The Music

Let's start with the most important part. Here are all my chiptune albums, as well as site releases.

History

When I turned 7, I got a Nintendo Game Boy and instantly fell in love with the music. For me, it is a dear part of my childhood that I will always remember fondly.

I was fascinated and captivated by the fact that the music was so simple, yet could be so complex. I also played the Commodore 64 and the NES over at friends' houses and the same was true for the music on those systems.

It took many years before I started finding software that could do what I wanted it to, but I eventually stumbled upon Jescola Buzz in 2001 which was simple to use, yet powerful enough to do what I wanted. With thar, some of the tunes on "Lesser than Three" were born.

I then went on to find Milkytracker, and was finally making "real" tracker music. This was just amazing because I could make song that sounded like the "cracktro" music I had come to love, since it also resembled the bleeps and bloops of the consoles I grew up with.

By this time, I had started studying network technology and web design and I thought "Why not make a website and put my music out there in case other people will enjoy it?" And the result was ozzed.net.

After that, I found Famitracker and I was in heaven. I was really happy to finally be able to make tunes that were actual NES-music, playable on a real NES. This is the software I still use today when making my music.

Genres and Styles

The genres, or rather, the "sound" for my music is chiptune or "8-bit music". As for styles, I grew up with games from Rare and Konami and really liked that music, so there's influences from the Game Boy and NES-games from those companies, as well as other big games of the time.

I also like blues and rock 'n roll so there's influences from those genres as well, for most of the music.

In terms of mood I have booth happy, upbeat, epic, and sad sounding songs. It's a little bit of everything, and something for everyone, so you'll have to listen and see for yourself. :)
