A First-Timer’s Guide to the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle (PAX West)

Hello, readers! My name is Jeremy Lim and I write music for video games. Each September, over a hundred thousand gamers take over Seattle to celebrate the Penny Arcade Expo - fondly known as PAX West (and formerly known as PAX Prime). From table top classics to tomorrow's virtual worlds, PAX is a celebration of all things gaming. With countless activities, shows, and games to play, it's easy to get overwhelmed. That said, there...

Lost and Longing [Original]

A year ago, life went sour, and I lost much of my digital life. Photos, documents, music, memories - all of it evaporated overnight - including my Japan-inspired EP, Mizu.

We all rooted in electro swing, but quickly branched out to play on the many different environments of Obliteracers. Care to give it a whirl? The game's available now on...

“MashUp” for the Vancouver Art Gallery [Commercial]

For some reason, most of my projects have been outside of Vancouver. It's been wonderful working with teams far and wide, but it's nice to play on my own turf too. Thanks to the talented Philip Jarmain, I got my chance, and I was brought on to score the ad for the Vancouver Art Gallery's latest exhibition, MashUp: The Birth of Modern Culture. Well done to him and the crews over at 123w...
