You found Ozzed.net!

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 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. 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"

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! :)

Linux. Yes.. I have switched to a different hosting company. As a consequence of this I can no longer host my site on an IIS-server, so Apache it is, which means that Spamburp and the Shoutbox, which are both written in ASP, needed to be replaced. I have chosen Disqus for this as it's a robust solution and there's no point in reinventing the wheel. This also means that you can write messages on any site you like, rather than having to go to a dedicated one. In other news I should have a new song ready soon, so stay tunes :)

Al my albums are now available on Spotify, Deezer and so on. The services are too many to list, but it's all the music sites you can be on if you have CD-Baby as an aggregator, so if you're curious you can look it up. I'm Very excited to have my music available where people can actually easily access it :)

My website currently has the following to offer:

Home

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.

Music

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.

News

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.

Making 8-bit music

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! :)

Donations

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.

Links

Here you can find useful software for making your own 8-bit music, as well as links to similar artists and other projects.

Contact

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!
