How Videogames Changed The World - additional music composition
I recently composed additional tracks for the Channel 4 Charlie Brooker documentary “How Videogames Changed The World”.
The tracks were born from a compositional exercise I use frequently where I create fictional videogame theme music, based on a few keywords. For this type of work, I tend to use AudioTool, a free online browser-based app, as it offers a fast, intuitive way of sketching compositional ideas, and I don’t need to be at my desk to use it. I strongly recommend you try it out.

Go into your tablet settings and edit the tip feel. Make it firm.
Then, hit Customize…
Here we go, set a slight sensitivity curve like in the pic above. Next, most importantly, raise the click threshold by dragging that bottom arrow. Keep testing your line quality in the panel on the right.
If you’re heavy-handed like me, this should do wonders for your line work. Here’s my before and after;
Muuuuch more gradation. Happy man.
I hope this brings you equal joy :D
