Astaroth rewrite

I have completed a Skale rewrite of the first level music from the Amiga game 'Astaroth, the Angel of Death'. However, I have not actually played the game, instead I heard this music from 'Headquarters', a Mechforce unit manager program which borrowed this tune. I believe at one point I heard a demo as well that used this specific tune, and the original tune can even be found on Aminet.

I intend to submit this one to Overclocked Remix. Their naming policy states that I cannot name my submission after the game, and since this tune reminds me more of futuristic Battletech I've decided to name it "Star League".

You can check out the MP3 version here, or if you want to see it you can download the source SKM here. (See blog description for information about SKM files.)

This is just a taste of what is to come, I'm on the verge of two big project releases sometime this year (I hope). I want each project to have somewhere around an hour's worth of music each before I release them.

Enjoy the music, TTFN!

Beyond Dreams (remix)

In 2009, I did a remix of one of my all-time favorite modules by Sidewinder from way back when in 1994. You can download the MP3 here or check out the SKM if you want.

At the time, no piece of music I had previously done received anywhere near as much polishing as this one; I tried to make it sound as perfect as I could.

New Blog

*tap tap* Is this thing on? Oh uh...

I've decided to move from a static web page to a blog. My hope is that it will make adding content and comments possible. I don't think it will give me any information about what is getting downloaded though (if anything). I kind of liked my old page layout a bit better, but this blog thing is such a mess of div this will have to do for now.

I'll be posting what little progress I make here, and sometimes a little surprise too I suppose. But first, I'll need to make posts and transfer over my old releases from the original site.
