Totally taken with this new, hour-long mixtape produced by Dyad, Panoramical and Proteus composer David Kanaga in advance of his live-performance of the latter with designer Ed Key (featured here just a short while back) at GameCity7.

It’s a nicely tuned blend of jazz/folk/piano/electronic, with just enough of Kanaga’s own material for Proteus (some of which, says Key, is sampled from the mixtape’s tracks) that it gives the awesome effect of lazing with a disc-man under one of the game’s low-bit trees, with cheap enough headphones that the ambient sound of the in-game world occasionally bleeds through and fades away.

You can stream the whole thing above, or download it via this new post by Key on the Proteus Live event itself, about which he adds, intriguingly, that the god-like manual controls that helped sculpt the hour-long experience will likely come to the final released version of the game, creating a multiplayer experience where “one person could play on mouse or joypad, whilst someone else controlled the environment via the keyboard.”
