New EP: Per Aspera Ad Astra

OK, here we go. It has been some time since I released a serious piece of music. This is serious. 8 tracks, somewhere in between of electronic and chipmusic. The topic of it is >>SPACE< < and I hope that I met it with all tracks.

Funny it is also the first time for many years that I applied at a label to release it. And like it was with "Tweakological Techniques" I already expected to have a looooooooong search. I mean, eventually I gave up and released "Tweakological Techniques" via Bandcamp. But I wanted to have this new release on a proper label. I applied at exactly one label. PXL-BOT. And they accepted me eben though the thing wasn't even fully done at that moment. Anyways, here you go: DOWNLOADERONI

MODPlug & Play

I just love the new version. You must know I only use MODPlug Tracker to rip my modules from XM to WAV. Ever since I installed the new version 1.19 I just love this program. It does so much great stuff, the old version I had (version 1.17) didn‘t do. For example it now has the function to rip modules not only track by track but also instrument by instrument. Awesome. Now I can produce material for remixes much easier!!!

Something I noticed by accident was, that MPT also puts in markers into the ripped wavefiles at each beginning of a pattern. There surely is a point to that… I guess it is good for live-performances when you want to jump around in your arrangement. Modern audio-programs like Ableton Live or so can do such stuff. There’s no further need for me cause I rip the stuff to WAV and load it up the internet.

I don‘t know how MPT works as a tracker, cause I still use MadTracker 2 for tracking. But some years ago I heard that Linde was using MPT. Maybe he also switched to MilkyTracker, I dunno… Anyways, great program at least to rip stuff from any module-format to WAV!!!!

You can find more information on the OpenMPT website MODPLUGERONI!!!

New Album – Chasing Girls And Making Friends

I had the two weeks around the Easter holidays off. So I spent my time with some useful things. Tidying up my apartment, cleaning my bathroom (no comment on that) and of course making music. It has been a loooooooooong time, that I didn‘t make any new stuff and I really enjoyed it just to sit in front of MadTracker and put in note after note into my computer. Well, it all started on Easter Sunday and after that I was in a rush. The following days I produced 5 songs. And I didn‘t want to make the same mistake I did with „Tweakological Techniues“ so I released it when I had enough material. And that was on Saturday. Of course I not only took the 5 tracks but also 3 older tracks I made many months ago and that totally fit the sound-concept of the album: 8-bit-percs, chip-melodies and crazy voice samples.

But I also had some problems with some tracks: first of all „We Like To Bounce It“. When I finished my version of the song it was some sort of boring. I sent what I had so far to FoX who also played the guitars on „Alter Ego“. He sent his overworked version back to me in less than 12 hours. You can listen to the result in the lower app in this blogpost.

Well I am very proud of this album. It was great fun producing it. With the album you will get a text file with more information. And again I uploaded it to Bandcamp. I just love this platform. It is perfect for musicians who want to promote themselves. But enough Jibber-Jabba, here’s the album:

More Releases on Bandcamp

I just uploaded two albums to Bandcamp. First of all the latest MM vs. FoX album „Working Title“. Unfortunatly with two tracks less than in the original release. The remix of „Running Robot“ by Darklime will be released physically later this year. And I couldn‘t find the master WAV of „Working Title“ this morning. Maybe I will add this song, when I have :)

Then a small but nevertheless great EP we released in 2009 as far as I remember. „ektodermis/ektodermis“ originally was released on Pixelmod Records, but I wanted to give it a better platform. you know this whole Pixelmod project didn‘t turn out the way I expected. Well… anyways, ENJOY!!

Tweakological Techniques

I just can‘t believe that I got rid of this. It is out, finally. I wanted to test Bandcamp and what shall I say? I don‘t understood what I did but it works. You can reach my stuff there via http://themmproject.bandcamp.com/. I‘m going to release more stuff there soon, for example the last MM vs. FoX release „Working Title“! But here it is *drumroll* Tweakological Techniques!! Listen!

New Gorillaz Video „Doncamatic“

I just love it. Even though I was surprised that the singer was actually a man…

New Song at 8BC „Alter Ego“

Some months ago, Naomi Sample and his band started a remix-project. I wanted to remix one of their songs and even did a short melody line… but eventually forgot about that whole thing. Some time later, it must have been this summer, I found that melody line among my unfinished tracks and started working with it. I made a simple bassline, some real basic beats and some synths but everything felt incomplete and naked. So I asked a friend of mine (FoX) to add some guitar sound to it. I was worried because the song already was far away from every chipmusic standard I set up for myself so far. It turned out to be very electronically even though the kickdrum and the bassline were chip. But I thought, why not make some more song in a less „chippy“ way??? So here it is, „Alter Ego“. Have fun.
