Those meleodic tracks were a new step in my musical creation and have now a special taste of Cyborg Jeff’s year 1998. A year with songs worked around my new synthesizer Roland E68, what i was able to do with it and Impulse Tracker but also an new sight and ears on musical world during my first years at the IAD institude with my friend and pianist Didier Rombauts. Finally it was also tracks with the influence of modern Demoscene world i discovered through the magazine PC Fun and PC Team.
This album called “Cyborgelis” is for sure a reference to the electronic musician Vangelis as if those track will not have the same mood and sounds. But anyway, those music sounds different, what i called “New Age” and that’s what have inspirated myself for that name in 1998.
So today, it’s time to celebrate the 20 years of the Album Eyes Dreams and i finally thinked it would be interessant to have two different albums. I’ve fist remastered those selection of music originaly written with Impulse Tracker II on my PC Cyrix 133mhz and for sure you’ll also be able to download the original .IT files.
Those remastering work was more important than what i do on my older anniversary album. I’ve exported all the instruments on each songs separetly with Open Modplug Tracker (thanks Elmobo for the tricks) and was able to make the job with Reaper with good advices of Spaneo.
Today i’m proud to share with you that work and letting you (re)discover those sounds, those little songs i’ve written 20 years ago.
