My name is Will Helliwell. I am a computer nerd by trade and musician at heart. I use music to express myself, to help bring peoples projects to life and to create things that never existed before.
This is an example of adaptive music using Elias. You can see me scroll through the levels to trigger different track variations and create a unique piece on the fly.
Here’s a quick video showcasing a game I did the music on, Ninja Couch Party. It’s a “Nidghogg-meets-Smash Brothers couch party game about fast ninjas and hilarious bloody deaths!” Try out Ninja Couch Party if you’d like to hear some of my music in a fun, local multiplayer, PC game.
This is the music I created for the Home Of Nerds game jam earlier this year. The theme was “death is good”. Mow down mass waves of purples to gain points, loot, and a big bloody mess! Play our entry into a game jam and hear my music throughout. You can read more about my experience doing the jam over on the on the blog post.
You can listen to all my tracks in the playlist below, including some that are a work in progress.
