about

Yeah, I'm still here. Although I had big plans, creatively the past 2-3 years or so haven't been so great to say the least. But here's four short tracks I wrote during 2014 and 2015.

"Bumblebee" and "Earthworm" were originally written during one hour tracking competitions and fixed up a bit afterwards (that's also why these tunes are especially short). No post-production has been done, these are renditions of the original Schism Tracker files. They're a bit silly, and reminiscent of certain Amiga/PC videogame soundtracks from the 1990s.

The other two tracks are more chippy in nature, a bit of an evolution of what you've heard on my album "Tracked & Traced". "Zap!" has been unreleased so far and was written with OpenMPT. Heavy use was made of gWem's ymVST, which emulates the Atari ST soundchip. The same goes for "Outline", which is an edited version of DSS's invitation demo for the Outline 2015 demoparty.

Well, this is not a major release, but it's a lifesign. Maybe a few of you people out there enjoy it :). And hopefully I'll be back in full swing at some point in time.
