Heavy Distance is the ground breaking interactive single from Lisle Engle.
Heavy Distance is a song wrapped in an explorative gaming environment. It has been described as a cross between a virtual album cover and an interactive music video. Lisle has taken his song creation and expanded the lyrics into a surreal landscape for the listener to explore and unlock. Lyrics referencing “time”, “photographs", and "frozen winters" are materialized inside the environment for the player to discover. Once all of the pieces of the game have been collected and matched to their proper times and locations, the player is allowed to enjoy the final song presentation in full psychedelic 3D glory.
Heavy Distance is completely non-violent, with no weapons, danger or death. It is a mysterious and serene experience, where a lost love whispers through desert winds, while the distant call of a desert eagle echos from above.
Relax and explore this interactive world that takes the idea of a music single to an entirely new level of complexity and visualization.
Lisle Engle Heavy Distance can be downloaded from Google Play or Apple's App Store.
Released in 2007, California Miles contains a nice overview of some of Lisle's best early solo material. Amazing accompaniment by Dorian Cheah, Steve Holmes and Giuseppe Patane on many of the tracks. This record contains lots of trippy audio montages between the tracks to tie the different themes of the songs together.
Music, Post, Games, Weddings... Parties... Karaoke... all that!
Released in 1995, Welcome To The Future was created in the wake of early CDROM Adventure Games like MYST, but with a bit more of a metaphysical bent and a touch of Pink Floyd. WTTF sold a few units back in the day and stands as the world's first truly interactive concept album. WTTF is currently being updated for re-release but may still be available on play store depending on the vintage of your device.
Please Standby for updates.
