Gaming on any system is a mysterious world to me and I stand on the edge and look into it like Alice at the entrance to wonderland.

Recently I jumped into that black hole and found myself lost in a place I don't understand. It is a place full of spectacle and phenomena which feeds my imagination. In many ways I represent all the people who know nothing about games, who are uninspired and uninterested in games. As such, I'm not sure whether I'm particularly welcome here. The way I look at computer games is nothing like an ordinary gamer would look at them. My 'reviews' are naive, ridiculous observations that only someone totally inexperienced could make.

I am inspired by that edge where two distant and separate things meet. What I am interested in is the collision of my own creative world with the creativity of the gaming world. There is something about the gaming wonderland which challenges my understanding of what constitutes beautiful art. It's tempting to be something of a purist when it comes to art, and particularly my own art of creating music, but recently notions of possibility and process have been more important to me than clear-cut, polished beauty.

What I have created here I created at home in my spare room, with whatever I could find lying around the house. These songs come from a place of immediacy - like the first word that comes into your head.

    1.8 The Infuriating and Alluring Case of Mr Kyle Hyde - Hotel Dusk DS

    The Infuriating and Alluring Case of Mr Kyle Hyde

    If I wanted to read a book I'd read a book with slightly better dialogue and plot.
    If I wanted to watch a film noir I'd watch a film noir with slightly better cinematography
    If I wanted to play a game I'd play a game if you get my meaning.

    Having said that I love you Kyle Hyde and your come kiss me eyes
    I love you Kyle Hyde and the secrets you hide behind your eyes
    Won't you come on down to room 215 where wishes come true

    Everyone thinks you're a cynical bastard but I know better
    You just need a little tenderness and a soft-knit sweater
    Oh I'd wrap you up, I'd wrap you up safe from you memories
    No more nightmares darling not with me so take yourself a little less seriously

    I love you Kyle Hyde and your come kiss me eyes
    I love you Kyle Hyde and the secrets you hide behind your eyes
    Won't you come on down to room 215 where wishes come true

    Whatever you do keep your mouth shut for five minutes can't you Kyle?
    If you give me another game over and I have to listen to your jabber one more time I might just have to shoot you like you shot your partner, how could you?
    Kyle Hyde, Kyle Hyde just died.
    Kyle Hyde, Kyle Hyde just died.
    I'll get over it.

    1.7 This Poem - Flower PlayStation 3

    This Poem

    Oh I know now what it's like to dream as a flower would
    Oh I know now what it's like to write a symphony with my fingertips
    Who said, who said I couldn't touch the depths of emotion with this, through this?
    It's seamless movement, breathtaking, filmic, it's your own interpretation

    So take your time, can you bear the weight of this poem?
    Won't you take your time, can you stay long enough to breathe it?
    Don't you know it makes its way into your veins

    Oh I know now how a valley comes to life, how a city dies
    Oh I know now how fragile it feels on the wind
    Who said, who said I couldn't touch the depths of emotion with this, through this?
    It pushes the boundaries, communicates in mysteries, it's your own experience

    So take your time, can you bear the weight of this poem?
    Won't you take your time, can you stay long enough to breathe it?
    Don't you know it makes its way unlike any other game into your veins

    Don't Shoot Them Lyrics

    You don't scare me Resident Evil 5 even though I'm a girl with light blue eyes, in the dark playing till morning light, watching blood oozing from zombie eyes

    You don't impress me Resident Evil 5 even though your graphics are bona fide And Chris' arms and Sheva's boobs blow my mind This is nothing more than shooting zombie hide

    It's not their fault don't shoot them, try to hug them and hold them instead It's not their fault, if you love them they will be your zombie pets

    You don't win me over Resident Evil 5 even though playing co-op can be nice And the AI can hold her own in a fight, I'm still shooting zombies like it's alright

    It's not their fault don't shoot them, try to hug them and hold them instead It's not their fault, you should love them even though you might end up dead

    They just need to be loved, they just need a lover's touch, they just need to be loved
