Wow! That’s one Bandcamp newsletter email I’m happy I didn’t unsubscribe from.
Fastfall is one of the first soundtracks I ever listened to independently of its game. I had it on repeat until years after its release. The same counts for Immerse that came two years later, I didn’t even bother playing the related game but just listened to the music. Both are among my all-time favorite electronic music albums!
I looked up Lee (& Hitbox Team) several times over the years hoping for more music, but not much seemed to happen. There was also very little to find about him online, outside of his Bandcamp page & SoundCloud.
Little did I know that Fastfall set off a collaboration & love story behind the scenes. How wonderful! I can’t wait to dive into that new 60-track album tomorrow.
Wow, Thanks Thor for posting this! In a week full of such devastating and heartbreaking news, this was an oasis of pure creative magical love. Reading can be just the medicine one needs to refocus and remember that there is such beauty in life.
I know nothing about video games but I sure know a lot about the creative process and falling in love. This is such a beautiful story, so relatable and genuine. I wish everyone the joy of such a partnership - it’s magic!
