If this were to be formally classified it might be considered “cheesy jazz.” Then again there are parts of it (a note or two) that kind of stick.

I originally wrote this song using a program called Music Shop on a Commodore 64 when I was about 17. Working with a C64 was great, but the SID sound chip could only produce 3 different sounds at a time, so the musical ideas had to be somewhat simplified. I eventually made this mix of it using an Alesis QuadraSynth S4, which has lots of symphonic patches, or at least symphonic samples that can be coerced in programs. I tried to make patches that were reminiscent of the original C64 SID chip sounds, and I got fairly close. Of course it’s moot because I’m the only one who knows what the original SID sound patches sound like.

Just a little dramatic snippet. I’m not sure why, but I can imagine this used in a commercial for a dirty toothbrush. Twisted bristles with gooey bacterial slime on them. “Isn’t it time you bought a new toothbrush?”

Why is this called “mind lander”? I couldn’t tell you, but the song snippet makes me think of part of an action sequence of a 1970s B-Movie. Too bad I lost my market. I might have been able to make some money with this.

This one makes heavy use of some unaltered Morpheus patches. I think I was exploring some of the sounds of the Morpheus at the time to see what I might do with it. I think I bought the Morpheus from E-MU (now owned by Creative) for around $300. Such fun for a song.
