I just learned that he COMPOSED EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF MUSIC IN THE GAME. As someone who has spent years, YEARS trying to learn to compose music half as good as his, I cannot get over how he was able to simply say "Eh, I'll just make it myself" and blow many modern indie composers out of the water.
It's blown my fucking mind. In the time that it took me to learn to start working out regularly, ConcernedApe managed to master every single aspect of the game development process, and push out a game that is, to this day, one of my favorites.
Sorry for the off-beat post, I just can't get over this game.
edit: thank you for all the replies, this was a nice thing to wake up to.
edit: sorry if I don't get to your channel, there are a lot more of you than I anticipated, I will at least try to watch a video or two. Please go ahead and take a look at the other channels in the comments though (especially the ones that have no replies)!
The forbidding of art and music in a culture is like divorcing us from our humanity and our heart. It is dehumanizing and devastating. It stunts creativity and emotional expression. It represses and such becomes depression. Humans are meant to express emotion. Art and creativity is what made us such beings. It is a crime against our basic nature-one of the first things about Islam that inspired a deep unsettling contempt for the community and the religion.
It’s something I could never accept. Especially as a young girl who never got to dance or sing, stopped playing in band because I was effectively discouraged and harassed by my family about the time I wasted drawing. I’m so glad I didn’t go into the sciences.
As an adult I realize it’s most likely the only thing that poses a threat to critique and place a mirror to Islam’s impact on our human spirit.
I can’t be the only one who feels this way.
Found this great gem for the investors to jump in early!
💡The Project aims to bridge the gap between the crypto world and charity by creating an NFT Charity Marketplace where artists can sell their projects and give a percentage of their sale to charities of their choice. $TATA Nft Launchpad will be a platform exchange that will be built on the premises of promoting $TATA token, the community and their core values. They will be working on getting a partnership with Disney where the NFT marketplace will revolve around the feedback into charity donations, where they will work with Disney, a renowned music & arts market place and also work on to capitalise on the widespread popularity of Disney characters and digital arts to bring a wider audience and traffic into the marketplace. Not only are they planning to donate to charities that deal in water crises, poverty, food shortage, basic healthcare, cancer treatment and research, mental healthcare to mention a few rather, they are enhancing it by donating to disaster struck areas as well! (earthquakes, typhoons, wildfires, bombings, massive drought, etc.)💡

I don't like how people say something bad about art, music and other entertainment. I sometimes find comments in the social media that tell how useless art, fiction, and music are, and I often become devastated everytime I read them. I even once cried about it. Imagine how the world would be if every form of entertainment never existed. All videogames would be just simulations, all photos and videos would be only about documenting something, all books would be non-fiction and everyone would wear the same things and having the same objects. Art, music and storytelling is what made us humans different from other animals and without them all our lifes would be only about survive, working and calculating everything. I feel that these people love living exactly in those type of societies i described.
Edit: I feel that my view is just based on my repeatedly use of strawman fallacy and paranoia. Thanks for changing my mind
Especially Music it just doesn’t make sense. Why should someone go to hell forever and be punished in the grave simply because they made sounds.
Artists don’t even make music anymore, producers do. The lyrics are never anything that makes you think about big shit outside of yourself and have about as much grace with words as a four year old
How old were you at that time? Has your orientation to magic changed since or have you mainly been following/doing the same beliefs/rituals/influences? If you simply had an interest since childhood, can you pinpoint the initial experience that sparked the interest that made you continue to explore it and organize it into a system to follow or find as you matured. It might be hard to recall, but what do you imagine it might have been?
This prompt is partly inspired by bits I remember from more than one of Alan Dean Foster's print novels. I consider Foster to be the most significant user of the space orcs trope in traditionally-published science fiction.

Art and Music are definitely emotional expressions. So it's illogical to have those elements in a logical spciety
I’m the developer behind Denim. You may remember, earlier this year I launched the app on this sub. Today, I’m incredibly excited to share a major new update that I’ve been working on the last few months.
Denim 2.0 has a never before seen feature called Trial Room that integrates with your Music Library and uses your playlists to automatically create previews of different cover art (as it would look on your playlist) by just simply tapping. Your playlist titles will magically appear onto artworks, with no need to type or edit any more.
You can preview, create and add playlist cover art in about 30 seconds. It’s really that easy with this new update. Hope you you enjoy it!
Greetings, here’s the May Self-Promo Thread! Share your own music here if you’re a musician, inspired by AnCo or not! (Other art is welcome too)
Please give everyone a brief description in your comment to describe the genre/vibe of your music. If you just post a link and nothing else your comment will be deleted.
