Here are all my 8-bit and Chiptune Albums.

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 and 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 and 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 around in case you'll stumble upon something you like.

Listen to my albums on Spotify

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 fascinated with the genre ever since I was a kid, and ever since the project started, my goal has been to make my music as freely 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 (with the exception of comissioned projects where an exclusive license was chosen), 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, preferably with a link back to this website. And, though not a requirement, I really enjoy when people let me know how my music is used. Tell me, and I will share it on Facebook and Twitter, and if you want I'll put a link to your project on my Links-page, giving you some extra publicity.

Once again, enjoy your stay! I hope you will find something you like, and do let me know if you have any questions; I'll be happy to help! :)

Latest addition: The chiptune album "Friendship Adventure".

2020-10-13 - Crystal Caves HD Original Soundtrack!

Hi everyone! I know I have kept quiet for what seems like forever, but that does not mean that I haven't been busy working on new music! :) I have had the honor to compose the original soundtrack for the upcoming Crystal Caves HD. The game will launch on Steam and GOG on Ocrober 15th, and I have gotten permission from Apogee to release the soundtrack on Bandcamp and Youtube initially, with the hope to release it to more services eventually.

It will not be a Creative Commons release as an exclusive license was chosen for the project, and while I prefer to do Creative Commons-based comissions, I feel that this was an opportunity I could not pass up, so apologies to everyone whe would have liked that. You can however rest assured that all of my own projects will always be Licensed under creative commons. That will never change.

You can enjoy the trailer for the game here while whaiting for the release and sountrack. More updates soon!

2018-01-05 - Yet another site release!

Well hello there! I'm starting the year off with a new site release. I made an NES-cover of the "game over" music from the Commodore 64-version of Thunder Blade.

Hello everyone! After some silence it's finally time for an update. I'm still working on my next album that hopefully will be released early-ish 2019, so stay tuned for that.

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 gives you the 5 latest news posts.

Music

Is where you listen to and download my free 8-bit and chiptune 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 download torrents, which are also hosted on the site. I used to host them on The Pirate Bay, but due to constant DDOS-attacks I feel that the site is no longer reliable, so I'm hosting the torrents directly on this site instead.

Do note however that in the case of comissioned projects where an exclusive license was chosen, the music does not come with a Creative Commons-license, and downloads are not available, but don't worry, in such cases it will be clearly stated on the album page to avoid any confusion.

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, and the different effects you can use to modify the sound. I also talk a bit about different software you can use to make the music. You can also find my Spotify playlist "8-bit, chiptunes, bitpop here, which features a wide variety of styles that fit within the genre. If you feel like something should be added to the guide, drop me a message! :)
