Wesley Guiles (aka Mr. Gee) is attempting to write 87 songs in 87 days leading up to the release of Fallout 4, a game
he is very excited about. You can actually follow his
current progress (over 30 songs now) on this youtube
Why 87? Because on August 12, 2015, while perusing the Fallout subreddits,
he realized one of his favorite franchises was going to be released in
87 days. As many of his projects have begun, he just figured he
have a go at it and see what happened.
How is this possible? Well, he's had experience writing a LOT of songs
participating in FAWM.org
for the past 7 years.
Perhaps what makes this more amazing (or insane) is that Steven is a
husband, father of three,
and full time middle
Mr. Gee is no stranger to video game-inspired music either. He's
toured with his former band Pushstart Wagon, written lovely folk music
with his wife, and created music that's been heard on The Mindy
Project, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, NPR All Songs Considered, and
many other music and film outlets.
He released an eighteen song album, Songs in
the Key of Minecraft, inspired by the omni-popular game,
Mr. Gee’s ran a succesful Kickstarter
in February of 2014. Those songs were all written in one
month. Still, 87 songs is a lot, so he's enlisted the help of
musician and Youtuber Bonecage (REO Speedwagon parody, "I Can't Wait For
several of his internet song-writing friends, and many redditors who
have offered lyric ideas and song suggestions. You could say
it'll take a village.
His songs vary from heavy metal and punk to happy pop
and hip-hop songs. One commonality among all
of the songs is his
humorous approach to music. “I feel that music must reach people
on some basic emotional level, and humor is something that most people
can relate to. Plus, I’ve always been one to try and
lighten a room with a joke." Not that all of the Fallout songs will be
about roses and rainbows. The game matter is much darker, so,
songs like Pint-Sized
Slasher Cautionary Tale will also be present next to boppy 1930s
era-sounding tunes like "I'd Blow Up The World For You".
