LastFM 2015

LastFM kicks off indie musicians

Well, there more than 10 years now that i used LastFM to scroble the song i listen to, but also to share my music album. In 2005, LastFM was the first place i could upload a complete album let it share to you freely.

Bought to CBS in 2007, LastFM have tryed some dark streaming pay version but kept the free solution till augutst 2015. At that date, a BETA version have been released with many options deleted.

One of them is the possibility to upload music as a independant artist or label. But LastFM have also unlinked all the music freely available till ten years. That means many of my Cyborg Jeff’s album was now unvailable.

Once again the world of music have made a step in the darkness.

 

Sound Cloud - Cyborg Jeff - Y

Crossroads in my life – Y

For sure, years passed and music is sometimes far from today’s life. I’ve so many works with the children, movies, weddings, photos, gardening,… anyway, i’m still there.

Sometimes you’ve just on a crossroad in your life. both left and right road seems to be a good way. Once with flowers and and another with cute far village. Once seems to be long and the other one with some hills to climb. None of them was worst, you just need to choose your way and can’t go forward.

Cyborg Jeff - YAt that moment, you’ve been dropped in a temp crash, that let you stay in both life. Your mind was connected to Open Mogplug Tracker with the minimalist 4KLange VSTi and you hands let play some notes between to movie rendering. A song was borned. That tune have not a one way direction, there are many hypothesis, no schemes but surprises, aproximations, imperfections… just like the life.

What a chance, i realy need a new generic theme for IFRES season 2015. For sure i should also try to use this song in a 4K Demo or 64ko project, but i need to share it now. It’s still in the same mod than Love Potion Level 4 as it use the same synths.

Musically, i was proud of this bass sound that balance the track. It sounds minimalist but have something modern too. The bass theme is for sure a poke to New Beat generation.

About the quite intro note sequence, it remember scenemusic ambient (maybe 2L from Alkama ?)

Every Song Has A Story - HTML 5 - MP3

“Every Song Has A Story” now compatible with Safari and iOS.

Hmm, long time i’ve try to understand why the “PodPress” MP3 player  will not switch from Flash to HTML5 when i use my iPad. That would be so kwel if users will be alble to listen to the 556 till available on the website “Every Song Has A Story“.

After convert all the database to another podcast plugin (PowerPress), the HTML 5 works but only on Chrome, Firefox. iOS device and Safari still not working. I Finally understood that it was due to the FTP call that was not supported in Apple system. That means using the HTML 5 <audio> was not supproted with this kind of source. Now i’ve migrated all the MP3Stream in an html format and it works well after doing a search&replace in the database.

It would be a good idea to add the next songs on the website isn’t it ?

Beyond the Galaxy - Cyborg Jeff

CJ 20 YEARS #1 – Beyond the Galaxy

1995 – 2015 : There’s now 20 years i’m programming music with my computer with now more than 1000 songs. So it’s a good moment to let your (re)discover some of them each week !

The first one i choose is “Beyond the Galaxy” written in the end of 1996 with my brand new PC Pentium, this track is some kind of Amiga Shoot’m up style. At that time i wrote especially Techno tracks but i touched to all kind of music and writing video games music is allready things i liked. In 1996, i was still working in .S3M file format with Scream Tracker III and after 1 year and half, that was my 262th song.

This module use samples coming from classical amiga set and there are a melody part played with a Piano like “Dream Music” that i really liked in 96. Many times have passed till i’ve written this song and i know many of you also like that track. There a point i notice now, the fact that it sounds like a Rock music using realy oldschool sounds.

  BETGAL.S3M (68.7 KiB, 752 hits)

Beyond the Galaxy is also available on the CD album Gimme an Amiga available on Bandcamp, Jamendo or Spotify.
