Chuggawagga

June 5, 2017  |  Music

This is a track I did a couple of years ago. It’s a bit old school’ish progressive chugger, slow, deep and dark. Doesn’t really fit with the styles of the other tracks for the album I’m working on, but still decent enough I think. Hope you like it.

The Furulund party and Another Perfect Demo

May 28, 2017  |  Commodore 64, Demo

Exactly 30 years ago on this day, me and my friends in the C64 demo group XAKK went to a so called copyparty in Furulund, Sweden. Here we met with other people that was part of the early Commodore 64 and Amiga scene in Sweden. Three demos was released on this party. One of it was the first if a long series of more advanced demos for Commodore 64 from my team in XAKK. This demo was called Another Perfect Demo. My friend Jolly Cracker did the assembler coding and I made music and graphics.

You can read more about it in my story about XAKK that I wrote in the 90s when I still remembered some details about my years hacking the Commodore 64. It’s hard to believe 30 years have passed. My generation of computer geeks are nearing our 50s and some have already passed.

RIP Mr Bacher/CombatManiac who went to the next level a couple of weeks ago.

 

I’m still alive

I noticed I haven’t been posting here in a while so here’s a little update to what I’ve been up to lately.

It is lit up like a christmas tree and not smoking. Time to trim this baby. #ttsh #arp2600 #diysynth #modularsynth

First of all, I have spent A TON of my spare time on building that Arp 2600 clone called the TTSH, or Two Thousand Six Hundred. It’s a massive build and I’m almost finished with it now. I will post some more pictures and sounds when the case and everything is done.

Also I switched jobs recently, so I’m now I’m back working with what you call User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) Design for E-commerce. I have been there for four months now, so a lot of my creative energy have been directed towards that. I’m a senior in this area and it’s something I have been working professional with for over 20 years now.

The next album is still in the works. Gotta finish it now, I know..
