About Us

Carl Murray

Creator

Hello, my name is Carl Murray!  I am the creator behind The Sound Cypher series of games!  The Sound Cypher was born out of a mutual love for music between two people getting to know each other! The game started as a way to share music and was the answer to the proverbial question of, ā€œwhat do you know about this (song/album)?ā€ What better way to get to know someone than to find out what music speaks to their soul. 

When I first met Jilene (my wife), we used to sit on the foot of the bed and play music in an attempt to 1 up each other with a better song. This back and forth used to last for hours and became a regular past time.  Eventually, life went on, we got married, moved abroad, and experienced life the way adults do. However, it always came back to the music.

Fast forward a few years, I started thinking about a way to share this game with friends. This lead to me starting a note on my phone and anytime a music conversation would arise Iā€™d jot down any thoughts that came to mind. These scribbles turn into a database of musical categories and topics and eventually The Sound Cypher was born.
