Evan Gipson joins Carpark, releases “The Music of Morphite”

October 11, 2017 10:29 am

Today, Carpark Records is proud to release Evan Gipson’s, The Music of Morphite, the soundtrack for Marumari‘s latest video game, Morphite.

Morphite is an atmospheric Sci-Fi adventure in a stylized universe. The video game (iOS, Xbox 1, PC Steam, PS4) was written and created by Josh Presseisen (of Marumari fame) and players can journey to distant planets in hopes of discovering new animals and plants, while finding the secrets of Myrah Kale’s past. Presseisen enlisted Evan Gipson to compose the soundtrack for the game. Gipson has been composing music for Presseisen’s Crescent Moon Games, which include titles such as Mines of Mars, Hammer Bomb, and Sparkwave. This time Gipson brings us a massive and epic soundtrack, filled with desolate tones and energized synthesizers, the perfect fit for space exploration. The soundtrack release for Morphite includes over 50 tracks by Gipson and a special guest appearance by Marumari on remix duties after a long absence from the music scene.

“When I’m Lonely” music video

October 10, 2017 11:09 am

Introverted Dancefloor is back with a brand new song, “When I’m Lonely,” paired with a new music video.

Bevan Smith (Introverted Dancefloor) on the video:
“For this video, Rowan Pierce (the director) and I wanted to use dance to represent a person being overwhelmed by loneliness and crushed by the weight of the world. Something light and breezy. We wanted it capture the attention of the viewer, but also be very minimal, voyeuristic and creepy.

In essence, it is a study of a dancer’s body in motion. We worked with Kosta Bogoievski to develop the concept. We started from a place of stillness and built up to repetitive movements to represent Kosta being compressed by immense weight. When filming, Rowan focused on the details of his body in motion to show muscles and skin through a plain and objective lens.”

“When I’m Lonely” is available now on the Carpark shop, iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify!
