The kids have “no” buttons, much like the idol in Idol. When 50% of the audience has pressed no, the lights go out, and the the artist performing iss out of the show.

GlitchDS Sample Pack: The Sounds of Mortima T #1 (Universe)

May 28th, 2008

Here’s my first sample pack for the really cool up and coming DS homebrew music/sound app DSGlitch. It’s a sequencer and sound glitcher based on John Conway’s Game of Life where each position in the grid can trigger one out of six samples.

The sound is kind of random and I like it so much that I’m planning to make a concept album with sounds processed by the program, with the corresponding sample pack to go with it. (I’m making some tight ass samples for it!)
Until then, I’m going to release a number of sample packs based on the incredibly jazzy and moody sounds of Mortimer Twang’s Amiga mods. More packs coming when I feel like it!

Watcha waiting for?
First grab a copy of GlitchDS for your Nintendo DS
Then grab the Mortima T samplepack

Update: To the best of my knowledge, here’s the first track using samples from the pack: Just For Her by Litebritedeath


           The Sounds of Mortima Tee
  what: sample pack
  for: glitchds
  samples from: universe.mod (#1)

 this is the first in a series of sample packs
based on the ameega mods by sweet fatha mortima
twang. The sounds were exported as played in the
mod, sliced when necessary and given minor edits

this first pack contains samples from universe,
a moody downtempo mod with a nice vintage sound
consisting of beautiful strings and a bass line
  made with a double bass sample

these packs will be made in respect to mortima's
 moody, jazzy, trippy, groovy sounds. to listen
 to the original mods, pay this website a visit

          original sounds by mortimer
            twang aka lukas nystrand
             compiled by: nitro2k01

Michael Jackson and the music in Sonic The Hedgehog

May 11th, 2008

A guy I talked to at Microdisko told me about how he was in love with the sound from YM2612 FM chip in the Genesis/Megadrive, although most game music composers at the time didn’t know how to fully utilize the chip’s full potential. He (as well as I) love the music of Sonic 2 and beyond.
And today I stumbled upon the awesome news that some of the tracks in Sonic 2 might have been composed by Michael Jackson. Yes, that Michael Jackson, the king of pop. Apparently he composed music for the games, but then it was removed when the pedophilia accusations started to pop up. This video show a compelling argument, supported by statements by former Sega employees, that the music in fact remained in the final games.
Unfortunately, they won’t let me embed it. :/
So here’s a link:

Instead, I’ll put a video of Streets of Rage here, which my newfound friend told me about for the music. It’s nothing actually nothing short of rave music, and I love it.

More Broccoli!

May 6th, 2008

Back once again with the IRC quotes. Do watch the video!
On a related note, I think a part of the Bee March melody resembles the classic Super Mario melody. Ok, it’s only a couple of notes, but I’m still wondering if that might be where Koji Kondo got his original spark of inspiration from… We might never know!

ADLib Tracker

March 4th, 2008

More Youtube! This time it’s my Pentium 100 MHz laptop playing som AD lib tunes with ADLib Tracker ][. The tunes are Chipmunk, Comic Bakery and Super Mario Land Theme, from the collection of modules that comes with the program. Someday I'll try to sit down and track something myself. And some other day maybe I will tell the story of how I managed to use HDD in the laptop, where the CD used to be. Without the consent of the BIOS.
