SID

MOS Technology 6581/8580 SID (Sound Interface Device) is the built-in soundchip in the good old Commodore 64. On this page you can find some tunes I've composed for it.

The tunes can be downloaded either as MP3s, in PlaySID format or as Commodore 64 executables. The MP3s have been recorded using HardSID so they should sound as close to the real thing as possible. Although with a somewhat inaccurate emulation of the SID, the PlaySID (.sid) versions of these tunes can be replayed on Windows using SIDPlay2. The preferred SID version is stated with each tune.

Martinology .sid .prg .mp3
4th in the C64 music competition at Assembly'99. A tribute to the legend Martin Galway. I tried to use similar sounds to his and tried to imitate the overall style of his tunes but it didn't come out as good as I had hoped.

Modulation .sid .prg .mp3
3rd in the music competition at Zoo'97. A tribute to Scavenger/Synergy, probably the best composer on the Atari ST. The tune has a similar chord progression to Scavenger's tune Pajaro and a similar motif to the one in his tune used in the TCC93 Invitation Intro.
