Welcome to my square, this is Stage 7 speaking. I hope you will spend a nice time here and enjoy my little tunes (that is what all of this is about). From the 8-bit, lo-fi sound of a Game Boy, to the most clean sound of a modern computer, any electronic style could go here.
Sit down, relax... and listen.
It has been a long time since I started playing keys and touching buttons, but not so many years since I began on composing with so-called trackers. I made a few tunes just for fun and then tried with MIDI, which got many of my time. I'm still interested in MIDI, but don't compose anything since a lot time ago.
Some day, a thing called "Hammerhead Rhythm Station" appeared, and found that the author also had created a sequencer called "Tuareg 2". It was simple, but it could produce lots of sounds. But it was incomplete for me.
Dunno how, Fruityloops popped into my screen. Now it's the software I use the most. I've written so many songs with it, and it's not hard to use (you can always see where is that thing you want to use). Finished works are:
- A Mike Oldfield tribute called "Tubular Bells Project", that is, the whole of Tubular Bells covered, and some extra bonus tracks.
- "A Year Later", or a compilation of tunes and remixes I've made with FL Studio/Fruityloops and Zero-X Beat Slicer throught Nov 2003-Oct 2004
- Some so-called singles, not edited yet in a portable way.
Not seriously... Just a few jam sessions I've played in, with Mike Oldfield fans, not much.
Variety here. Mike Oldfield, Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, múm, Daft Punk, Röyksopp, KB from Farbrausch, so many Mod and Chiptune artists (as Karawapo being a great reference), some Britpop people...
FL Studio/Fruityloops, Zero-X Beat Slicer, Hammerhead Rhythm Station, Modplug, Mad Tracker... About hardware, Casio CTK and MicroKorg is what I use the most.
And a Game Boy too!
