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.

I was dreaming writing musics for video games

At 10 years old, my brother Pype and I allready dreamed to create video game on our C64 and i also had in mind to write the musics for them.

As in 1993 we launched some first project in EP Basic, Quick Basic and also Gamemaker for our heroes Bilou or Badman with Pierrick HANSEN, i should wait to 1997 before we were able to add our musics inside.

In early 1997, my brother coded in ASM an S3M audio player that let us imagine a small game from scratch. Code name : Crazy Brix.

Crazy Brix was a brick game like Arkanoid or Kypton Egg completly coded by my borthers. I wrote the techno-minute tracks for it in summer 1997 with a potential inspiration from One Must Fall 2097 video game music from Kenny Chow.

Crazy Brix'97 - PPP Team Software, 1997
Crazy Brix’97 – PPP Team Software, 1997

“Beurk, crappy transparence, it was better in Basic !”

For sure, i was not so kind with my brother at that time. I had the easier place with just giving ideas and wirtten the musics ! At that time, he only have some reading book to understand Assembler Machine Code as we do not have acces to Internet !

In 1999, we had in mind to go to the Inscene’99 our first Demoparty organised in Belgium. The idea was to rework Crazy Brix to fit to the 100ko game competition and that mean also completly change the musics of the game with tiny smaller files !

So for the first time all the tracks from Crazy Brix project is now available in a restored and optimised version on an audio album !

“And what’s about the love ?” Finally downloadable !

What's about the love ? CD Album - Cyborg Jeff
What’s about the love ? CD Album – Cyborg Jeff

Well many of my CD Album were still available around the Web, but a great one of them like this “And What’s About the Love ?” were never released… Few days before the 20th anniversary of Cyborg Jeff, i’ve just push it on Bandcamp…

So, Go back to 1999. I was 20 years old, i believe i was a man, but i still just a teenager. I thought one day i’ll a be a star like the DJ i loved. Every friday nights i join my friend V and we go to the Metropolis Club listening to DJ Jurgen, Wamdue Project, Mr. Oizo, DJ Sakin & Friends and some other stuffs like this…

Then i meet a girl. I felt in love, I would like to let her heard my heart beating like a techno vibes, I dream of a live with her, with just the feeling a teenager like me could have but I would like she takes my hand, jump with me and put her head on my shoulder… the days passed, things was not so easy, she’s too far, i was sad alone in my bedroom with my new Yamaha DJX keyboard and my computer, i need to see her back, i wanna scream my heart once again for her… but this over, this day off, next life will be without her.

Well that CD Album is just the story about that.

So you’re welcome to (re)discover it… it’s freely downloadable and this second edition includes new covers and two unreleased tracks.

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 !
