Norwegian Kids Funk 1814

Eidsvoll 1814 is a Norwegian museum, obsesssed with the year 1814. They’ve made a video with kids talking about important things and it was just published on the local newspaper’s YouTube channel. The spasmofunky music was made by me. In 1814. Video by Øivind Strand Sandbu.

Datastorm Releases

Datastorm is a demoparty. That means that you go there, make some stuff, throw competitions, and see who wins. There is no money involved. And no CVs. No big prizes. No academic explanations, and no PR. It’s like an oasis of freedom. Although there’s too many middle-aged men with bad taste, it’s an incredible thing.

For this year’s Datastorm, me and my Hack n’ Trade group members didn’t have much prepared. But we managed to get a demo together in just two days, and I finished a ballad (!) for the competition too.

Fist of Trade is a sort of spooky typewriter-style animation that only uses PETSCII text characters. I made the music, Acid T*rroreast animated and Mathman programmed the codez. Features amazing four-directional PETSCII scrolls, stone faces and gabber fists from hell. I think the video is made with an emulator, because the sounds are a bit off.

The Great Ballad of the Storm That Never Ends is a futurist ballad from the past. Probably the most calm compo tune I’ve done since that Ajvar Relish dub from 2001. Big thanks to 8GB for some excellent progamming help.

Also the hot crew Afrika used my music for their demos Wasting Data (elite glitch) and Kebab Pjuck II (shoe fetish). The songs are not played correctly so they sound very good.

Amiiigggaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Birds on Fire & Other Superiorities

Last year me & my C64-demogroup Hack n’ Trade compiled a C64-floppy full of hot software, to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. FÅGELDISK! It had a bird theme, as you can also see in the main demo on the disk, 20 years is nothing:

So we just spread copies of the floppy around at the BFP copy party, and forgot about it. But now I’ve made it available online. It has some pretty sweet stuff, like the defMON tracker that has been unavailable before, unreleased demos, HT Gold, new demos, and so on. Here’s some of it:

Birds on Fire (2013) is a short demo with, well, birds on fire. Made by Linde, Raquel Meyers and me.

TEVE DEMO (1995). One of the first C64-demos I can remember making. It’s a list of TV-shows, mixed with teenage profanities.

Penguin Huddle (2013) is a double-SID song by Jellica.

Pleasant Evening Bird Disco (2013) is a triple-SID song by Jellica

L0v3 byt3s

L0v3 byt3s (NSFW) is a PETSCII-conversion of the old xxx-movie Love Bites. We made it as an impersonation of Vuk Cosic, famous for his ASCII-conversions of Deep Throat among other things. L0ve byt3s was made for Daniel Temkin’s exhibition Netvvorth, December 2013.

I made the music together with Zabutom and Linde, Johan Kotlinski coded it and Raquel Meyers did everything else.

The music is basically several long jams, pretty much unedited. The first one is me on defMON and Zabutom on some sort of modular synth monster. We recorded it in the Academy of Music and Drama in Göteborg – the perfect place for pr0n-music!

Somewhere in the middle this FM/ST-01 jam starts with Linde, and then more defMON and so on.

How to make C64 music

I recorded myself making some beats from scratch on the C64. Acid funk skweee something? Nothing fancy, but gives you a peek into how it works. Or not. But just copy all my moves and then you have a C64-song!

Obviously there’s lots of boring parts, because this wasn’t supposed to be a live jam like 2SLEEP1 or sth. Skip and be happy.

New Video!

Yesh yesh! Raquel Meyers made this video, and then I made the sounds for it. It was released in the magazine Det Grymma Svärdet 13/14.

Wiiiii! Uiuiuiui!

Acid Burger

C64-demo made by Acid Terrorist, Linde and me in 2011. Released at Datastorm 2011. Don’t forget to buy the first acid burger menu, and the others. This was recorded with a crap device so if you can, download and watch it on a C64 with CRT-screen and new SID-chip.
