In 2006 I got the chance to submit some music to an upcoming Maxis game called Spore. After a meeting in Emeryville California where I got to see a little of the game in progress, I came home and composed a sample piece to submit for the game.

The response was positive. I continued working on the piece with good feedback. However, at the same time Brian Eno and Cliff Martinez were hired as true composers of the game and I slowly slipped out of the project. After the game's release I was contacted by Maxis because they wanted to send me a copy of the game. I had no idea that my song was kept as is for the Sporepedia portion of the game.

Fast forward a few years I start seeing my song posted online with credits going to Brian Eno and Cliff Martinez. I wasn't even on the WIKI page. Not only did people really enjoy the song but over time it had become a musical reminiscent musical slice of their teen years. I contacted a few you tube people and let them know I was the composer. Over time I have been given credit for the song.

BUT there's more. When I stared seeing my song online I knew that only a portion of the original piece was in the game. I dug around and found the hard drive and literally plugged it in backwards and fried the only back up I had of the song. The full song and PROOF that I was the composer was gone for good.

Well not for good. I won't name names but it turns out that someone from somewhere special somehow kept a copy of my song during the composition process.

So, it's with extreme pleasure that over 10 years later I present the full uncut version of Sporepedia.
