I Get Chills – My new single

 

People have described it as “Crunchy and Loud” and I am really proud of it. It is a song about confronting apathy. The album cover is a still frame from the unreleased video clip that will feature some of my own Creative, Vfx and Animation work. I have received help from some very talented and awesome people that have donated their time and energy into my clip, which has been very humbling, and I can’t wait to show you it when it’s done.

 

Until then (I have to get back to working on it :P ), Enjoy the new track. (and it’s only 2bucks)

 

A Baby is dancing to my music. Oh yeah!

I couldn’t stop smiling when I saw this! In the words of clap trap from borderlands “Look at me, I’m dancing .. I’m dancing!”.

 

Music and Geekery Panel @ Unconvention 2011

Unconvention 2011

 

I’ve been asked to speak on the Music and Geekery panel at Unconvention this year. I’ll be talking about my side project “7bit Hero” and really hope it’ll be well received. It’s been nearly a whole year since I started working on 7bit hero and there is still months worth of work ahead of me but man is it going to be worth it.

 

You can read more below, which also hints and what I’ve been working on with 7bit hero.

I won best soundtrack.

Scene.org

 

I’ve been in the demo scene for a long time. I remember when I watched demos on my amiga that I had downloaded from BBS’s (this is pre-internet) and learning about the demo parties that happened each year where coders, musicians and gfx artist competed to see who could push things further then those before them. It was awesome in my eyes, really awesome. For me there where 2 musicians that inspired my love for tracking one was 4mat and the other was Moby (no not that newage hippy, whom I also like) but the scener. Thank you 4mat and Moby for inspiring me to start writing tracker music in the scene because I wouldn’t have the sound I have today if it wasn’t for that.

 

Although this is a different mix of the track here is the original of the song that won best soundtrack. If you feel the need to support what I do then purchasing this will help. Listen and purchase – All falls down. A little about this track, I wrote this all in Buzz and mixed it all down in Cubase. This was first written on piano and then played into buzz, I rarely do it in that order but it gave it a different feel.

 

 

Later this year I will be releasing a chiptune sounding album on renoise (and digital download) as I pay my respects to the original demoscene. This will be released under the side project 7bitHero. I’m really excited about this project as I want to bring the demoscene sounding music into the mainstream. It has always been my passion to get this music out there and heard. There are just so many better artists in the demoscene then myself and I would really love to see them more recognized.

 

Thank you scene.org and everyone in the demoscene. I am honoured.

 

My Cover of Astroboy [On Soundcrane supporting Japan]

 

I love Japan. I grew up watching a lot of cartoons that were over dubbed for English consumption. I later became more fascinated by the culture when I took Japanese language studies at school. That also led to my first experience of sushi. These few imprints planted a deep love for the place.

 

A few weeks back, when those images started rolling in, when the earthquake and tsunami hit, my heart broke for the country. I was totally silenced. It was one of those cases where it is too much to take in. I’ve been praying for Japan and it’s speedy recovery ever since.

 

A few days after that event I was contacted by Chris Perren (Mr.Maps) and he wanted to put together a Japanese covers album. He has asked local artists to cover famous Japanese songs and then the proceeds from all sales go to raising money for the disaster. It is a fantastic idea as you feel so helpless over here and wonder what you can do to help out and with this small project we can.

 

I reconstructed the happy theme tune from “Astro Boy” as it was one of my all time favourite shows growing up. I merged it with some sweet J-Pop sounds and then created a new take on the tune. It’s an amazingly eclectic album and purchasing this will help raise money for Japan. I’ll post more about this track later but for now enjoy the heart that everyone has put into this! If you want to just listen to my song only press play below.

 

 

Big thanks to Chris Perren from Mr.Maps on this project.
