Brand new High Skies remix of the classic Fury Phreaks track, Soothe (feat Terra Deva and Charles Webster)
Only ARP Odyssey, voice and Roland Space Echo.
The video is an animation of all the frequency dynamics in the music, the colours being the intensities of the frequencies. It’s available in 4k resolution if you view in full screen (set your eyes to retina).
Osmos 2 has been released for iOS and is a free update.
Introducing multiplayer and iPad retina support.
And for this weekend you can play against the devs (until our batteries run out). I’ll add all the Game Center names here as things progress.
I am = OsmosDev_Mat
Dave Burke = OsmosDev_Dave
Andy Nealen = OsmosDev_Andy
Play against your friends (and enemies), locally (via wi-fi or Bluetooth), or over the Internet (random or invitations)!
Osmos is just like real life; you float around absorbing biophobes, trying to avoid getting pulled into a giant sun; and just like real life, some tips on sub-nuclear physics and orbital mechanics would probably come in very handy. These tips will help you progress from being wonderfully average, to a little better than average.
NEWTON’S LAW OF FREE ENERGY One of the best ways to increase your mass and vector in Osmos is to point yourself at a wall and charge.
The (added) arrows show the direction of your path.
On the above image, your ‘mass’ is expelled behind you (lined up under the red arrows) and will increasingly travel in your direction as you gather speed, following you, so that as you are slowed down by Newton’s First Law (by absorbing motes unfortunate enough to be smaller than you), the same motes you expelled earlier will catch you up and be reabsorbed back into your well-fed self. So now you have plumpness with matching residual motion for free, where you can continue on, absorbing motes in your path.
Over on the Physics of Osmos blog they have an Osmos competition. Create a one-minute video illustrating the physics concept that you discover in the game. The top entry will win a $500 gift card to Amazon.com. The top three runners up will also receive prizes.

Near Silence, a free album for anyone who donates to the Red Cross Japan appeal.
A supercooled album fractured with exclusives, classics and the new.
Richard Barbieri has exclusively re-recorded his classic Japan track ‘The Experience of Swimming'; Charles Webster has donated an exclusive mix from his brand new January Tuesday project, which was only recorded last week; and Eno colloborator Roedelius, one of the electronic pioneers alongside Kraftwerk, has donated his classic ‘Wenn der Südwind Weht'; plus an unreleased High Skies track and new material from Woob and Anne Garner.
Please help us to collect donations for Japan by spreading this link on Facebook, Twitter, forums and email.
