Description

Touch and tap to create a noisy beat, then watch it come alive in a stark geometric world. Bleep Space combines the distinct electronic noise-pop of Dan Friel with the abstract procedural visuals of Andy Wallace. Pressing different parts of the screen will spark swirling geometric shapes and saw-wave samples that loop and form a beat, all set in a stylish, monochromatic space. Experimentation is prioritized over perfection. Bleep Space is meant for music lovers of all skill levels. Bleep Space is a finalist at the 2017 IndieCade International Festival of Independent Games.

History

Bleep Space was inspired by Andy’s experience playing with a friend’s Korg sequencer, and the joy he found in creating music while exploring a device that he didn’t fully understand. Meant above all else to be accessible, there is no way to make a mistake in Bleep Space, and any input will be rewarded with another layer added to the beat as the visual field moves from a stark off-white to a flowing, lively assembly of shapes. In addition to the free digital release, Andy worked with the Death By Audio Arcade to create a tabletop installation to house the game featuring light up tactile buttons and a round screen. This device is currently touring different locations in New York and was debuted at the IndieCade festival in L.A. Put on some headphones, get your fingers ready and let yourself slip into the bleep space.
