Lizardking – Lizardking’s Theme (Armandox Rework)

Posted Leave a comment
It was about time I did another remix for the Amiga/C64 demoscene, which still has a great following.

I’ve always wanted to do a remix of this track, as it is so close to my heart composition-wise. I love how Gustaf Grefberg works with chord-progressions, and especially in this tune let’s the bass run chromatically lower and lower against those chord-progressions. Sorry if that sounds nerdish, but if you had any form of musical education in your life and know a bit about solfege you know what I’m talking about. That being said, I think it is one of the hallmarks of a great composer and I’m proud to have been able to do this remix, keeping as much true to the original as possible. I wanted this remix to come out as an improved version of the original. Admittedly I did this remix totally by ear (I haven’t taken a look at the MOD in Protracker or such to see what chords are played) as I wanted to challenge myself and wanted maybe also to put a little bit of my own vibe to the track, as you mostly can hear in the bassline, which is not done with a step-sequencer or drawn into the ‘piano-roll’ by the way, but played by hand (as all parts in this remix)…

I hope you will enjoy my take on Lizardking’s Theme

Armandox – Sara’s Theme

Recorded and mixed in a couple of hours. Didn’t want to mess about to much with it and put it as plain as it was recorded. No quantization, no fancy mixing, pure music from the soul. Composed and recorded for Sara.

Hello musicfriends. Finally a little update on what I am doing lately in the wonderful world of music…

I’ve picked up playing the drums again for the band Grow Along. We play crossover-music written and composed by ourselves. Recently we did a very basic demo-recording of one of our songs:
