It has finally arrived. The long awaited, many times postponed 6th release in the Sound of SceneSat series of compilation albums is here! And it was well worth the wait, 73 fresh tracks in a great variety of styles await their discovery through you, the trusty listener. Head over to the tracks section of my site to find my own contribution, a spiritual rocking guitar track with real Bouzouki parts, performed live by Carol Ink, and a transverse flute that adds a sophisticated exotic feel.
Happy New Year everyone! Back in 2011 I created a handful of track remakes based on the Amiga computer Game Rodland, and recently people asked me where these could be downloaded from. Then I realized they were no longer available on my website, apparently I forgot to re-add them some years ago.
But now I have, and you can finally download them over in the Remakes section again. I also included a new remake I made, the Great Fairy song. The only track still missing to complete the Rodland album is the Boss Stage music, which I yet have to finish.
2021 only just started, more updates and new tracks will follow!
When my former website domain name was stolen a few years ago, a lot of music disappeared with it and the new website remained in cryostasis for quite a while. I am finally re-adding the missing content and you’ll be able to download and listen to many of my former tunes and remakes once again. SunSpire Audio is alive! 🙂
After more than a year without any significant site updates (because I was either too busy or lazy or both), I am slowly bringing this place back to life. Some of you may recall that my former domain ‘sunspire-records dot com’ was lost when my former domain provider’s company I had been registered at for over ten years suddenly folded and left no trace on the web. In an attempt to recover my domain, and have it transferred elsewhere, it was ultimately lost and hijacked by another third-party company who is now charging a ridiculous sum of money for it. It was time to move on, and I found my new home at ‘sunspire dot audio’, which is a much cooler domain anyhow! However I kept my independent label’s name intact, it is still known as ‘SunSpire Records’ and will be in the foreseeable future. Besides hosting all of my track and album releases, the label is also used as the backbone identity for the ongoing Nordlicht series of Demoscene Parties which some of my friends and I are organizing each year.
Some stuff that is happening in the real life: I have successfully finished my Abitur in June this year and I am now studying Music Science as well as English Speaking Cultures and Language at the University of Bremen, something I would have been unable to imagine only half a year ago! Crazy! It is like I started a totally different chapter in my life yet again and it is both thrilling and worrying at the same time. There are of course a lot of cool new people to meet, although I could not help feeling lost every now and then when I become aware that over two third of all students seem to be over ten years younger than myself. And I miss talking to friends who I had not been in touch with apart from the occasional “Hi!” ever since I left the UK in 2010. It would actually be super nice to hear more from you guys again, seriously! I mean, not just on a boring FB status page but actual words in a real conversation!
To summarize the above: Although the site has been in a poor state for a long time, a lot of work actually happened behind the curtains and I am now finally pushing out more news to give you something exciting to look forward to again. Want proof? Take a look at my shiny new album releases, for instance!
I am finally finding the time to get this place back into shape. And soon the website will be filled with fresh content, new music and more.
