🎮Manifold Garden

https://manifold.garden

This mind bending puzzle game is a somehow calming trip through infinity. Each level is solved by twisting gravity to manouver blocks as you travel by falling/flying through endlessly repeating versions of the same world. It’s hard to explain, watch the trailer!

🎬Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse

https://www.netflix.com/watch/81002747

Holy moly I enjoyed this animated crazy Spider-Man film a lot! They really went to town experimenting with the animation and visual styles. Even the end credits are a piece of motion graphics art. The sound design is rad and the characters are all great too! My partner Katie usually hates superhero films, but as soon as we finished this one she said “I want to watch that again…” so, there you go!

This compilation album of Venezualan music from 1966 - 1978 is bringing some sunshine to my life at the moment. My lil boy loves dancing to it too! There’s a second compilation out soon if this floats your boat.

📼Georgie Ward: Live at St Georges

https://youtu.be/3YlIJHeLDc0

A live music performance by pianist and synth virtuoso Georgie Ward! Amazing stuff! Georgie was/is the synth player in my new band Bandrucker. We played one gig then I had a baby and the pandemic hit and it all screeched to a halt. I hope to play music with Georgie again when the situation allows, she’s a badass!

🎵Period Works - The Album

https://zrecords.bandcamp.com/album/period-works-the-album

This house/disco album by Crackazat has been the soundtrack to my new favourite activity: dancing my baby boy around the kitchen in a “keep fit” style! He freakin' loves it and I do too, so that’s pretty perfect really.

This short story by Andy Weir about a man who dies and meets his creator is a quickun, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot since reading it!

📼Martin Roberts' Invisible Piano

https://youtu.be/v4iNu1MRb20

A silly vid of a man saying “So what made you want to buy this place?” on a TV show, but with piano sounds added to his splayed hand gesture. Made me chuckle anyway :)

This animation of some weird dudes dancing to awesome recorder music is pretty close to what it’s like inside my brain.
