Deadmau5 is joining the trailblazing ranks of electronic music producers who double as film/television score creators, like Daft Punk, Underworld, Trent Reznor, Chemical Brothers, and Kavinsky. This week, Joel Zimmerman has been toiling away in the studio while aligning his bleeps and bloops with what appears to be an animated short or series. The titular character of this show is surprisingly his pet feline, Meowingtons.
You can make out an abbreviated version of ‘Terrors in my Head,’ a punchy electro/progressive track by deadmau5 in the videos below, one shared to Instagram and the other ripped from a Twitch stream. It looks like this animated Meowingtons project will employ both previously produced material and new orchestration. Beyond the tunes, it’s pretty darn cool to see that the mau5 is making something that could fit right at home on the Cartoon Network.
Could this be the long lost project that’s been in development since at least 2012? Only time will tell what the Canadian producer is really cooking up.
okay, serious question here… what actor do you think should play the voice of my cat, meowingtons pHd. im serious here, humor me.
