A downloadable song for Windows and macOS

This piece is an interactive remix of That Time in '88 by Shortcircles. It's kind of like a theme park ride through a city that's waking up at dawn. Look around with the mouse to continue on your path or select one of a few branches, and hear a different mix of the music depending on where you go. There's no rush to continue; the music will keep going no matter how long you take. And there's no wrong path, only different ones.

This piece was done using a binaural spatializer, and the music happens all around you. Headphones offer the best experience, allowing you to locate the sound around you.
