Many of these tunes exploit bugs (out of bounds parameters) to cause some glitch effects. Naturally, emulators/PC-playback routines didn’t anticipate this and summarily crashed to pieces when these were first released.
If you have a fairly up-to-date copy of XMPlay with the hivelytracker-ahx plugin, you should be golden to play the original source files, available here:
An updated version of AHX for high-end Amigas, supporting up to 16 channels of AHX synthesis- Hivelytracker. Compatible with AHX and has its own format (HVL) for advanced synthesis such as ring-modulation.
Releases made through the Demo subculture scene – the demoscene – for the fun, for the win, and in some of the cases, getting it done. Here’s a side of RedHeat you probably didn’t know existed. Please enjoy my dumb af. crowd pleasers: NSFW in quite a few. Listener caution advised.
Origins, released on 19th January 2019, is a collection of interconnected instrumental pieces with strong world influences in an easy listening format. This album is designed to be played end to end, with each piece flowing into the next for an hour of soothing relaxation, with uplifting themes interspersed with gentle meditative parts.
Sonic Soundscapes. Space, Sound & Simple.
Genre: New Age: Ethnic Fusion, Folk, Electronic, Downtempo
Visuals recorded, composited, drawn and rendered solely with the very finite resources of an iPhone 5s using a very early version of Luma Fusion.
The music itself fits into a 64k executable because its only 4.7k! Created in Renoise with Clinkster synthesizer and home brew synth patches. This would become my last track ever composed on a conventional PC. The iPhone itself had now become the most powerful device in my possession. RIP.
The pieces on this album were composed over a number of years between 2003 and 2006, each piece describes instrumentally a place and time in the artist’s life, transporting the listener through ethereal mysterious discoveries to crusades and adventures across a soundscape befitting of a fantasy realm.
The follow up album to the early debut- Outer Circle, continuing with a variety of eclectic, powerful, peaceful and pleasant pieces composed in the amateur home studio of RedHeat during the period 2002-2003.
Initially released on the original MP3.com platform back in the late 90s/early 2Ks the album was critically acclaimed reflected by good sales and reception in the New Age genre. After the collapse of MP3.com (CEO Michael Robertson) the album faded into obscurity due to lack of distribution. The album was put up for free download for many years via the RedHeat website.
