Trails and Ways Como Te Vas

I’m a big fan of musicians going beyond making music and into new territory such as visual art or technology. Well, Oakland’s Trails and Ways has now combined their music with both and made a little game out of it, too. In their recently released “Como Te Vas” game, you can create your own mix of their track by the same name, turning each of the six tracks on or off, and adding various effects, such as “Brazilian Forest” or “Giant Cave”. As you change the effects of each track, the groovy 8-bit landscape changes as well. It’s an insanely cool way to kill a little time and unleash your inner producer. Play the game here (it only works in Google Chrome), stream or download audio of “Como Te Vas” below, and catch Trails and Ways when their September tour of California with Stars swings through San Francisco for two nights at Slim’s and Great American.
