808642 is my new release to celebrate 808-day (8/8) like a real drum machine freak. You get some electro, techno, some sort of pop, drum n’ bass and some slow beats.
Just like 80864 it uses primarily TR-808 and Commodore 64, but also other things. A lot of the songs are based on jams, and the last song is actually a 15 minute jam that I didn’t have time to finish properly, but I included it anyway.
I played a live show from home for Kenobit‘s Twitch-stream, Kenobisbosch. From dub-electronica to acid to electro, pretty much? I tried a new setup (that I should’ve tried ages ago): two C64s, Amiga 600, the ER-1 drum machine and two effects (a boss delay and a Fusionbox, which stopped working half way through).
Since my camera bailed out on me a few times, I asked to have the Venezuelan poodle moth replace me. You’ll hardly notice the difference.
Okay, two shows in Netherlands coming up soon!
1 February: Eindbaas at EKKO in Utrecht along with Boa Constructor, 4ntler, Megathrive and IXIIXI.
30 January: Byte Me in Pier 15 Skatepark in Breda together with RoccoW, Monodeer, Wisefire, 4ntler, DJ Nomad, VJ Chipwarrior and hoppiescotch.
Be here or be there!
PETSCII – A Character Set and a Creative Platform is an article that Markku Reunanen, Tero Heikkinen and me wrote two years ago. It’s published in Replay, the Polish journal of game studies, and is available as a PDF free to download.
Today there’s Allhelgonafest at Truckstop Alaska with me (and Cuadrigula on visuals), The Toilet & Ljudit Andersson, Bruce Leenus and Venguns playing. The theme of the evening is TECHNICAL ERROR so you can expect lots of lovely errorism all around.
Remember to become a member of Truckstop (for free) before you come, if you aren’t already. (Truckstop Alaska is closing at the end of the year, so this is one of your last chances to visit one of the most legendary venues in Göteborg.)
Bitte Acht Bits in Strasbourg, 21 September with Otto von Rhino, General Cochonnou, Crash Server and me.
New C64-demo from Hack n’ Trade released at DATASTORM! PETSCII, noises, animals, laundry tools, music software and other things that are not supposed to be in a demo. It goes on forever, never stop watching!
Features Linde, Ray Manta, Jellica, Ilkke, Frantic, Mathman, AcidT*, me, Whizzy, Chantal Goret and Ant1.
I even coded one of the parts – my first and last one! More info and download at CSDb.
