It’s FS Weekend! This month, our IFS Media is an audio track and cover photo created by Jaicat from Sendai, Japan. You can listen to Jaicat’s tune by redeeming your FS event’s Passcode and opening the media or by clicking on the image below.
How long have you been playing?
I have played Ingress since December 2014
What inspired you to submit your piece to the contest?
I hope to explain my mind as Ingress Glyphs.
I often listen the music like Lo-Fi Hip Hop in Covid19 era, so I want to make the music including that flavor.
Is there anything about your media you want people to know?
My media is the music based on Ingress Glyphs, which I call Glyph Music. It’s my life work as Ingress Agent.
Explaining the piece’s title, Lo-Fi is not low fidelity but faithful, chilled out and just peaceful.
Is there a website where people can see your media?
I will update it to my SoundCloud: soundcloud.com/user-516270392
also the details to my Glyph Music site: www.astrolabel.net/GlyphMusic
sound file is downloadable.
Are there any details you would like to share about your craft? (example, do you use a specific editing program, how do you come up with ideas?)
I usually study and compose the experimental musics i.e. electroacoustic music, concrete music, acousmatic music and algorithmic music .
My Glyph Music is a kind of algorithmic music.
They are shaped by glyph shapes.
Do you plan to make swag from the thumbnail image?
Now I have no plan, however I make the movie. I may update it until Virtual IFS.
Is it ok if agents use the thumbnail image in their Virtual IFS Group photos?
It’s okay, feel free to use image and sound.
Thank you Jaicat for submitting your work to share with agents around the world! If you would like to see your Ingress themed artwork in the scanner, we’ll be opening up the Artwork Submission form later this week so keep an eye out!
