Sweet <3 for my Def Jam

Last weekend I was in the Netherlands to play at the X’2018 C64 fiesta, and the lovely Gifgrond in Tilburg. I played a fully improvised set, where I start completely from scratch and make all the instruments and composingz as I go along.

Yeah I Know It Sucks had some very nice things to say about my performance. This approach was so unique and friendly, totally unique and exposed; where normally a lot of electronic musicians hide behind their desk, Goto80 showed the polar opposite. [..] He had nothing to hide, didn’t come out all the way from Sweden to play a game of digital patience or check out his emails; he sincerely laid himself and his music process bare, naked in front of you with astonishing music as a result.

Thanks for that! Feels particularly pleasing since I’m working on an album of C64-improvs at the moment. That will be out next year, after I release another album that I’m working on…

So many albums, so little shirbums.

Featured in the radio show Diggin’ in the Carts

Diggin’ in the carts was started by Nick Dwyer as a rather fantastic video documentary series in 2014 and has continued as a radio show focused on Japanese game music since.

In this brand new episode they are looking outside of Japan for the first time, and they interviewed me about the history of computer and video game music in the West. Rather big topic, eh? :) Pete from Anamanaguchi is also in the show.

So enjoy! It will go offline in 29 days I think.

Lecture in Frankfurt

I’m doing a presentation called HOW 8-BIT MACHINES CHANGED ELECTRONIC MUSIC at Robert Johnson Theorie in Frankfurt, on 20 October (not 13 as it said before). I will do some critical history on computer music and trackers, as well as the cultures around music/scene/cracking. Basically, I will prove that trackers are the best. =) And will also play some tunes, oh yup.

PET.CORP will also join and talk about their new mega tool for PETSCII visuals!
