In Extremis

Soundtrack Saturday: Apr.18

Ypx here—today we’re going to be listening to “Moths and Moonlight” from The Floor Is Jelly.

The Floor is Jelly is another puzzle-platformer scored by Disasterpeace, and it is again masterful. Developed by Ian Snyder and released in 2014, the game imagines if the entire world was made out of non-Newtonian fluids. Everything is bouncy!

Unlike much of Disasterpeace’s other work, this does not open with synths or chiptunes, but a distorted Hang-like instrument (an instrument in the new family of handpans). A slow and disjointed acoustic bassline joins the pan noodling, and several distorted reverbs and effects create the illusion of tree leaves shaking in the wind, or a similar natural environment.
