everyone informed. I also invite you to join the newsletter on the site so you can be the first to see the making-of videos and all that goodness.

And, if you pre-order now, you can enjoy a 4-track bonus EP (not available anywhere else) of American chiptune remixes by yours truly!

Ok, enough talking from me. Back to the music. Got an 11th Hour remix calling my name here. :)

Excellent news. Will probably, finances permitting, get the preorder later.
