Grrrr, just noted that another one of my old inspirations has passed away. Bruno (Jussi Pietilä) was active in the Amiga demoscene in the early 1990s making bizarre music like no one else. It doesn’t sound like chip music as in square waves and arpeggios, but it’s all 4 channel music with 8-bit samples (Protracker). It is really impressive works, still. For example, there’s the 5 minute death metal song in 116kb (controller), or the “finnish tundra orchestra” song that really sounds like a crazy little orchestra, only it’s a 116kb MOD-file (uralvolga).
You can download all of the songs in the original MOD-format at AMP or modland, or in OGG-format here (169mb). You can read more about Bruno and also see photos of him at a Bitfellas page. To play MOD-files use deliplayer or winamp+oldsk00l for PC, and maybe Cocomodx for Mac?
