Resolution We finally decide to act We fight We’re free Initially written for a planned video clip and with its story in mind. Electronic: atmospheric, breakbeat, dub step. […]

A Fresh Start

Everything’s fine… …until we realize that it isn’t. We decide to do something… …until it is. Originally written for a video with its story in mind. A bit of a precursor to Confronting Our Sins which is the “official” and definitve interpretation of that video concept. It is much more reminiscent of my late 90’s/early […]

Game of Thrones Theme (Gray Gameboy Step Mix)

Watching a video posted on Kotaku, I thought that the chiptune version of the Game of Thrones Theme (originally composed by Ramin Djawadi) that was playing in the background was pretty cool. So I decided to build my own one…and expand on it a little. This is the result of a night of little sleep […]

A World That Could Have Been

A first second third draft render of a little song that I actually built in a few hours to try out basic song structure (ABABCB). Only pseudo-realistic sounding classical instruments (see below), I was going for a symphonic sound. To my ears, it sounds as if it belongs in a movie or a game. Purely […]

n.e.x.x.y.z.

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] Again, a little experimentation with Renoise. This time influenced by a bit of Dubstep, it is another of those tracks that might or might not get a little bit of polishing 😉 I did not know what to do with the hook, so I just decided to spell […]

A Cold Day In January

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] Since I currently have quite a nasty cold I was a bit bored. But then I thought “Hey, you bought Renoise a while ago, so you might as well have a go.” Yeah. I talk to myself a lot when I’m bored. Don’t ask. I only worked on […]

Retro to the Fourth

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] A weird, little, very retro tune. Single gray old Nintendo Gameboy Classic, as always. This tune was played first live at the Pratersauna. Naive retro melody, retro beats, retro bass, retro equipment.

The Chase (from Vienna to Olbia)

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] Written partly in the brand new Rudolf Bednar park right across the street and partly on the beach in Baia Sardegna, this is a breaky, kinda hard, but not very hard track. First performed at Elektroland at Elektro Gönner.

Battle Royale (Telekinetic Island)

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] A psychedelic, trancy, Goa-styled hard track…as always, single, gray gameboy running at full volume! Definitely a must-listen for people who enjoy hard minimalist stuff. This track premiered at the final party of a Demo-convention at MuQua Vienna in the Wirr. People definitely seemed to enjoy it…drunk audiences are […]

Vangelis – Blade Runner Theme (nexxyz Mix)

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] A very atmospheric Dream Trance track, based on the theme from the 1982 movie Blade Runner. It won me a compo back in the day.
