Lazerscale 2010

Updated: Oct 9, 2010 9:32pm

Lazerscale is a collective project where artists submit 1 song for every day of the year.

I started late unfortunately- Sept 25 2010. The eventual decision to join came down to my inability to write anything "good enough" to release. To break that mode I can release garbage once a day.

Each song was composed the day of its release. What this means is sometimes the mixing/content may be lacking in quantity or quality. It's a exercise. Maybe after I run out of steam I'll extend & fix up the best of them.

The first set of songs I'm composing use a iOS application (iPhone, iPod, iPad) called Nanostudio. There is a free version for Windows and OSX so you can take a look at the original song source and play around with it if you like. Though all music is Creative Commons Attribution (give credit to trash80), Non-commercial, and No derivations unless otherwise specified in the file.

The source files and songs entries are below:

So glad to hear great new tunes from you!

Your high standards for what is "good enough" is why you are one of the best.
Jeff C is right - if this is what you call garbage I'll take it! It's been far too long for some fresh Trash80 tunes.

Sorry im sick right now. there are 2 more songs on lazerscale2010 site

Oct 7, 2010 10:13pm

Yay, more tracks.

Oct 7, 2010 10:20pm

Oh, the other 2 tracks are pianotracks. Got to love pianoteq.

Hey Tim, are you going to remake them in 8bit fashion or keep the piano theme?

Oct 8, 2010 3:01am

Agreed. Don't Ever Stop Writing!

Oct 10, 2010 5:24pm

Awesome concept, and I couldn't think of anyone I'd want more to participate.

Don't sweat the quality--it's clear your standards are miles above what most consider great. Just enjoy it, and we will too!

Oct 12, 2010 3:21pm

I totally agree with everyone else. This definitely ain't trash (har har har) by any stretch of the imagination!

Oct 13, 2010 10:32pm

Ditto, this ain't trash. Luckily I got here while I was roaming through your Darwinia stuff on youtube. I've noticed a afew other people have started using something similar to your Pain Fade Down computerised tone scales, whatever they're called. Can't get enough of that stuff. More, please.

I love your music. Never stop composing!

Once again awesome stuff. Forgive me, as this next question is in regards to another track. Where is "Excuses"? I wanted to compile all the tracks from the Darwinia soundtrack, but I don't see Excuses anywhere on here, and it's the only track I'm missing. Could someone help me with this?

I can't even begin to think of how you say that your music is garbage. It's true, far from it. I love LOVE sitting at work or in my room or while I'm playing games and just mellowing out to your music. Sometimes it takes me back to the days where I was carefree and enjoying just playing stuff like Nintendo and the original Gameboy. This music is not garbage, nothing you do it. You have a fanbase who loves what you do and wants more and more.

You're amazing talent seems to bright days other than the ones I live so this means that your only possible course of action is of course: Keep doing what your doing and do it proudly. We love it and so should you.

Please please PLEASE keep it coming. I'd kill me if I stopped getting stuff from Trash80!

02 is so good. I could dance to it forever.

Dec 17, 2010 4:46pm

Im so happy for you that you haven't been unnoticed! Your talent is valuable and you should be recognized for it. I listen to your tracks all the time, theyre inspiring!

Definitely "fix up" these tracks and release an EP. They'd hardly need anything done to them.

Jan 31, 2011 7:22pm

Hahaha I love how he always says "meh, this is garbage", or "it sucks", and everyone loves it :)

But while these tunes are pretty cool, I have to agree with him, it's not as great as his other stuff, and EPs like Icarus or Hologram are a clear cut above that. Still, that's far from garbage.

Brilliant stuff, looking forward to more.

Mar 26, 2011 2:56pm

Insane work, keep it going mate :D

What are you using for the piano tunes? Is that an iPad app as well...?

I don't know how You do it.
Your Art is nostalgic, moving, intriguing and detailed.
I am shocked by quality and sensuality of Your work.
Thank You.

I followed a link to another 8bit ppl and his site reminded me of you, so here I am again and thankfully you've posted some awesome new tracks. I was trying to think of something witty or funny to post, but then I listened to the devil's puppet and it hit me.

Your music has brought me to tears over & over. I've listened to it over & over. I always thought it's because 8bit music was the soundtrack of my life and you are a master composer--both still true--but at least for me, it allows a glimpse into an alternate reality where I made different life decisions. I don't know if that makes sense, but it gives me such joy & perspective. Not that I dislike how my life turned out, but your music elicits a vision of another existence that is currently askew, but now that I see it, it can converge.

We love you, always will, and hope you're happy. That is all!

I totally understand what you feel. I listen Tim's music for long time. My life did not worked well (to this moment) , but the music still fits the pattern of my consciousness.
His music is like suspended time for me. Sometimes is painful and sometimes is full of light.
