You found Ozzed.net!

Hi there. I am Ozzed. I am a musician who composes tunes that resembles those found in old games. (Nintendo 8-bit, Amiga, C64, Game Boy, and so forth) The genre is commonly known as "8-Bit music", but expressions such as "Chip-music", "bitpop" and "Retro" are also commonly used. I have been a fan of the genre since I was a kid, And started making my own music back in 2001.
My biggest reason for starting this project back in late 2008 was, and still is, that I want to share my music with the masses, and hopefully it encourages more people to explore the wonderful world of 8-bit music.

All my works, except the ones where I am not the original composer, are licensed under Creative Commons. For exact details regarding the licensing, click the "Creative Commons" icon right below the menu.

Latest addition: The album "Nackskott".

Hi there! It's been an intense few days since the release of my new album Nackskott. Aside from publishing it here on the website, I also made it available at Jamendo and Last.fm. So you can listen to them "off-site" if you prefer to do that :)
In other news, the game Poros, which features my music was selected to be in the first argentinian game bundle which of course is awesome!
The tunes at last-fm currently won't load, but I hope it's a temporary problem. Other than that, all is well. Cheers!

Hello! I have released a new album today, out of nowhere! It's basically a bunch of tunes I had laying around that were never gonna get used for anything, so I figured I might as well release the album, so that whoever wants to use the tunes from it can. I mean, tunes that are done, but not heard by anyone are pretty useless, and no one has any use for useless stuff, right? So enjoy. :)
And yes I'm still working on 8-bit run 'n' pun. Don't worry. Cheers!

Hi! It has been a long time since I wrote, or did anything substantial regarding my music, or the websie. But now I'm doing both. I have released two songs within the same week, and the website is getting a minor overhaul to better accomodate mobile devices, as well as make it easier for me to be active and actually do things here. I have removed the Swedish section of the site. Very few people visited the Swedish pages, and it takes forever to update everything twice, plus there's Google translate and whatnot these days, so there was no point in keeping it. I hope to release more stuff soon. Stay tuned!

If you would like samples of my music without downloading anything, go to my Myspace, Jamendo or Last.fm pages through the links on this page!!

I live primarily on this website, but I also live on these pages:
