Albums and EPs


All my full-length releases and EPs I have created over the years.



Floppies and Lo-Bit


CDs, MCs, vinyl... floppy disks? Yes, it's true! By using lossy wave compression in conjunction with low bitrates, one can squeeze a surprising amount of music on a standard 3.5 inch floppy. In effect, the sound will often gain a special warm, lush quality, and the compression artefacts will take on a life of their own.



Music Disks


Music disks are small stand-alone executables which synthesize music in realtime, as opposed to WAVs or MP3s, which contain recordings of music. They are meant to be run on specific target hardware, such as home computers or video game consoles. Music disks were a common way of distributing computer music before the advent of MP3s and other streaming formats, and still have a sizeable following within the demoscene and among home computer enthousiasts.

You will need the appropriate hardware, or an emulator to listen to these releases. I recommend using FUSE to emulate the ZX Spectrum, EightyOne (Windows) resp. sz81 (*nix) to emulate the ZX81, and tilem2 (Windows | *nix) to emulate TI calculators.



Contributions


Over the years, I've made a sizeable number of contributions to compilations, and have had guest appearances on various albums. Here's a (probably incomplete) list of those.



Doppelplusungut


Each December, I meet up with DJ dat zekt. For one month, we lock ourselves in some basement with a huge pile of obscure equipment, and record a new Doppelplusungut album. The music, though generally made with a Punk attitude, is very diverse, as we try to explore many different genres, from drone/ambient to death metal. Another important part of the Doppelplusungut experience is an intergalactic, hyper-dimensional radio play epos, set against a post-apocalyptic backdrop in which planet Earth has been completely destroyed by an accident at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.

These CDs are not available online. You can only get them through personal contact, or at the Yaya23 record store in Berlin.
