    DUBCRT Commodore 64 Cartridge (PAL only)

    DUBCRT is a music album, interactive light synthesizer and remix gadget released as a Commodore 64 cartridge. With music and visuals from some of the most prolific experimentalists of the 8-bit scenes, DUBCRT taps into 1960s modernist forms, 1970s dub, 2000s glitch aesthetics, and 2020s sustainable computing. DUBCRT features:

    • Eight songs ranging from ambient to IDM and drum n’ bass
    • Visualisers that react to the music, and that are user-controllable
    • A secret remix module that allows you to re-interpret all the music on the cartridge

    All of this uses only 64 kilobytes – equivalent to 1.5 seconds of MP3-audio. This is possible thanks to clever use of resources, and by making all the graphics in PETSCII, the colourful and quirky ASCII-variant of the Commodore 64.

    Everyone involved has a background in the so called demoscene, an underground creative computer subculture around since the 1980’s.

    Goto80 (audio, Sweden) was one of three nominees for best C64-composer at Commodore’s 25 year anniversary, and regularly performs live around the world. He also does academic research on text mode graphics and retro computer cultures. www.goto80.com

    4-mat (programming/design, UK) makes tiny audiovisual art for various 8-bit computer systems, and works with game audio. He was also one of the first in the world to make chipmusic on the Amiga in 1990. 4mat.bandcamp.com

    iLKke (graphics/design, Australia) is a notorious pixel artist and composer, who started in the Amiga demoscene in Serbia. ilkke.net

    Ray Manta (concept/design, Australia) is the alias of veteran electronica producer Tim Koch, who initiated and organized the project.

This audio version of the Commodore64 cartridge features all of the tracks that have been recorded from the actual MOS 6581 and MOS 8580 SID chips from authentic hardware - with a stereo mix combining both of the SID models into one waveform.

Also included in the audio version are eleven remixes from artists such as Datasette, Julien Mier and Mesak.
