← Back to all memories


Are you keeping up with the Commodore? (cos the Commodore is keeping up with you)

Perhaps not a memory, but a second coming – I grew up on Commodore64 games in the mid to late 1980s and was mesmerised by the sound capabilities at the time (consequently began recording music in the mid 90s with the Commodore Amiga series of computers). Jump forward thirty years and now I am playing full music gigs with purely Commodore64 equipment (there is still a healthy music scene based around the MOS SID chip that was the music powerhouse in all Commodore 64s). Next year the small label I run is releasing a hardware cartridge for the Commodore64 that features generative visuals and an album’s worth of original music .. still life in the beige box yet!
