I’m playing at Erica Synths Garage in Riga this Friday. It’ll be a C64-improv most likely spaced out chill out techno dub, and probably together with a magic mystery guest.
Zden is notorious in the demoscene for his consistent output of abstract/glitch/noise-inspired demos, mostly for PC. Last weekend he released his first Amiga demo, Amis Cope. It uses my music (a recording of a song mostly using the C64). It runs on old Amigas (ECS/OCS) with extra RAM and an FPU (eg a Vampire graphics card), or newer Amigas with accelerator cards (060).
Here’s an hour of hot Amiga megamixing by Spot, Qwan, Syphus, Teis, Varthall and me. Up Rough Megamix 1! You can download it and run into on your Amiga 1200, or check the video below. It was shown for the first time 10 years ago, but there were some “technical problems” that required 10 years of fixing. You know how it is.
My new release is not just an album, but also a shirt. It’s a shirbum! Catchy and melancholic pop music full of mega basic FM-sounds, synth speech vocals, 80’s drum machines and friendly acid bombs. Made in cooperation with PET.CORP (who btw just launched some other PETSCII-clothes in their shop).
- Shirbum is a high-quality tailor-made C64-shirt that comes with all the 23 songs (QR/stream/download).
- Shirbum Light is the naked digital version with 15 songs (also on Spotify)
The shirt won’t be available for long, so choose wisely! When you place your order you will get the music instantly, and the shirt will be shipped as soon as the tailor is done (more info here).
Btw, the shirt shows one of the songs from the album (Buck) as it looks in the C64-software, JCH Editor, that it was made in.
Tower of Hanoi is a new Gameboy game, out now on cartridge. It’s a delicious remediation of the classic Tower of Hanoi math/puzzle game, and one of my songs is used as the in-game music. To be honest, it’s an old song (a version of Bongoloid) that I made some 15 years ago. But who cares about time? It’s all about the moves, and to make as few moves as possible. So I think I won the game already!
The game was coded by David Revelj, who goes under the demoscene name Dalton.
I’m playing Chipwrecked Festival this summer, a chip music festival on a small island between Sweden and Poland. So far only a few artists have been announced, but if it’s anything like the previous years there will be a loooong list of acts. Bornholm, muffakaz!
