 New Commodore 64 album! 00:55
Our new chipmusic concept album is a collection of ambient music crafted to help facilitate relaxation. Over 1 hour of mind defragmenting tones for you to enjoy! Each sound is hand crafted from the Commodore 64 personal computer’s SID sound chip. Portions of the album were co-written by a computer as many of the notes were set to be selected by the CPU at random! All tones have been digitally processed for maximum smoothness and optimum ambiance. Relax and Enjoy!

See what some original 1980’s Commodore 64/128 SID Composer legends have to say about the album:

"It’s beautiful... it’s a work of art... genius." - Martin Galway Original C64 Music Composer

"Top notch! I both enjoy and respect it." - David Warhol Original C64 Music Composer

"Very nice and soothing lengthy 8-bit soundscapes... nice for digital meditation! Nice work ! " - Jeroen Tel Original C64 Music Composer

"So ambient my hips fell off" - Ben Daglish Original C64 Music Composer
