Pearl Pixel is the moniker for Alex Ripple, a student going through the Berklee College of Music program. Getting through school by occasionally playing sessions on flute, oboe, and effigy flute, composing, and working full time, Alex is hoping to be an established composer by the time she's 90. Hopefully that works out for her.
Some fun facts:
Why in the eff "Pearl Pixel"?!
Well have you ever heard of an anagram? All the letters of 'Alex Ripple' fit into 'Pearl Pixel'. Classic example of an anagram and once I found that name, I knew it was the one that was going to stick!
Why get into Vidja Games?
More like WHY NOT? Am I right?
But actually, as a wee little lass I loved to play games with my family, my favorite being Donkey Kong 64. Of course being the great game that it is, DK64 it has an awesome soundtrack by none other than Grant Kirkhope. Little did I know, that weird Scottish guy would be my inspiration getting into music *a.k.a. I actually practiced my instruments... playing his music - not my music for class*. I later realized in middle school I didn't want to be a chef anymore, I wanted to write music like Mr. Kirkhope. But I didnt want to just write music, I also wanted to inspire someone else to write like he's inspired me. So that's what I'm setting out to do!
