"Music"
My music is like a road accident. It is atrocious, yet some sick people seem to be attracted to it.

There's not much more that needs to be said. Most of this stuff is done using a tracker (ModPlug, which is free).
I've acquired 4 (count them, four) dedicated fans, and several other people who say "hmm that's not awful". I am advised that they are not receiving care in the community.

If you're asking which one to download first, try Work In Progress or Every Waking Moment as everyone seems to say they're the best. Helpful and constructive criticism (like: "OMG you suck. Please stop doing this!") is always graciously received.

Requests for the original .IT, .S3M etc files
To my great surprise a few people have been asking about getting the music in it's original "tracked" form. I don't give it out, sorry. Here's my reasons:
  1. The file size is often larger than the MP3 version
  2. A lot of them use VST plugins that you might not have
  3. They're no good for learning tracking from. If you want to learn how to do it I suggest you go to www.modarchive.com and download some of the smaller tunes from there.
I'm prepared to offer up the samples though since they're mostly royalty free, if you want them then contact me. It'll probably involve you sending me a stamped envelope with your address on it and a blank CD, so I can burn them and send it back to you.

Dave of stairwaytohell.com liked my Bug Eyes and Galaforce tracks enough to give them some air-time on the stairwaytohell.com news page, and suggested I have a go at doing Spellbinder's music too. So here it is. Another one just for fun.

Spellbinder was a game that will ring a bell with anyone who's played Encarta's "Mind Maze". You guide your character around a castle solving puzzles and the like while the (eventually irritating) music drones on and on in the background. The music in-game is actually a cover of Midnight Summer Dream by The Stranglers, however I didn't know this until I'd finished the track and was poking around with a hex editor to find out who did the music for the game. Huge apologies to all Stranglers fans.

The guitar stuff in this is quite obviously not my own. One very short one-second sample and CoolEdit Pro 2 for some pitch-shifting and I have a quite funky guitar lead, of which I am reasonably proud. Drum lines are of course my own (I feel guilty using drumloops). From 3mins 31secs in, it clearly rocks.

Hmm. If I was going to show someone my music, this would not be the first track I'd exhibit. Similar to someone playing a synthesiser in a locked toilet while an unstoppable Tesco receipt machine runs rampant to a slightly irritating beepy noise. Yes, I'm always this proud of my work.

The bass is very, very loud in this one to the point of obliterating the rest of it. I've tried to filter it down a bit, but the result is bad quality. This track is only here because the remix of it (also here) was pretty bad, so I want to preserve the original.

A remix of my Stormrunner track. I hate this remix, and I don't much like the original. When I saved the remix, I "accidentally" destroyed the original, but an MP3 of it remains. That MP3 is also available here, for the fanatics :/

Woohoo! Encarta 98 provided me with three samples: a folk harp thing, some tribal bloke saying "tong gu tang go tug a ti gu bla bla" and some kind of ethnic twangy thing. How could I resist the urge to pull these elements together in a kind of low-tempo weirdness?!

This runs for 8 minutes.. probably making it the longest Zero Wing cover track ever created. This was put together on-and-off in just over 4 days. My first track entirely done in ModPlug Tracker, and my first opportunity to use a MIDI keyboard (which probably explains the short creation-time).
The original theme is composed by Tatsuya Uemura. Zero Wing (a sidescrolling shoot-em-up game by Toaplan) is famed for the ingenious redefinition of the laws of the English language that is demonstrated in it's introduction sequence on the Genesis/Megadrive version of the game. Download Gens and search for a Zero Wing ROM to discover the horror for yourself, and maybe better understand this cover.

Can't think why I never released this in the past. Anyway, it's here now. Loud and punishing. Thanks fly to Andrew Robinson for the guitar work!
