I took this pseudonym to write music for the tracker community. When I say ‘community’, I mean that while a tracker community existed, I wasn’t really in it.
Tracker software such as ScreamTracker and FastTracker (both of which I used) allowed you to make comparatively low fidelity music using home computers. Mainly it was used for video game music, but there were a significant number of creators out there sharing music. I stumbled upon it through a friend who was sick of me complaining that I couldn’t afford a synthesizer and this is how my musical journey began. More or less.
The ‘albums’ shown below were never released in any conventional way — in fact none of my music was. But you will find that the quality of the recordings below are indicative of the technology available to me and not necessarily reflective of my original vision.
And as was the style at the time, elements were sampled, lifted and pilfered in order to create these tracks. With love of course.
This is not an album, so much as a collection of tracker scene releases. All tracks done within this time frame were composed in ScreamTracker 3.21
This is the first intentionally created ‘album’, and all material here was created using FastTracker 2.
Second collection of all new FT2 material.
