About me

I’m a free-lance sound designer - I make musics and sound FX.
Having a game designer background, I can also challenge your game’s sound design.
I use Reaper, Audacity and ELIAS (Unity plug-in for interactive musics).
If you need some musics / sound FX for your game (or for a video, event…) please feel free to contact me.

Musics

Here are some musics I did for reference.
(Just click a picture to launch the corresponding music)

Le Bayou
Enter the marshy world of the bayou, with its muddy water and strange wildlife. I added SFX to this Banjo-Kazooie inspired music to make it feel livelier.

Sphorest

Sphorest is a game protoype I made on Unity – you can play it here.
Alternatively, here is a video of the game.
The game uses interactive music – also, I made all sound FX from scratch.
Open the spoiler below for more details on music / SFX and walkthrough.

MUSIC

The music is interactive – some instruments will be added as you progress, some others will disappear… you'll be able to hear the following themes, smoothly transitioning:

  • Title screen
  • Research phase (4 parts)
    • No orb found
    • 1 orb found
    • 2 orbs found
    • All orbs found
  • Outside

There are also tracks being added / being louder as you approach specific objects:

  • an additional melody is added when on the right path for one of the puzzles
  • the background noise is being louder as you approach the altar
  • an additional track is added when you are near an orb


SOUNDS

Here is a list of the sounds used in Sphorest:

  • Move sounds: moving the avatar, turning around, colliding with the trees
  • Wind
  • Progressing in a puzzle / Collecting a key
  • Others: Teleporter cinematic, entering or restarting the game


WALKTHROUGH

Sphorest is a puzzle-game in which you have to find how to get out of an infinite forest. In order to do so, you need to resolve 3 puzzles:

  • Some pair of trees are brighter than the others, acting like “arks”. These arks form a path you need to follow to find a first orb.
  • A flute melody can be heard in the game – follow it to find the second orb. Also, the wind blows in the direction you need to follow.
  • Look for a firefly and follow it to find the last orb. If you can't find it, look at the luminescent flowers around, as their unique leaf always point to the firefly.

Once you have the three orbs, a teleporter will appear near the altar. Enter it to go outside of the “Sphorest”. From then, just hold the up arrow key for some seconds to get your avatar away of the planet – the avatar is now free to wander form planet to planet, the game is finished.
