Goto80s C64-Chiptunes-Cartridge-Album


Das neue Album von Chiptunes-Mucker und C64-Künstler Goto80 kommt als Cartridge für den Brotkasten. Die komplette Musik und Visuals und Remix-Software wiegt grade mal 64 Kilobyte. Hier als Download auf Bandcamp, das Cartridge ist leider schon ausverkauft.

chip1DUBCRT is a music album, interactive light synthesizer and remix gadget released as a Commodore 64 cartridge. With music and visuals from some of the most prolific experimentalists of the 8-bit scenes, DUBCRT taps into 1960s modernist forms, 1970s dub, 2000s glitch aesthetics, and 2020s sustainable computing. DUBCRT features:

• Eight songs ranging from ambient to IDM and drum n’ bass
• Visualisers that react to the music, and that are user-controllable
• A secret remix module that allows you to re-interpret all the music on the cartridge

All of this uses only 64 kilobytes – equivalent to 1.5 seconds of MP3-audio. This is possible thanks to clever use of resources, and by making all the graphics in PETSCII, the colourful and quirky ASCII-variant of the Commodore 64.
