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 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, preferably with a link back to this website. 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 "Friendship Adventure".

Another new album! It hasn't even been a month since I released "Dunes at Night", and now It's allready time for a new Album. This time, it's "Friendship Adventure", which is my part of the soundtrack to the game with the same name, by Jonny Smeby. The tracks are inspired by the Game Boy Camera Soundtrack you can find the album here. As usual, you can download the album from the site, through a torrent, download individual tunes, as well as find the album on Spotify, Bandcamp, Jamendo, as well as on all the services CD Baby offers. Happy listening!

In other news, Google has decided that channels with less than 1000 subscribers are no longer eligeable for monetization. This affects me, since I don't yet have 1000 subscribers. So... If you'd like to help, please consider subscribing to my channel. You can find my Youtube Channel here. That's all for now. Take care, and check back for more updates soon! :)

New album! I have released a new 8-bit album. It's been over two years since my last one, but now "Dunes at Night" is finally done. It has 14 brand new tracks made in Famitracker. It's a bit more experimental than my other ones and I have tried to go beyond my usual sound. I hope you'll like it, you can find the album here. As usual, you can download the album from the site, through a torrent, download individual tunes, as well as find the album on Spotify, Bandcamp, Jamendo, as well as on all the services CD Baby offers. Happy listening!

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.

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 listen to and 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, and the different effects you can use to modify the sound. 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 a little 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

This is where you will find various options to get in touch with me.

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!
