irrlicht project live @ Ohrbit 2018

Post by utz » Thu Aug 30, 2018 10:16 pm

Thought I'd share this lil' recording of the live set I recently played at the Ohrbit chiptune festival in Duisburg, Germany. ZX beeper music, with a few TI calculator tracks and an Atari VCS tune thrown in. Style-wise it's pretty heavy, mostly metal and hard-rock, occasionally with some screaming vocals, so it might not be to everyone's liking. Anyway, here we go:

Sounds great! I'm curious as to how you go about doing a live performance? Are you triggering patterns with the keyboard or is it all preprogrammed beforehand?

Thanks :) Just playing preprogrammed tracks, so it's more of a DJ set, really. Unlike some more talented folks ;) My calculator software does give me possibility for live interaction (muting channels, triggering effects etc), but I definately need to build some more live tools for the ZX beeper.

Nice! Playing live on a rubber keyboard does look rather tricky though. It would be cool if you could connect the Spectrum up to the CV output on a synth and play it like that.
