Aloha, I release and perform music using 1980’s computers (and other things) usually somewhere between pop-ambient and acid-funk-hardcore. I also do art and research about old (new) media and its aesthetics, politics and cultures.

You can keep up with me through fax, RSS and even an electronic cyber newsletter:

GOTO22 Glitches

I looked at Goto22 on a BBS (The Yard) in a silly way (V for view file right in the BBS) and it looked like this. Big success! Click to enhance.

Review of Lo Fi Mono Festival

My music does not really got any reviews anymore. It didn’t happen a lot before either, but at least sometimes. Well, 2022 is kicking off nicely with a MUSIC REVIEW IN A BLOG. Yeah! 2022 takes the best of 2005? Maybe. Or. Yeah. Well, my music under review is actually from 2001 or even years before that if I’m being honest. See, I recently re-published my first cassette LO FI MONO FESTIVAL to Bandcamp, without even blogging about it OOOOh.  Listen to this:

“This is pretty short, but I wanted to include it because when I come at an album titled Lo Fi Mono Festival, I do not expect to have a good time. This was fun from the word go, far heavier on the “festival” than the “lo fo mono”. And that part’s not even that bad, really! This includes a couple video game covers, from Super Mario Land and the original Mega Man, and they sound great like this. So yeah, short but sweet, an unexpected hit. 8.5/10”

(they also reviewed Hardcore Family, but less enthusiastic)

Goto22 – ANSCII Carnival

A while back I released a collection of text graphics called Goto20. It was really well received at ASCII Arena, and now I’ve made another one: Goto22. They both use this rather unusual style that is wedged right in between two traditionally conflicting scenes for text graphics: Amiga ASCII and PC ANSI. Basically, I’ve chosen a bastard style that nobody is supposed to like but damnit it’s winning people over, one by one. We call it ANSCII. ANSCIIIIII!! Want to join the movement? I’ve used Blocktronics’ Moebius which is available for Win, Mac and Linux.

I’ve actually joined the ASCII group diViNE stYleRs and this thing of mine was first released on their Amiga BBS, The Yard. Releasing things first on a BBS is the shit. Ok yeah whatever.
