Many years ago, while messing with a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, I fried the chip and accidentally inhaled some of that “magic blue smoke”.

Since then, I have had an obsession with making sound machines from 8-bit sound chips and game systems.

I believe that chips from this era have had time to develop their Artificial Intelligence, and that I, through this incident, am able to communicate with these in a way. At least I get inspired by their distinctive sound and limitations.

This conceptual project consists of building sound devices of these and casing them in Sinclair computer and peripherals cases.


Over time I have designed and built about 20 sound-, control- and effect units, and now have a diverse setup that I make music with.

I won’t define this music any more than that it is: electronic & danceable.
