Best <256 byte music I've heard, regardless of platform I think.
LFT+SID = magic!

256b is just black magic...

Really cool tune !

This sounds amazing, even disregarding the file size. Funny. I don't remember this having colors in the stream.

Nice sound LFT. I hope you stick on the platform for a while ;) We need you @C64 ;)

I love it when a minimalistic piece like this makes you forget about the restrictions but sucks me in because of its own artistic merits. Much more than "just" a technical achievement.

Most atmospheric track in 256b ever!

Love this, the mood and tone in the music just really hits the spot for me. Visuals match that atmosphere brilliantly.

Probably the most intriguing sizecoding I've seen on the C64. This one really grabs you by the brain and never lets go.

Thanks for all the kind comments! A technical writeup is now available.

Also a really great, illustrative writeup. I felt I learned a lot about the C64 by reading it. :)

Let me spoil the cheer-leading soup a little with an unenthusiastic 'meh' :)

Because all the clever tech wrangling (and excellent documentation) still leaves me with a glitch intro, were neither video nor audio are particularly interesting or engaging. Not to mention that roughly the same experience (sans thin layers of projected story arc) can be had for a handful of bytes on this machine; I find things like Wallflower to be still miles ahead when it comes to WTF factor and satisfaction of nerd sensibilities. But that might be just me. :)

Oh yes. This is really something!
rulez added on the 2017-04-21 11:49:00 by spkr spkr
I used to think like that ^^^ during the compo, then I realized 256b is still 256b, it doesn't become more just because you have a built in hardware synth.
rulez added on the 2017-04-21 11:49:39 by Gargaj Gargaj
Absolutely mind boggling work. As many before I'm way to dumb to actually *get* what is happening, but this was mesmerising.

Also LFT, I'm totally reading your write-up in your voice and it's great :D
rulez added on the 2017-04-21 11:54:11 by okkie okkie
Impressive. Thanks for the explanation!

Awesome procedural music.. the filter and sidechain effect work wonders. :) Thank you for the byte by byte writeup!

Awesome, thanks for the writeup indeed!
Batshit nuts!
rulez added on the 2017-04-21 18:49:04 by zerd zerd
the part where the bass line changes key dropped my jaw more than the entire 4k and 64k compos of this year's revision combined.

the writeup doesn't make it any less magic.

Sick 256b music that doesn't even sound like chip music.

rulez added on the 2017-04-23 00:50:43 by gyabo gyabo
I don't know. It's cool but I'm not exactly head over heels over this despite the technical merits. Still one of the better entries in the compo. A mild thumb.
rulez added on the 2017-04-23 01:08:44 by noby noby
Not too impressed, since i did a similar thing a while ago in 128 bytes ;)

speaCore 128b

But i guess it's harder to pull off on c64, and the write up is enlighting.
(to me, as a not-yet-c64-sizecoder)

and the bass sounds quite cool, so have a thumb :)

awesome amount of music + progression packed into 256 bytes on a platform that doesn't make extreme sizecoding easy

What most ppl already said, but I want to stress that the music is really, REALLY good! Would loop it in my headphones even if it wasn't 256b!

This was surprisingly immersive during the compo, and one of the highlights from the compos this year for me.

the music alone in 256b would be a serious achievement!
