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!”.

 

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.

 

Kotaku mention on the demo I did music for

Kotaku

 

I’m really into the computer game scene and follow the Kotaku blog. So when the demo you did music for gets a mentioned in a post you get a little giddy. Thank you Kotaku for bringing attention to the world of the Demoscene. It really is the place where a lot of indie ideas are expressed and future gaming companies are born.

Best Soundtrack Nominee

 

 

The Demo scene is truly where my musicality came from. To have my music Nominated for Best Soundtrack in a demo is possibly one of the most humbling experiences – it’s awesome!. It was quite an accident that I was considered to score this demo but I am so glad it happened. I have been a BIG fan of CNCD & Fairlight and I thank them for allowing me to remix my track All falls down for this one. Thank you to Scene.org for your support as well.

 

If you love reading about process then you should stop and look at this page. Smaash has done a wonderful job about the challenges in coding a demo like this.

Real-time video clip for song “All falls down”

 

Some of you might know the history of where “hunz” came from. For those that don’t Hunz was my handle for writing music in the demo scene. The demoscene is a computer art subculture that specializes in producing demos, which are non-interactive audio-visual presentations that run in real-time on a computer. The main goal of a demo is to show off programming, artistic, and musical skills. (wiki).

 

I was involed with serveral demo groups, growing up, that put out a few real-time demos but I’ve never had my music used in a demo being presenting at a party. That is until now. Smash approached me about a week ago to see if he could use my music in a demo he was preparing to enter into Assembly 2010. So I did a remixed version of “All falls down” that helped give a better sense of matching the visual aesthetic.

 

Why is this amazing? Well this runs in real-time on your pc. Think of it as a video game that pushes your machine past the point of fuctioning. It does require Windows and DX9 and a nvidia g260 or better and you can download the file here (80megs). Then extract the contents and run the demo at your screen res to really enjoy the visual wonder of it all.

 

A very big thank you too Carillon & Cyberaid, Fairlight, Smash, Dstop and Louie500. Thank you for putting in the long hours to put this together. I feel like I got the easy part.

 

I am amazed and I thank you again.

 

Also watch out for my soon to be announced chip tune album “7bit hero”. So soon. click here
