In 2005 I made the music for Entter’s net.art project Illegal Heroes. Someone asked me for the song, and it seems like I forgot to release it into the wild. So here it is! 7 years later. Or, 3 actually. Because it’s released in October 2008. Check it out:
The Dutch breakcore/drone artist Neurobit just released 5 Attempts to Synq the Elements. It includes a track we made together in Amsterdam in 2009.
It’s basically some sort of minimalist ambient, where I C64-improvise on top of Neurobit’s trickeries with the Nintendo DS. You can tell that it’s 101% de-synchronized! Download it for free from Lowtoy.
The song is taken from a session where we recorded something like 5 songs. Maybe they’ll get released some day!
Diamond Flash is a new Spanish movie from Psicosoda Films. It uses my Amiga chiptune Aaf, made in 1997. You wouldn’t have guessed that from the poster, would you? A daring choice of music, so big cinema applause for Diamond Flash! I wonder if there are any more movies with Amiga music…
Oh, I just found this preview of my upcoming 7″ on Pingipung this summer. Vocals by Raquel Meyers, orchestrated by a dirty little 6581 chip. It’s part of the Summer of Seven, and the first one is already out. The second one will be by Peter Presto, which is one of my favourite cute-dub producers around. And he also wrote the first book about chipmusic a few years ago, oh yeah! So go get some Pingis Pung!
I released some stuff at the Göteborgian demo-party Datastorm. As Goto80 I made Linkan (C64-song – darkish electro(nica)dub-tronica), Dubskvaller4 (wonky reggae-funk Amiga-song), Acid Burger (C64-demo, PETSCII and acid glitch) and all episodes of Bit För Bit (video). I may or may not have contributed to “the worst C64-demo ever“, SNPFCT3, Sommarfunk, Command Center and something by Christer Ganjabladh. No hits this year – strictly anti-1337!
It was made with mostly (only?) sounds from ST-01 and ST-02 (that means Amigaaaaa 1987), and encoded in 80kbps to hide the lamer sound of Renoise. Lol-yeah-ölollö!
Also performed live and was interviewed by one of the authors of MusicLine (best ‘chip’-tracker, except for LSDj and Defmon?). Find the recordings on “internet”.
