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 tune "Introjuice".
New tune published! This time It's about pausing and reflecting upon the vastness of the iniverse. Obviously it's good to have pause music if you're playing a game. This makes it the 9th tune in the project. I'm getting a lot done lately :)
Hi! Sometimes things don't go as you'd hope, and it seems that currently the torrents on my website does not work. So you'll have to use direct download instead, but I've contacted my web host and they are working of fixing the issue. I'll let you know when things are running smoothly again.
I did however publush a new tune. It's the intro to 8-Bit Run 'n' pun, and it's called Introjuice!
Hello! Starting today, you will be able to get the torrents for my albums directly from my website. As many governments bend to the entertainment industry's demand to block torrent sites, though they contain perfectly legal content, such as mine, I feel like it is better to provide an on-site alternative for those of you who want my torrents but are unable to get them due to blocking of torrent sites. The torrents will still be available on The Pirate Bay and other torrent sites, and this does not mean that I agree with internet censorship. It's simply a way for me to provide more options for you, and assure access to my content in torrent-form, even if your government sucks.
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!
