Esperenza '20th anniversary'

Esperenza ’20th anniversary’

Here is a new part of the Cyborg Jeff anthology. There was 20 years ago, i’ve opened my ears to a new musical universe. I worked on the future album Esperenza that should be finished in early 1998. At that time lot of things have changed in my life. First i left my familly to learn to Louvain La Neuve.

Far from my roots, i met new friends like Didier Rombauts, Damien Bruindonckx, Antoine Reekmans and François Janssen. We created the X-Perimental Association from LLN and share our differents musical epxerience that were new influence on my way of create musics. I was also inspirated by Luc Baiwir live performance and the new Future Music Magasine arrived here in Belgium.

This album was still written with the MS-DOS software : Impulse Tracker running on my brand new PC Cyrix 166mhz with 16 mo of RAM , a new Tascam Porta Studio II and a cheap microphone. pourri.

Finally, the song Esperenza was not included on that album. Composed in january 1998, it was not known by friend Valentin Boigelot that have realised the first original version of this album for my 20th birthday. There was also not on this new re-edition. But you will discover here stereo remastered version of the album including 8 new unreleased tracks.

Cyborg Jeff - CD Album - Storytelling - 2017

Storytelling, the new mini-Album

Well, just a short album, but a new album ! Storytelling was a project settled in 2014 when i decide to write a little song that will fit for my elearning video production. I’ll grab back Open Modplug Tracker and the lovely sounds of 4Klang VSTi plugin that i’ve discovered in 2011 with the demoscene project D-Four with the song Love Potion Level 4.

Then i created a special ambient that fit each years for those new projects and I finally have a intersting mood of songs oriented to movie score, with similar minimalist sounds, demoscene influence but touching different electronic style.

This album for instance include the small song “Gimme a MOOC”, the jingle of the 3 first massive open online courses from the Universtiy of Liège. That means for now, this song have allready been heard by 15.000 people around the world… and i hope they like it !

New CD Album : Super CJ Land – Welcome to my TinyWorld

Super CJ Land - cover - gameboy - cyborgjeffHappy New Year dear friends ! Finally the brand new CJ’s album is there ! I know there was a long time ago i’m working on it ! It’s probably not the one i first imagine and sometimes takes more time to think about it than work on it… For sure be a daddy, have two works and also be Cyborg Jeff is not so easy ! So for instance, it should be first a ChipDisk coded by K93 and animated by my bros. Pype. That was in 2004 !

So, Super CJ Land : Welcome to my TinyWorld is not just a simple Chiptunes album nor an album written with just a GameBoy… This is a trip in Cyborg Jeff’s world with all this simple sounds and tinyfication challenges. Tools and software have changed during this long project. You’ll find musics composed with the Farbrausch FM synthesizer well known in the Demoscene world. You will also listen to tracks sounding like the C64 gold period ! But also some tunes for Video Games like in Amiga and Nintendo ! So i’ll hope this variety will be a strong of this album !
