Introduction

I started making music when I was 11, got my first keyboard in 1991 and bought my Korg N364 synthesizer in 1997. My evolution as a musician has closely followed the technology I've been using through the years. It started out with a few single-voice songs on a violin, moved onto the three-voice analog synth chip in the Commodore 64, then the four-voice sample-based sound chip in the Amiga. The low number of voices and poor sound quality limited my expressive power, so after moving on to my 64-voice Korg N364 I finally found what I needed to make music that even non-computer people would listen to.

Unfortunately, I haven't made any music for a very long time and I sold my Korg N364 years ago. One day or the other I'll hopefully find the time and interest to pick it up again.

MP3

In this section you'll find most of my latest songs in MP3 format. All were made using a software sequencer, a Korg N364 and a Soundblaster Live soundcard.

Futurama Title Latin Remix

I like Futurama so much that I just had to do a remix of its title song, latin style!

Evening Haze

Slow jazz for those blue mood moments.

Zero Impression

Melancholic synthetic fusion, nostalghia from the Commodore 64 days. Also available in AHX and Korg N264/N364 SNG formats.

Space Curve

Hardcore synthetic beats for the electronica bunch.

Lime Garden

Eurodancish track inspired by Robert Miles.

Protracker

Between 1993 and 1998 I was known as Daiz'l of Mystic on the Amiga. I was a Protracker module musician, Protracker being the program I used and module being its file format.

You can find most of my finished modules below. You need a module player to listen to them.

Commodore 64

Between 1991 and 1993 I was known as Shade of Flash Incorporated on the Commodore 64. I used several different programs to make my music, all with their own file format. What they all have in common is that they're all for the SID synthesizer chip found inside the Commodore 64 (hence a SID-emulating player is needed if you don't have a Commodore 64 - see below).

Most of my songs are featured in the High Voltage SID Collection, a very large and well-known SID song collection, but I also have them available here.

Shade's SIDs
38 of my songs. You can find player software here.
Shade's Music Collections
My two music collections released under Flash Incorporated label. Includes Commodore 64 binaries, so you need either a real Commodore 64 or an emulator to run them.

AHX

AHX (previously called THX) is a music composing program for the Amiga. It can be used to create Commodore 64 sounding music, and I've made two songs with it.

You can find an AHX player here.

Zero Impression
Released in the first issue of "Klub Diznee" by Abyss. Check the MP3 version above.
Mid Day Action
Released in "Psychol 13" by Appendix.
