My own music

SMT

When I was around 16 or 17, I decided to try to make some musik with the computer. The easiest thing to make seemed to be techno, so I went for that. As a name for the imaginary band I used "SMT" (Self-Made Techno), you know how kids are...

These are the songs I created. At first, I used my keyboard and a MIDI-program. I don't know the type anymore. Later I bought a Soundblaster64 which had some new processor for generating instruments.

I recorded some songs on a music cassette ("SMT - The beginning"). None of this was published, and I don't think it is good enough to be published.

CTM

Later I decided SMT was a stupid name and changed it to another (stupid) name: "CTM" (Computer-Techno-Music). I made some more songs, and created a music CD ("Imagination"), which has also never been published except on this website. Some of the songs on the CD where also on the MC, some weren't.

Destruction and recovery

The software I used is probably not available anymore. The original files have vanished in a hard-disc crash. So all I had was the CD and the MC. I made a CD-rip and put the songs online here. Recently, I discovered the MC in the attic and used my old stereo to re-record it to the computer.

Sphere lights3:10CDpreviously as "New Age" on the MC, first song with Soundblaster64
Instructor themes4:14CDpreviously as "Instructed" on the MC, inspired by "Hymn" from "Music Instruction", although this may not be appearent. The name of the song certainly came this way
Faster than the light4:19CDalso on the MC under same name
End of part one3:40MClast song on the MC, the origin of the name is unclear, but somehow I must have felt that something different would follow after this song]])
Interludium3:45CDMelody from "End of part one" but different voice track, because I didn't like the spoken text. The name was also meant to emphasize the beginning of something new concerning my music.
Problems4:01CDThe song originated from my rather pessimistic attitude owards life in that days.
Dreaming3:35CD 
After that fast techno stuff, I decided to create some slow, meditational songs. These are still the once I like best...
Find to yourself9:25CDBased on the wish to find my inner self, my real wishes and needs. Contrary to the (presumed) expectations of other people.
The Darkside6:52CDAnother creation of the pessimistic mind, but with a light at the end of the tunnel.
