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

“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 !

Cyborg Jeff - Powerglove - Amiga - OST

Powerglove – Amiga OST released

Ode to the Amiga time, I invite you to discover the OST I’ve written for Powerglove (by Lazycow). The game from Matthias Bock will be soon available on the mythic 90s computer !

During you’re playing with the Hero and his powerglove to save our earth, i’ve choose to adapt my original C64 theme searching inspiration from the best musical of that early 90s period : Thomas Petersen ‘Laxity’ & Kim Christensen (DNA Warrior), Stéphane Picq (Dune), Tim & Lee Wright (Shadow of the Beast 2), Olof Gustafsson (Pinball Fantasies), Allister Brimble (Project X), Chris Huelsbeck (Grand Monster Slam), Robert A. Allen (Jazz Jack Rabbit), Koji Kondo (Super Mario Bros.), Martin Galway (Comic Bakery) or Yuzo Koshiro (Street of Rage).

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 !
