Music

At the moment I'm gearing up to launch the new DEV JANA BLUES BAND while also playing lead guitar and singing backups for NEPTUNE RECOVERY. I just uploaded a solo acoustic song (Where the Sun Finds Rest) for the NPR Tiny Desk Concert Competition. Check it out on the music page - there's also an MP3 download link on the music page.
NEXT SHOW: Jan 17th - Noise Fest at Harold's Place in Long Beach (Neptune Recovery)

Unity Music System

Check out the intro overview vid
I'm working on a music creation system in Unity that will allows music made with the system to be tied in to the game world. That is, the thump of the kick drum could control a platform or the ping of a guitar sound would be tied to the particle emmissions of a fire trap... or whatever. It is in its infancy and ATM you can create beats and save/load them. I am considering putting it on the Unity Store.
Ping me on twitter for more info if you are interested in using it or just wanna know more.

Baby Fart Flyer

"Did you know babies can fart hard enough to fly? Well it is true... when they eat burritos. Stay in the air as long as possible by using your Fart Power to get achievements prizes like Binkys, Blankys, and even a Teddy Bear! Choose from preset heads and bodies or use a custom head from an image URL!"
A fun little HTML5 game I did from a concept by my friend Rob Pak with illustration by me friend Lauren Jadick. Something simple and fun and an opportunity to learn HTML5 Canvas.

Who Am I?

(meant in the more factual sense than an existential exploration)

This is pretty much covered in the other pages and above, but here's the TLDR:
Currently living and loving life in LA, but I'm from Erie, PA which will always be my home town. I've also lived in Boca Raton FL, Minneapolis MN, Phoenix AZ, Burlington VT, Sarasota FL, Minneapolis (again), and finally now to Los Angeles. Playing music and making games everywhere I went. The first song I played with other people was "A Forest" by the Cure when I was 14. I started writing computer games when I was 11 on my family's Apple IIe.

How surprising!

You read all the way down here?

Seriously, I wasn't expecting anyone to check out this part of my web site. Why did you? Why are you so interested in me and/or my website? I wouldn't have read this far and I'm me.. Hit me up on Twitter (@devjana) and say what's up. Let me know you actually read this. I'll probably give you some kinda "no prize" (like Stan Lee used to).

Random Notes
