Jazz Touchstones

Jazz touchstones. Musician Gary Curtis has produced what he calls a “humble” audio-game. His simple but aurally rewarding toy presents the opportunity to trigger a select number of samples atop a soulful backing track. Brief phrases appear in sequence, like lines in a poem, against a black background in your web browser. Clicking on a given phrase will trigger a corresponding sound. The phrases include “the sax blows high,” “the sax plays sweet and low,” “the angels are calling” and others. Sometimes the phrases appear alone; sometimes they share the screen at the same time.
