Chopin cover by Angelique.
Here another one of those tracks that somehow got lost on the website. Luckily it was still online on SoundCloud.
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 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.
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 […]
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!
Another piano piece by Angelique. Don’t know when it was made actually.
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.
Testing the MIDI retrofit on my grand driving a synth pad. Old meets new!
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…
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.
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).
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.
Some time ago, I promised a Facebook friend to cover one of his old tracker creations. Took me a while to actually get to it, but here it is. The original is a composition by Dave Brink, aka G.I.R.L., who made it with some tracker program a long time ago. I took the most identifiable […]
Another quick example of the overrated thing called “mashup”. This one was made in little over 2 hours by request of my brother. Is has the following songs mashed up together: Genesis – I Can’t Dance 2 Unlimited – The Magic Friend / Twilight Zone Eminem – Superman Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal
In 1977, Vangelis released his epic “Spiral” album with the evenly epic title song. In 1989, Ed Starink released a cover version of this song on various synthesizer albums, most notably the successful Synthesizer Greatest series released by Arcade. In 1991, I did my own cover version on a Roland SoundCanvas, using Ed’s cover as […]
This was my entry for the ReFX Christmas Contest. The challenge of the contest was to make a Christmas song using only the free expansion pack provided by ReFX and only using effects and tweaks of the Nexus². I decided to not take the “make a Christmas song” route, but emphasis more on using the […]
Powerhouse is originally a SID tune by Jeroen Tel and Thomas Mogensen, released under the name “Maniacs of Noise”. They made it for a demo on the Commodore 64. Make sure to also have a listen at the song like it was played by the good old Commodore 64 back in the 90s!
Pat Benatar’s hit in some sort of synthy-pop-dance remix done over the past few days. Had fun doing it, but got bored by the tune by now.
This is one of the very few tracks on my account that hasn’t been sequenced on a computer. This was entirely performed and sequenced on a Korg Wavestation EX and multitracked to a Tascam multi-track recorder. I made this after I finally received my “white label” expansion card with cool new sounds, among which “The […]
Take a rough guitar sound, dust off the old Korg M1 and abuse the overused “Universe” patch and hit the record button. That’s about how this track started…
Villa Volta is the name of a “Madhouse” attraction in Dutch amusement park “Efteling”. The original music was written especially for this attraction by Ruud Bos and has been playing at the attraction every day since it’s opening in 1996. You might recognise the music as a track from “The Dentist” in 2000, but this […]
After my previous Commodore 64 Gametune Cover I decided to do another one. By request the second one became the famous Sanxion Loader tune, also composed by Rob Hubbard.
A Commodore 64 classic composed by gamemusic master Rob Hubbard in a quick cover version by me. Commodore 64 lovers must all know this masterpiece. You can hear the original SID version of this tune on many SID specialized sites. This is the first tune in a planned series of many more to come. The […]
This was originally just a spontaneous “jamming around” on one of the preset patches on my new synth back in 1999. (Yamaha AN1x owners might recognize the arpeggiator loop.) About 6 years later (synth was already sold) I found the recording on an old tape (yes, tape!) and tried to manually re-create the nice arp-loop […]
