about

Eight-Bit Deboned was composed and played using a tracker (Oktalizer 1.0) on an Amiga 500 between december 1988 and january 1989.

With this set I composed 14 songs about people's moods and travels, then I packed all on a HD floppy in mod format, with a mod player enclosed. The resulting sound vaguely reminds of Residents or Fred Frith. Technical limitations (only 8 mono tracks) gave him a minimal taste, between 70's 8-bit videogame music and freak industrial.

In October 2008 I found a copy and decided to reissue it. On Amiga I tried to reconstruct songs (all had errors and missing or damaged sounds), I substituted some samples such Malcom X on Friend and Enemies or a few voices in Luke's travel. At the end I recovered only 10 tracks.
