I’m the boss!

by Angelique Fazioli on October 13th, 2018 Leave a comment »

Many thanks to Ruben for trusting me with the maintenance of our music website. I’ll be doing my best to make this website easier to navigate and will also be deleting a lot of content. Since we’ll be focussing on our own music here, all the (year)mixes and mash-ups have been deleted from the website.

Who’s the boss?

by Ruben on October 13th, 2018 Leave a comment »

From now on, I (Ruben) will no longer be actively updating and maintaining this website. I will keep an eye on the webserver itself, but the content and entire look-and-feel of the Twisted World website is now in the capable hands of Angelique. Please contact her if you have any questions or remarks regarding our […]

Short note about the Synology Forums/Community

by Ruben on September 27th, 2018 Leave a comment »

Recently, Synology decided to completely disable their “Forums” and move their support to a new “Community”. While the forums were user-supported and maintained, this new “Community” is a Synology dictatorial system that is not only an absolute mess, but also moves all power to Synology. In other words; as soon as you post anything even […]

Roland D-5, D-10. D-20 and D-110

by Ruben on November 18th, 2017 1 comment »

In the late 80s, one of my friends bought a Roland D-10. For those days (and compared to the keyboards I owned myself) this synth was sounding absolutely astounding! I could never afford a D-10 myself in those days, so I enviously and endlessly listened to the ROM demos of the D-10 from a music […]

Korg M1

This is absolutely my all-time favourite synth! The sounds are awesome, the design is awesome, the possibilities are awesome, everything about this synth is awesome!

Andante Spianato (Chopin)

Chopin cover by Angelique.

Fly Free (John Maul Cover)

by Ruben on November 12th, 2017 Leave a comment »

Here another one of those tracks that somehow got lost on the website. Luckily it was still online on SoundCloud.

Toccata And Fugue In D Minor (J.S. Bach Cover)

by Ruben on November 12th, 2017 Leave a comment »

Some years ago, Angelique was visiting her family in The Netherlands during christmas. Her sister requested her to play the Toccata on some crappy Yamaha PSS keyboard (the PSS series has mini-keys). Angelique hooked it up to my MacBook running a decent Church Organ VSTi and this was the result…

Alpha-Gal

by Ruben on November 12th, 2017 Leave a comment »

Alpha-Gal is a soundtrack composed for my good Facebook friend, Dave Brink. Dave is a gifted comic-artist working on a project called “Earthling”, a comic about a vegan superhero/warrior.

The Piano (Michael Nyman Cover)

by Angelique Fazioli on November 6th, 2017 Leave a comment »

While cleaning up the redesigned website, I came across a snippet of music Ruben once made to give me a little scare. It’s a “rock version” of Michael Nyman’s “The Piano”. I wanted to add this snippet to the page with my cover version, only do find out this tracks isn’t on our website at […]

Liebeslied “Widmung” (Schumann-Liszt Cover)

by Ruben on February 12th, 2017 Leave a comment »

Performed by Angelique using a not-so-great piano sample library. (Doesn’t handle the sustain pedal very well and cuts off notes.)

Casio CSM-1

by Ruben on February 4th, 2017 Leave a comment »

Somewhere in the early 90’s I bought a crappy cheap sound module by Casio, The CSM-1. It didn’t have many useful sounds, it had a fixed number of available voices on a fixed number of channels and it was basically total crap. This was the build-in factory demo, which is a cover of the song […]

Onde Caressante (Music Box Version) (Ed Starink Cover)

by Ruben on October 9th, 2016 Leave a comment »

Another not-too-serious addition for my Ed Starink Greatest project that will probably never happen. I came across a nice music box sounds library and thought that this melody sounded great with it. Even added some real life music box noises along with the music.

Cristallin (EDM Concept) (Ed Starink Cover)

by Ruben on October 9th, 2016 1 comment »

This “entry” for my Ed Starink Greatest project was actually just meant as a joke and doomed be be lost in the digital afterlife forever. But somehow Angelique managed to dig it up from its binary grave and posted it on SoundCloud.

Unknown Piece

by Angelique Fazioli on October 9th, 2016 Leave a comment »

This piece was performed straight from some very Very VERY badly copied sheet music. There was no title or any other info on the sheets. Sounds like a track straight out of the “build/buy mode” from The Sims. Anyone who recognizes this piece, please let us know!

Liebesträume No. 3 In A-Flat Major (Franz Liszt)

by Ruben on October 9th, 2016 Leave a comment »

Another piano piece by Angelique. Don’t know when it was made actually.

One Man and His Droid

by Ruben on October 9th, 2016 Leave a comment »

One Man and His Droid is a song composed/programmed by Rob Hubbard for the Commodore 64 game by the same name, released by Mastertronic in 1985. This tune was playing non-stop through the entire game.

From Where I Am (Enya Cover)

by Angelique Fazioli on October 9th, 2016 Leave a comment »

Testing the MIDI retrofit on my grand driving a synth pad. Old meets new!

Goodnight My Angel

by Ruben on May 12th, 2016 Leave a comment »

Another great performance by Angelique using an unfortunate crappy sound library. This song was originally composed and performed by Billy Joel.

No more…

by Angelique Fazioli on April 6th, 2015 Leave a comment »

The “Kontakt Library Wallpaper Dimensions” post has been deleted by Angelique. We’re going to focus on our music from now on…

Inevitable Defeat

by Ruben on December 29th, 2014 Leave a comment »

So, Angelique set me up with this little “challenge” or “assignment” in which I got only 24 hours to create a piece of music depicting an outnumbered medieval army that was about to face certain defeat…

Open Minded 2 (Omnidextrous Dub)

by Ruben on August 10th, 2014 1 comment »

Webmaster of Starink World, Andreas Heinz, posted some of his own compositions in the Ed Starink Facebook Group about 5 weeks ago. There were some interesting tracks in there, some of which were great compositions, but lacking a melody.

Oceano (Roberto Cacciapaglia Cover)

by Ruben on August 3rd, 2014 Leave a comment »

After our previous little project, Angelique and I decided to “practice” a bit by covering an existing piano/orchestra piece. We choose “Oceano” by Roberto Cacciapaglia (because my mother provided Angelique with the sheet music).

Even Months Only

by Ruben on June 28th, 2014 Leave a comment »

This is a little fun experiment in creating a song together with Angelique. I’ve known her for about 13 years now but just recently found out that she still plays the piano pretty well.

Strictly Personal (Ed Starink Cover)

by Ruben on June 15th, 2014 Leave a comment »

Another track for my planned “Ed Starink Greatest volume 1” compilation.  This is the fourth track I sort of finished, but it was actually the first track I started working on and got the entire Ed Starink Greatest “project” running.
