                         HARDCORE DESIGN WELCOMES YOU WARMLY TO THEIR VERY FIRST SERIOUS TRY OF PRODUCING A MUSIC DISK!   'HYMNS OF LOGIC' HAS BEEN PLANNED FOR MORE THAN A YEAR BUT BOTH THE MUSIC AND THE CODE HAS BEEN DELAYED LONG ENOUGH TO KEEP US FROM RELEASING IT UNTIL NOW.   ANYWAY, HERE IT IS, AND WE CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THERE IS REALLY HARD WORK BEHIND THE MUSIC AS WELL AS THE CODE AND THE GRAPHICS.   THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE IS ON APRIL 23. THE MUSIC IS IN OUR OPINION REALLY OK, THE CODE AND THE GRAPHICS HOWEVER BEING PRODUCED UNDER QUITE A PRESSURE, WHICH PROBABLY DECREASES THE TOUCH OF THE FINAL PRODUCTION.   THE CODER BEHIND ALL OF THIS HAS NOT BEEN CODING IN ASSEMBLER FOR MORE THAN HALF A YEAR, SO YOU'LL HAVE TO KEEP THAT IN MIND BEFORE STARTING TO CRITICIZE DESIGN ETC . . . IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT WORSE! :-)   BESIDES, WHAT REALLY COUNTS IS THE MUSIC, RIGHT? IN WHOLE, WE FEEL IT SERVES OUR NEEDS AND PURPOSES AND THAT IT OF COURSE ALSO CAN BE IMPROVED IF WE WOULD GET THE VERY UNREALISTIC IDEA (!? AT LEAST FOR NOW) TO MAKE A SECOND MUSIC DISK SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE.  THE CREDITS FOR THIS MUSIC DISK GO LIKE THIS:      - MUSIC: ELF AND GORFY -        - MAIN CODE: UFO -          - GRAPHICS: SKUTT -        - ADDITIONAL CODE: SKUTT -      NOW FOR SOME QUICK INSTRUCTIONS -   MOST THINGS CAN BE ACHIEVED BY USING THE MOUSE, BUT THERE ARE HOWEVER A FEW KEYS TO KEEP IN MIND:   SPACE - PAUSES SCROLLER.   BACKSPACE - LOADS AND PLAYS A NEW TUNE, WHICH ONE DEPENDING ON THE PLAYMODE YOU HAVE CHOSEN.   ESC - EXIT TO DOS.    PLAYMODE IS CHANGED SIMPLY BY CLICKING THE MOUSE ON THE CURRENT PLAYMODE.      THE REST IS REALLY OBVIOUS, SO I'LL LET YOU TRY IT OUT FOR YOURSELF!               THE MUSIC HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FOR OVER 1 YEAR NOW, BUT THIS YEAR OF COURSE INCLUDES SOME LONG BREAKS AND DELAYS, LIMITING THE EFFICIENT COMPOSING TIME DOWN TO PERHAPS ABOUT 1 MONTH(?) IN WHOLE. ALL THE CODE, GRAPHICS AND DESIGN WAS PLANNED SOME MONTHS BEFORE THE ACTUAL RELEASE. OUR REAL INTENTION WAS TO RELEASE THIS AT 'THE PARTY 3' IN DENMARK, BUT FOR SOME REASON THE CODE WAS NEVER FINISHED IN TIME. ANYWAY, YOU'RE NOW WATCHING THE FINAL VERSION. IT ACTUALLY TURNED OUT QUITE ORIGINAL, CONSIDERING IT'S UFO'S VERY FIRST PRODUCTION.        WELL, ENOUGH SAID, NOW TRY LISTENING TO THE MUSIC INSTEAD OF GETTING BORED TO DEATH BY THESE SCROLLS OF OURS!                                          

     THIS SCROLLER WILL PROBABLY WITHOUT DOUBT BE THE MOST BORING SCROLLER, SINCE I'VE BEEN SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR IN CORRUPTOR'S KITCHEN FOR 5-6 HOURS, JUST WOKE UP.  WELL I SUPPOSE I SHOULD WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT THE GRAPHICS IN THIS MUSIC DISK. THE WORK ON THIS MUSIC DISK STARTED ABOUT 1 AND A HALF YEAR AGO, AND THEN I FINISHED ALL THE GRAPHICS FOR THE INTRO PART. EVEN THEN WE WEREN'T SURE OF THE DESIGN, AND DUE TO SEVERAL DELAYS OCCURING DURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS MUSIC DISK, MY INSPIRATION DISAPPEARED. SO THE FIRST TWO HIRES-INTERLACE LOGOS ARE NEARLY THE SAME AS THEY WERE 1 AND A HALF YEAR AGO! AND FOR THE GRAPHICS IN THE MAIN PART (MORE EXCUSES!) SINCE THE DEADLINE FOR THIS MUSIC DISK HAS BEEN PUSHED FORWARD SINCE THE GATHERING '93,     I SPENT MOST OF THE TIME TRYING TO CORRECT SOME STRANGE THINGS ON THE PICTURES CAUSED BY MY OLD 24 INCHES SAMSUNG TV!! BUT LUCKILY ONE OF OUR CODERS HAD MERCY WITH ME AND GAVE ME A ROTTEN PHILIPS MONITOR ON THE TCC, I WAS IN HEAVEN. THIS MONITOR WASN'T THE BEST BUT FOR ME WHO HAD BEEN DOING MY GRAPHICS ON A FUCKING SAMSUNG TV WITH AN RF-MODULATOR, IT WAS A GREAT IMPROVEMENT. MY ONLY PROBLEM AT THIS STAGE WAS THAT I HAD JUST SOLD MY COMPUTER!! SO AGAIN A MEMBER OF OUR WONDERFUL GROUP HAD MERCY WITH ME AND LENT ME HIS AMIGA 500-TOWER, WHICH I STILL HAVE IN MY POSSESSION. AHHH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I HAD AN AMIGA WITH A HARD-DRIVE. NOW MY WORK INCREASED WITH 200 PERCENT, AND IN THE AUTUMN OF '93 I FINISHED ALL THE GRAPHICS FOR THE MAIN PART.   AND NOW HERE I'M BOORING YOU WITH MB'S OF BOORING SCROLL!!!!  AHHHHHH WE MIGHT AS WELL THROW OUT A BUNCH OF PERSONAL GREETS TO THE FOLLOWING SICK HEADS:      AGAMEMNON/HCD - FUMMELMANNEN.  CORRUPTOR/HCD - STOP YOUR STRANGE BEHAVIOUR TRAINING KUNG-FU AND BOOZING ALL WEEK LONG.  ELF/HCD - HISS HISS HISS. (NOT ANYWHERE ON THIS MUSIC DISK! :-) /ELF'S COMMENT)   UFO/HCD - SPEEDY CODING RULEZ.  DOC.TROTYL/HCD - TAKE A SHOWER.  ARVID TUBA/HCD - MORE KIDS IN THE GROUP.  INM8/HCD - BANANAS FOREVER.  PINHEAD/HCD - YOU MUST BE SICK DOING THOUSE 256 COLOR PICTURES.  ZERO/HCD - I AM WAITING FOR THE MAG.  GORFY/HCD - BURNED OUT?  MELETH/SKID ROW - IT'S HERE AT LAST.  DIRTY BUSH/DCS - I'LL FORCE YOU TO WATCH THIS.  MUTANT/DCS - YOU WILL GET THE PICTURES FROM PINHEAD.  THE GNN/DCS - GOOD SHIT AHHH GOOD SHIT!.  MR.COKE/INDEPENDENT - HOPEFULLY I'VE SEEN YOUR NEW APARTMENT BY NOW.  METAL/INSANE - QUALITY MUSIC RULES :)   REACTOR/HCD - COMMIE BASTARD.  ZANOK/HCD - FIX THE BOARD.  DISC/INDEPENDENT - MUUUUU.  FATALPOWER/HCD - YOU'RE LAZY :)  CRUGER/SKID ROW - STOP TRADING, YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TALENT!  SKUTT/HCD - YOU'RE SO COOL :) (OH YEAH? :-) /ELF'S COMMENT).  SWIFT J/? - HOPEFULLY YOU'VE GOT YOUR INTRO BY NOW.  NAAAH EXCUSE ME WHEN I KISS THE SKY . . . LET'S END THESE BORING GREETINGS WITH SOME BULLSHIT INSTEAD, LIKE SORRY TO EVERYONE I FORGOT.. IF YOU BY ANY STRANGE REASON WOULD LIKE TO CONTACT ME THEN WRITE TO ELF AND HE WILL PASS ON THE LETTERS TO ME . . . SO THIS BORING TEXT MUST COME TO THE END. FINALLY!                                     

 AFTER TWO YEARS OF DELAY OUR MUSIC DISK IS FINISHED AND I HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY THE RESULTS OF OUR HARD WORK. WHEN I JOINED HARDCORE DESIGN THEY HAD STARTED TO DEVELOP A MUSIC DISK BUT THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY CODER TO CODE IT. THEY ONLY HAD 'CORRUPTOR' BUT HE WAS DOING HIS MILITARY SERVICE. I'D SAY A MUSIC DISK IS VERY HARD TO START WITH (IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER). BUT HERE IT IS AND I THINK THAT THIS IS A VERY GOOD FIRST PRODUCTION. THIS IS MAYBE NOT THE FASTEST BUT IT SHOULD WORK ON ANY COMPUTER (NOT ATARI/PC/SILICON GFX/COMPIS THOUGH) . . .  IT TOOK ME ABOUT FOUR MONTHS TO COMPLETE. THAT WAS MORE THAN I EXPECTED AND MUCH MORE JOB THAN I IMAGINED IT WOULD BE. IT'S NOT JUST A SCROLLER AND SOME MUSIC PLAYING, ALL THE ROUTINES MUST WORK TOGETHER, AND ON ANY AMIGA. THAT'S HARD WHEN YOU REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO IT. I BELIEVE THIS MUSIC DISK SHOULD WORK ON AN AMIGA 500 WITH AT LEAST ONE MEG OF RAM UP TO AN AMIGA 4000.  I HAVE TESTED THIS MUSIC DISK AND IT EVEN WORKS ON AN AMIGA 1200 WITH A 50 MHZ 030 . . . I JUST HAVE TO SAY THAT IT'S VERY HARD TO FIND A PLAYROUTINE THAT IS FAST AND PLAYS THE MODULES RIGHT (THIS IS A MUSIC DISK!) AND I DIDN'T FIND ANYONE EXCEPT THE OLD PROTRACKER1.1 ROUTINE (IT MAY NOT BE THE FASTEST BUT AT LEAST IT PLAYS EVERYTHING CORRECTLY). (PRORUNNER CAN'T HANDLE SOME OF THE E-COMMANDS RIGHT /ELF'S COMMENT) I THINK IT'S TIME FOR A CODER AND SOME MUSICIANS TO CODE A REAL PLAYROUTINE WHICH IS A FAST ONE . . . ALL FAST ONES PLAY WRONG AND SLOW ONES CAN'T BE USED IN DEMOS. THAT'S VERY HARD FACTS . . . HOW MANY DEMOS/INTROS PLAY THE MUSIC WRONG? THAT'S MANY . . .      NOW I THINK IT'S TIME FOR THE GREETZ:       - GORFY OF HCD -  I WANT TO HEAR YOUR NICE SONGS, SO PLEASE SEND ME A TAPE   - ELF OF HCD - INSPIRATION IS BACK ??? .   - SKUTT OF HCD - STILL DRINKING ALL DAY.   - CORRUPTOR OF HCD - MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.   - INM8 OF HCD - BANANAPLAY IS VERY NICE, I WANT THE FINAL VERSION OF 2.0 NOW.    - PINHEAD OF HCD - HOW CAN YOU PAINT SO AWESOME?!   - GUS OF HCD - NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO TRADE.   - PB OF NOVA - HOW IS LIFE GOING...   - METZ - NICE TALKING TO YOU.   - BAD KARMA - HOW IS YOUR TRADING GOING? HOPE YOU START YOUR BBS SOON.                    - QUIZ - SELL YOUR PC AND BUY AN AMIGA SO YOU CAN LIVE AGAIN                        NOW PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE SCROLLER END                            

HI THERE!  I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME YOU TO THIS VERY FIRST, BUT HOPEFULLY NOT LAST, MUSIC DISK BY HARDCORE DESIGN, RELEASED IN THE BEGINNING OF 1994! IT'S BEEN OUR AIM TO CREATE A MUSIC DISK CONTAINING TUNES WITH HIGH QUALITY AND VARIATION, SOMETHING YOU CAN KEEP RETURNING TO . . .   AS USUAL, IT'S UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHETHER WE'VE SUCCEEDED OR NOT, BUT I PERSONALLY THINK IT HAS TURNED OUT TO BE A DECENT COLLECTION OF VARIOUS STYLES.          (SO?! WHO AM I TO SAY THIS, I HEAR YOU CRY!)  WELL. . .   I'M AN AMIGA MUSICIAN WHO'S BEEN USING ALL KINDS OF TRACKERS OVER THE YEARS. MOST OF US KNOW THAT THE VERY FIRST TRACKER, SOUNDTRACKER V1.0, WAS RELEASED A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. ANYHOW, I DISCOVERED IT ON ONE OF THE DISKS INCLUDED WITH MY FIRST A500, AND SINCE THEN I'VE KEPT COMPOSING USING THOSE TRACKERS, JUST LIKE HUNDREDS OF OTHER AMIGA MUSICIANS I GUESS. . .      NOWADAYS, I'M OF COURSE USING PROTRACKER, LIKE MOST OTHER PEOPLE. SADLY, MY ONLY REAL EQUIPMENT TODAY IS MY SAMPLER AND MY ONLY SYNTH,  A KORG M1. BECAUSE OF THIS, MY TUNES OF TODAY USUALLY CONSIST OF SOME M1 SAMPLES, SOME CD-SAMPLES AND SOME 01/W-SAMPLES (GORFY'S GOT A KORG 01/W).   WELL THEN, HOW'S MY MUSIC TASTE?   FIRST OF ALL, I WANT TO STATE THAT I HAVE VERY LITTLE UNDERSTANDING FOR THE EVERGROWING FLOW OF TECHNO, RAVE AND HIP-HOP THAT MORE AND MORE INFLUENCES BOTH COMMERCIAL MUSIC AND THE AMIGA SCENE. TO ME, THIS IS IN MOST CASES NOTHING BUT A SIMPLE RHYTM ACCOMPANIED WITH FLANGE NOISES. MUSICAL QUALITY IS SELDOM INVOLVED IN THESE TUNES, AND IF IT IS, IT'S OFTEN IN UNMEASURABLE AMOUNTS ANYWAY. TO BE HONEST, I'M MORE THAN FED UP WITH ALL THOSE PURE TECHNO MUSIC DISKS THAT POP UP FROM EVERY OTHER GROUP, SINCE THE KIND OF TALENT IT TAKES TO COMPOSE A TECHNO TUNE ISN'T WHAT I LOOK UP TO AS A MUSICIAN.   I HOPE YOU DO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS MY VERY PERSONAL OPINION, AND THAT I ONLY INTEND TO SHARE IT, NOT TRANSFER IT TO ANYONE WITH OTHER OPINIONS. MAYBE, A GROUP CALLED 'HARDCORE DESIGN' SHOULD HAVE TECHNO MUSICIANS, BUT NEITHER GORFY NOR ME IS VERY INTERESTED IN THIS PARTICULAR STYLE.   WHAT I LIKE IS SIMPLY MUSIC THAT BRINGS SOMETHING SPECIAL WHEN LISTENING TO IT, MUSIC WITH PERFECTLY CHOSEN CHORDS AND HARMONIES, AND WITH ARRANGEMENTS THAT MOVE YOU IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. OK, THIS IS QUITE SIMPLE, AND QUITE THEORETICAL, BUT IN FACT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT LOTS OF TODAY'S MUSIC LACKS. PHENOMENA'S 'CRYSTAL SYMPHONIES 2' IS PROBABLY THE BEST EXAMPLE OF A MUSIC DISK CONTAINING TRULY WONDERFUL TUNES AND HARMONIES, MY OWN PERSONAL FAVOURITE AMONG AMIGA MUSIC DISKS.       WELL . . . ENOUGH BULLSHIT!           GREETS TO FOLLOW:      FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD LIKE TO GREET ALL MEMBERS OF HARDCORE DESIGN, ESPECIALLY UFO, SKUTT AND GORFY FOR THEIR WORK WITH THIS MUSIC DISK. SECONDLY, I'LL JUST SEND OUT VARIOUS GREETS IN NO REAL ORDER TO:          INM8/HCD - 'I LOVE BANANAPLAY! WHEN WILL WE SEE A RELEASE VERSION?'             PINHEAD/HCD - 'YOUR LATEST GRAPHICS IS FAR FROM EUROCHART QUALITY . . .NOT!'      MR COKE - 'HOW ARE THINGS?'   QUIZ - 'SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?!'   EPITHAL/LED - 'FINALLY IT'S HERE!!'      . . . THE REST OF MY GREETINGS MUST GO TO THE FOLLOWING TALENTED AMIGA MUSICIANS:         NUKE(SPACEMAN) - I HEARD YOU LEFT THE SCENE! SAD, AS YOU WERE THE BEST!            MANTRONIX AND TIP - WHERE HAVE YOU GONE?          . . . AND CONTINOUS GREETS TO GUYS LIKE:   JOGEIR LILJEDAHL, MR.MAN, AUDIOMONSTER, HEATBEAT, JASON, FIREFOX, LIZARD, VINNIE, TRAVOLTA, MOBY, LIZARDKING, DR.AWESOME, INTERPHASE, DEELITE, QUICK . . . AND ANYONE WHO FEELS THEY'RE FORGOTTEN!           IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTACT ME FOR ANY REASON, THEN DON'T HESITATE TO WRITE TO (SPACE TO PAUSE SCROLL):  - SVEN-ERIK CEEDIGH       PYROLAV. 23     181 60  LIDINGO    SWEDEN. -  I PROMISE THAT I'LL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER ALL SERIOUS LETTERS!     OK, SO THAT'S THAT . . .    I'M HONESTLY AMAZED YOU'VE READ THIS FAR WITHOUT FALLING ASLEEP!    NOW TRY ANOTHER SCROLL, CAUSE I'M OFF RIGHT HERE!                          

           - POPIN' UP - WAS MADE DURING THE AUTUMN OF '93. I HAD SOME MAJOR PROBLEMS GETTING THE RIGHT SPEED WITHOUT USING THE 'VBLANK' TIMER. IT TURNED OUT QUITE GOOD, EVEN THOUGH I STILL THINK IT'S SLIGHTLY TOO FAST . . .  ANYHOW, MY AIM WAS TO MAKE A FUNK INSPIRED TUNE WITH A NOT SO PREDICTABLE LEADVOICE. I THINK I SUCCEEDED QUITE WELL, THOUGH THE DIGITAL PIANO CHORDS ARE A LITTLE DULL WITH A RATHER 'WORN OUT' SOUND. THAT'S WHY I ADDED SOME ORGAN CHORDS TO IT. I'VE PUT DOWN -LOTS- OF WORK BEHIND THE FLUTE JAMS TO GET THE RIGHT IMPROVISED SOUND. I ONLY WISH I COULD ADD A BRASS VOICE TO IT ALL, BUT THEN YOU ARE VERY LIMITED WITH THE AMIGAS FOUR VOICE AUDIO.  THE MUTED TRUMPET VOICE CONTAINS SEVERAL SAMPLES TO AVOID THE SOUND YOU GET BY PLAYING A SAMPLE TOO LOW OR HIGH. IT'S HARD TO MAKE THAT SOUND REALISTIC WITH AMIGAS 8-BIT SOUND THOUGH . . . THE FUNKY DRUMS IS PARTSAMPLED AND PUT TOGETHER IN DIFFERENT WAYS TO VARY IT FROM PART TO PART. FINALLY I ADDED SOME CONGAS TO IT AS A FINAL TOUCH . . .   THE TUNE CONTAINS 4 PARTS . . . ONE NORMAL PART WITH THE MUTED TRUMPET. THEN THE COMP CHANGES AND A  COOL FLUTE JAMS OUT FOLLOWED BY A SMALL DRUM JAM WITH CONGAS. AFTER REPEATING THE FIRST PART AGAIN THE FOURTH AND LAST PART ENDS IT ALL. THAT'S NOT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND EHH?    . . . AHHRG, JUST LISTEN AND MAKE YOUR OWN OPINION! . . .                                             

           - TRIP TO OUTLAND - IS ONE OF THE MORE ODD TUNES ON THIS MUSIC DISK. MY AIM WAS TO COMPOSE DRAMATIC MOVIE MUSIC WITHOUT ANY SPECIAL TECHNICAL SOUND. I WANTED TO GET THE RIGHT FEELING!   ALL THE ORCHESTRA SOUNDS WHERE SAMPLED FROM MY KORG 01/W... I'VE DONE A VERSION ON MY SYNTH TOO (I'VE DONE LIKEWISE WITH 'BLUE VIBRATIONS') AND IF YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE THAT ON TAPE DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME...  I WOULD HAVE DONE A LONGER VERSION IF I HAD HAD THE TIME, BUT THE RELEASE DATE OF THE MUSIC DISK WAS GETTING CLOSER... FAST!  I HAVEN'T GOT MUCH MORE TO SAY NOW SO .. ENJOY!          A TRIP TO OUTLAND COULD BE DANGEROUS, SO BEWARE!                                     

            - SOUTH OF SENSE -      THIS TUNE IS BY FAR THE OLDEST ON THIS MUSIC DISK, BEING ABOUT ONE AND A HALF YEAR OLD (!). BECAUSE OF THIS, THE SAMPLES NATURALLY SOUND A LITTLE BIT OLD FASHIONED AND I'M NOT SURPRISED IF YOU HAPPEN TO RECOGNIZE ONE OR TWO. I'VE PROBABLY NEVER WORKED WITH A TUNE SUCH A LONG TIME BEFORE, AND THIS RESULTED IN A QUITE CHANGING TUNE WITH VARIOUS UPS AND DOWNS IN TERMS OF INSPIRATION. I HAD THIS BASIC IDEA FROM WHICH I STARTED, BUT AS TIME PASSED, I KEPT ADDING NEW IDEAS AND PARTS, MAKING THE FINAL VERSION QUITE ENJOYABLE IN MY OPINION. PERHAPS THE ENTIRETY HAS SUFFERED A BIT FROM ALL THOSE DELAYS, BUT IN GENERAL I CONSIDER THIS TUNE ONE OF MY MOST SUCCESSFUL ONES (MAYBE THAT'S WHY IT'S ON THIS MUSIC DISK!?). IT IS HOWEVER POSSIBLE THAT THE LENGTH COULD HAVE BEEN SOMEWHAT REDUCED, BUT I DOUBT SOMEONE WILL CALL IT MONOTONOUS!? AS FOR THE SAMPLES, THEY WERE GATHERED FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES. I'VE SAMPLED THE CHORDS FROM MY KORG M1, BUT THE MAJORITY OF THE OTHER SAMPLES WERE UNFORTUNATELY BORROWED FROM OTHER MUSICIANS. . .  THIS IS AS SAID BEFORE BECAUSE OF MY LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE AMIGA SCENE WHEN I STARTED TO COMPOSE. I'VE TOTALLY STOPPED RIPPING SAMPLES NOWADAYS!    ANYWAY, I HOPE YOU CAN FIND SOMETHING WORTH LISTENING TO IN THIS TUNE, DESPITE IT'S AGE!                                                          

           - THE STEEL DOME -     BELIEVE IT OR NOT, BUT THIS TUNE, AS WELL AS 'SOUTH OF SENSE', WAS DEVELOPED DURING QUITE A LONG TIME. TO BE HONEST I HARDLY REMEMBER WHEN I STARTED IT, BUT AS I RECALL IT, IT LAY UNTOUCHED FOR SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE I REALLY GOT INTO IT. (SCHOOL SUCKS!) . . . THE STYLE IS ACTUALLY NOT VERY ORIGINAL, BUT I DO HAVE WORKED HARD TO MAKE IT SOUND GOOD, TRYING TO PUT IN AS MANY EXCITING HARMONIES AS POSSIBLE. THE LENGTH, 7.44 MINUTES, MAY SOUND TERRIFYING, BUT IF YOU LISTEN TO IT YOU'LL HEAR IT HAS LOTS OF VARIATION, ALTHOUGH SOME PARTS ARE INDEED BETTER THAN OTHERS. THE SAMPLES WERE MOSTLY TAKEN FROM MY ONE AND ONLY SYNTH, KORG M1, ALTHOUGH SOME DRUM SAMPLES ARE BOTH FROM A CD CALLED 'SONIC DRUMS' AND FROM THE INTRO OF GENESIS'  I CAN'T DANCE . . .   WELL, WHAT'S MORE TO SAY? JUST LIKE 'SOUTH OF SENSE' THIS TUNE ENDED UP LONGER THAN EXPECTED, AND RATHER FULL OF VARIOUS PARTS THAT MAY NOT APPEAR TO EXIST FOR THE ENTIRETY. ANYHOW, THIS IS MY SECOND LATEST TUNE, AND I'M SATISFIED MYSELF, SO. . . WHAT'S MISSING IS REALLY FOR YOU TO FIND IT INTERESTING!                                                   

           AFTER CONSTANTLY LISTENING TO BLUES MUSIC FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS I DECIDED TO COMPOSE - BLUE VIBRATIONS - . . . THAT WAS ABOUT ONE YEAR AGO BUT I STILL THINK THE TUNE IS VERY GOOD AND DESERVES BEING ON THIS MUSIC DISK. I TRIED TO FOLLOW THE TYPICAL BLUES PATTERN WHEN I COMPOSED IT. BLUES IS, IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW, BASED ON A CERTAIN PATTERN USED IN ALMOST ALL KINDS OF BLUES. I HOPE I SUCCEEDED, BUT THAT'S UP TO YOU. I HEREBY SEND OUT A BIG 'THANK YOU' TO ELF FOR HELPING ME FIND SOME GOOD BLUES CHORDS . . . THE SAMPLES ARE MOSTLY TAKEN FROM THE KORG M1. THE DRUMSAMPLES ARE SAMPLED FROM A CD.   THE ONLY THING I'M NOT SATISFIED WITH IS THE QUITE BORING END OF IT ALL. THE TUNE JUST ENDS! WHAT I WANTED WAS AN OUTFLIPPED TOTAL MEGAJAM UNTIL IT WAS FINALLY FINISHED. THAT WOULD HAVE INCREASED THE LENGTH OF THE TUNE QUITE A BIT THOUGH...    ENJOY THE SAXOPHONE AND PIANO LEADS!                                                

           - GROOVE YARD -    WELL WELL . . . YOU'VE FOUND YOUR WAY TO MY LATEST WORK. THIS TUNE IS THE ABSOLUTE OPPOSITE TO MY TWO OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS TO THIS MUSIC DISK WHEN IT COMES TO DELAYS. WE HAD THE PLANS ALL SET FOR THIS MUSIC DISK AND I HAD ONE MORE TUNE TO COMPOSE. SO I STARTED FROM SCRATCH WITH SOME CHORDS AND A TINY BIT OF INSPIRATION EXACTLY ONE WEEK BEFORE 'THE PARTY 3' WHERE WE WERE SUPPOSED TO RELEASE THIS PIECE OF HARD WORK. PROBABLY THANKS TO SOME SPARE TIME DUE TO THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY, INSPIRATION CAME BACK TO ME AND I SPENT MOST OF THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS TO FINISH THE TUNE. MY ORIGINAL AIM WAS TO CREATE A FUNK-INSPIRED TUNE TO MAKE A CONTRAST TO MY OTHER TWO TUNES ON THIS MUSIC DISK. EVENTUALLY, AFTER APPROXIMATELY ONE WEEK OF HARD WORK, I HAD IT FINISHED. THE ORIGINAL IDEA WAS TO MAKE SOME KIND OF PIANO ARRANGEMENT, IN ORDER TO STRIVE FOR A REALISTIC PIANO SOUND. THE INTRO TURNED OUT QUITE NICE, SO I ADDED A SET OF DRUMS, A REGULAR BASS LINE AND SOME LEADS, CONSISTING OF A SAXOPHONE AND AN ORGAN.       THE SAMPLES WERE SAMPLED (AS ALWAYS!) FROM MY KORG M1, AND FROM A COUPLE OF CD'S.  YOU'RE NOW LISTENING TO THE RESULT, WHICH I MYSELF THINK IS ONE OF THE BETTER TUNES I'VE COME UP WITH. POSSIBLY, THE LEAD VOICES COULD HAVE BEEN SLIGHTLY IMPROVED, BUT IN WHOLE I'M SATISFIED ENOUGH. I'D LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CRITICIZE THE WEIRD JURY AT THE MUSIC COMPETITION AT 'THE PARTY 3', WHO TURNED DOWN THIS TUNE ALONG WITH AT LEAST A DOZEN OF OTHERS FROM SOME OF THE MOST TALENTED MUSICIANS OF THE SCENE! I STILL WONDER WHAT REALLY HAPPENED BACK THERE, AND THE CONCLUSION I'VE COME TO IS THAT THEY MUST HAVE PICKED SOME AWFULLY TONE DEAF PEOPLE FOR THE JURY . . . OR HOW ELSE DO YOU EXPLAIN THE FACT THAT ALMOST HALF OF THE TUNES THAT WERE PLAYED WERE EITHER PURE RAW TECHNO OR SOME OTHER WEIRD TRANCE-STUFF?! PERHAPS I SHOULDN'T, BUT I REALLY CAN'T RESIST TO CONGRATULATE MR.AXEL OF BRAINSTORM FOR HIS EXCELLENT COMPO CONTRIBUTION! GREAT WORK, AXEL! JUST DOWN THE DRAIN WITH IT!   EHRM . . . SO, I THINK I'VE SAID ENOUGH. HOPEFULLY SOMEONE OUT THERE WILL FIND THIS TUNE WORTH LISTENING TO FOR SOME REASON . . .                                

OH, I GET TO WRITE MY OWN SCROLL...  OTHER MUSICIANS' SCROLL TEXTS FOR THESE KIND OF MUSIC DISKS ARE EITHER CUDDLY TESTIMONIALS BY THEIR PARTNERS OR NOSTALGIC RECITALS OF THE COMPOSERS' CHILDHOOD DREAMS OF BECOMING A FAMOUS MUSICIAN. HERE YOU WILL GET NEITHER. (AS BERKE BREATHED WOULD HAVE SAID.) I CAN'T RECALL MYSELF AS A KID RUNNING AROUND WANTING TO BE A GREAT MUSICIAN! ANYWAY, NOW I'M 17 YEARS OLD AND A MUSICIAN (WITHOUT THE WORD 'GREAT'!) AND I CAN'T PICTURE MYSELF WANTING TO DO ANYTHING ELSE THAN MUSIC, WHICH MY TEACHERS IN CLASS CAN'T UNDERSTAND! :-)  ON THIS MUSIC DISK YOU WILL FIND THREE TUNES COMPOSED AND ARRANGED BY ME. LISTEN TO THEM AND MAKE YOUR OWN OPINION! I CAN'T INFLUENCE YOUR TASTE BY WRITING ABOUT MY INSPIRATION SOURCES OR MY EXCITING AND VARIOUS LIFE! IF I GET A NEW MUSIC DISK I DON'T WANT TO READ THAT THE COMPOSER'S HOBBIES, WHEN NOT COMPOSING, ARE SWIMMING AND ORDERING EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS FROM TV-COMMERCIALS... I WANT TO READ WHAT HE (PROBABLY NOT SHE SADLY ENOUGH!) HAS DONE, WHY AND HOW HE'S DONE IT! IT'S TOO MUCH BULLSHITTING TO BE HONEST! THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T GET INFO ABOUT THE COMPOSER! IT'S JUST TOO FUCKING MUCH INFO! (AT THIS POINT IN THE SCROLLER I CAN REVEAL THAT I HAVE A HABIT OF PICKING MY NOSE IN PUBLIC PLACES!) :-)...  I WILL NEITHER REVEAL MY THOUGHTS OF HOW TO SAVE THE ENVIROMENT!!   NOW YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK SO I'LL SEND OUT MY GREETINGS JUST ABOUT HERE... (I'M NOT AGAINST LOOONG GREETING MESSAGES THOUGH, EVEN IF THEY CAN GET VERY LONG SOMETIMES! DON'T WORRY, MINE WON'T!) GREETINGS GO, FLY AND SAIL OUT TO:  ELF (I HAVE TO GIVE YOU A BIG THANX FOR SUPPORTING ME!), UFO (WITHOUT YOU THE CODE WOULD HAVE LOOKED ROTTEN!), SKUTT (YOUR GFX IS GREAT!), EVERYBODY ELSE IN HCD (ESPECIALLY DOC.TROTYL COS' HE WANTED TO HAVE A SPECIAL GREETING!), SUNESTUDS (WE SURE HAD FUN AT NEW YEARS EVE!), STENE (LET'S GET TOGETHER AND BREAK SOME MORE DRIVES SHALL WE!?), NIGHTSHADE (YOU WANT A CERTAIN TAPE FROM ME, DON'T YOU!?), SILVER (I'M GONNA BURN YOUR PICASSO JUST TO SEE YOU CRY!), MR.COKE (HOW ARE YOU DOIN'?), JEPPE (HAVE YOU BOUGHT A CD AND CLOTHES YET?? HE, HE..), GUS (I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN YOU! GIMME YOUR MODEM NOW!!), JOCKE (BURN, DRINK, SMOKE, DESTROY!), VIKING (CHANGE YOUR HANDLE OR LEAVE THE SCENE! IF YOU EVER ENTERED IT!) AND FINALLY ALL THE GALS IN THE H AND M COMMERCIAL, EVER...   THE LIST COULD BE LONGER BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER ALL OF YOU AND I PROMISED TO KEEP IT SHORT!...  A BIG HI TO:  OPUS, PORTNOY, HODGE, BINKLEY, MILO, BILL, OLIVER, STEVE AND ALL THE OTHERS IN BLOOM COUNTY AND OUTLAND!!       IF YOU LIKE, DISLIKE, HATE, ADORE MY MUSIC OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON WANT TO CONTACT ME, WRITE A LETTER AND PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE ADDRESSED TO: JONAS DAHLGREN    LILJE V. 24   186 94   VALLENTUNA     SWEDEN        AND DON'T FORGET THE STAMP... :-)...     NOW I'M OUT!                           

TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ONE OF THE MUSICIANS BEHIND THIS MUSIC DISK, FOR JUST ABOUT ANY REASON AT ALL, WRITE TO: (SPACE TO PAUSE SCROLLER)   ELF:  - SVEN-ERIK CEEDIGH,    PYROLAV. 23,  181 60,  LIDINGO,  SWEDEN -  OR GORFY: - JONAS DAHLGREN,   LILJEV. 24,   186 94,  VALLENTUNA,  SWEDEN -    IF YOU WRITE TO ME (ELF) I'LL PROMISE AN ANSWER TO EVERY SERIOUS LETTER. MUSICIANS ARE OF COURSE THE MOST WARMLY WELCOMED, BUT WE DEFINITELY WILL READ ALL LETTERS SERIOUSLY. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU CARE FOR SERIOUS MODULE SWAPPING, DON'T HESITATE . . . WRITE NOW!
