Divagation : 20th anniversary

It’s time to celebrate the 20 years anniversary of Divagation, the first CD album of Cyborg Jeff.  You should go back to year 1997 ! That years received an incredible influence of big sounds coming from Faithless, Sash!, DJ MD or B.B.E. and for sure this album pick up a lot of mood from that DJs.

I had just 19 years old and in april my best friend Vivien had just received a brand new CD writer for his computer. (Wooow). At that time burning his own CD was something completly new and incredible ! Anyway the 20 selected songs in WAV can’t fit inside a 650mo hard drive, that mean i should have only kept 15 tracks for this first album !

Just remember at that time, i’m creating soundtracker music with Impulse Tracker running under MS-DOS, a software coming from the Amiga scene. Compare to MAO solution from that period, this software will not just only record the note but include samples from the instrument, that mean the .IT file format will be render exactly the same on each compure and will not be dependent from a MIDI Keyboard soundbank.

Anyway, we can’t compare the quality of this album with big DJ productions. It was composed with our brand new Pentium 120mhz with a big 8mo memory. Anyway the computer will not able to manage such kind of memory in MS-DOS, and our audio card will not support Stereo output.

So if this original album was not using Stereo effect, this anniversary version will include all tracks with some stereo enhancement and polish mastering adjustement.

Divagation is not just and only a technical story, but also stories about teenage time with all my friends, girls and school time…

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 !
