Hi there! I am Ozzed. I'm going to assume you're here for any or all of these reasons:
1: You want to listen to or download my free 8-bit/chiptune music
2: You want free 8-bit music for your videos, games, or other projects
3: You want to learn how to make 8-bit/chiptune music.
If any or all of the above is correct, you've come to the right place. And if not... Well... You should stay and have a look aroud in case you'll stumble upon something you like.
So who am I and why should you care?
I am a chiptune composer from Sweden. I enjoy making 8-bit music and sharing it with everyone for free. I've been facinated with the genre ever since I was a kid and ever since since the project started, my goal has been to make my music as available as possible, for both new audiences and people who already know and love the genre.
You should care because the music is licensed under
Creative Commons, which means that you are free to use, distribute and modify the music however you
see fit, as long as I am credited as the composer. And, though not a requirement, I really enjoy
when people let me know how they use my music. Tell me, and I will share it on Facebook and
Twitter, giving your creation some extra exposure
So, again. Enjoy your stay! And do let me know if you have any questions; I'll be happy to help! :)
Latest addition: The chiptune album "8-Bit Run 'n Pun"
Hi friends! It's been a while since I wrote anything, but I've been quite busy. I'm working on songs for my next album, and I also have a few upcoming commisioned projects, which I'll tell you more about when they're ready to go live. I recently got interviewed by Sarah on the youtube channel Thumb Clicks. We talked about creative expression, staying true to your art, my sources of inspiration, why I think it's wrong to demand payment for something you want to call art, and other things. You can find the video here.
Jingle Bells! ...Is a Christmas song. I made an NES version of it. You can find it among my Site Releases Merry Christmas and a happy new year from all of me to all of you! :)
So... It's been a while since i wrote an update here, even though quite a lot has been going on. First of all, my site is now mobile friendly, so it'll look a lot better on your phone and tabled. Second, the "Music" page now has all by albums directly on it, so you can find what you're looking for a bit quicker than before. My site has also gotten a slight graphic update with a smoother look, thank you Schoq. I'm also working on my next album. So far, I've decided that I will have more songs on it than I usually put in an album, and I'm probably not going with any specific theme, as my styles and inspiration is all over the place these days. I'm hoping to release it this fall or winter. That's all for now. Take care :)
Hi people! I am very well aware that this is long overdue but... Sometimes life happens and stuff gets delayed. As many of you know, my album 8-Bit Run 'n Pun was released on November 13th, 2015. But I haven't had time or energy to make the proper album page for it until now. Probably not a big deal as most people use Spotify or other streaming services to consume music nowadays, but for those of you who do want MP3's NSF-packs and info about the specific tunes, you now have that option. You can also download the album directly from the site or through a torrent. Whatever you chose, have fun! I hope you like 8-Bit Run 'n Pun!
Hello everyone! As promised, I released a new song today. I'd say it's one of my more experimental one so far, in some aspects, while in other regards, it's very typical "Ozzed-style". This means that there's now no less than 13 tracks on the upcoming Album, and I'm starting to feel like it's nearing completion. Very exciting times! :)
If you would like to listen to my music without downloading anything from this site, my music is available on most major music services such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Jamendo, Last-FM and so forth, links are available at the bottom of this page, and if you have Spotify, just use the playlist at the top and listen away! :)
I live primarily on this website, but I also live on these pages:
My website currently has the following to offer:
Is the page you are looking at right now. This mainly serves as a descriptive table of contents for the rest of the site as well as some general information about why I'm doing this. You'll also find some links to other places on the web where you can find my music. It also serves the 5 latest news posts.
Is where you download my free 8-bit music, both Albums and "Site Exclusive" releases are available, and all content where I am the original composer is licensed under Creative Commons. Everything can be downloaded directly from the site, And for the albums you also have the option to grab torrents, which are also hosted on the site, as we live in a world where governments might bend to the pressure of the entertainment industry at any time.
Is where you find the latest updates from me regarding what's going on with my music and the site in general. This is in no way a "blog" or anything like it, but merely a place where you can get the latest news.
If you want to make your own 8-bit music or chiptune music, you want to check this out. I believe that knowledge should be shared so I wrote down some general guidelines on making 8-bit music, chiptunes, and so forth. The guide mainly focuses on the Nintendo Entertainment System, as that is where I have most of my experience, but there's also information about the Commodore 64, Amiga 500 and the Nintendo Game Boy, as well as a basic guide to the different waveforms typically used when making 8-bit music. If you feel like something should be added to the guide, drop me a message! :)
My music is and always will be completely free, but if you would like to give me something for my work, this is where you want to go.
Here you can find useful software for making your own 8-bit music, as well as links to similar artists and other projects.
Contains information about how to contact me (in other words, this is where you find my E-mail address).
I hope this information has been helpful. Feel free to contact me if I missed anything or if you have suggestions on how to improve the site. Rock on!
