Skybox nominated for Meteoriks
Skybox, the C64-demo in PETSCII that Extend made with my music, has been nominated in the Meteoriks 2023. That’s the yearly awards for all things demoscene. I don’t think I’ve ever worked on something that was nominated, so that’s cool. It’s good that some stuff a bit off the beaten path can get some attention as well, hehe.
V/A: 20y20k (20kbps rec)
20y20k is a 20 year celebration of 20kbps rec, a steadfast point to return to while online music continues to deteriorate. Their website is exactly the same today as it was back then, and that works just fine.
Anyway, this compilation features classic 20kbps artists such as Jimmy Slaughter, Starpause, The Hardliner, Overthruster, Atarix, Origami Repetika, Sascha Müller, me and many more.
Old releases popping up
If you are following me on Bandcamp, you’ve seen that I’m re-publishing a lot of old releases there. Just now I did Wet Pulse, for example.

More stuff on the way!
Remix for Makeup and Vanity Set
I made a remix for Makeup and Vanity Set’s new album Time. Specifically, I worked on the song Information. As I sometimes do with remixes, I tried to make it closer to the original artist than myself. Or maybe just not myself? I’m not sure. Go get some!
Two shows in Switzerland
I’m playing two shows in Switzerland together with Eat-Rabbit, gwEm and Cyanid Dansen!

New demoscene things
I had some music released on the Zoo demoparty in Finland this weekend.
DiverSIDty #2 is a music disk with music by loads of people like Danko, Fegolhuzz, Flotsam and Shogoon. And me. You can download the file on CSDb and run it in a C64 emulator.
Skybox is a an impressive, noisy, stylish and eerie C64-demo made by the excellent Finnish demogroup Extend (and me). It’s all made in PETSCII, and plenty of it is made by Electric who I have worked with several times before. The demo is available in C64-format at CSDb.
Hey, unrelated but… You know what? In May next year it will be 30 years since I released my first demoscene thing?!
Nothing but Impure
This one was released in Impure#83 and is also available on aSCIIaRENA.
