A Note from Marcus: PAX West anybody?

Hello everyone!

I will be attending PAX West this Sept. Thing is, I’m pretty big on these conferences… if it isn’t informative/educational, it’s at least ridiculously fun. That, and I always look forward to meeting with friends old and new,  since these conferences serve as a “hub” for developers/like minded people.

If anyone is interested it meeting up with me this coming PAX West, please feel free to email me!

The Killing Strain Score

New music from the upcoming film, “The Killing Strain” has been added to www.marcuszuhr.com.

The Killing Strain’s score resembles something technical, sporadic and and panicked. An embodiment of squirming zombie terror. Not something unlike that of the sonic insanity of “Dead Space”, with perhaps a touch of neo-romanticism in between the cracks.
