about

This is a compilation with most of my chiptune music created for so many years, since 1988 till nowadays, with a ZX Spectrum 128k home computer. Some tracks have been beautified to give the sound the right seriousness they deserve.

You can find both compositions of my own as lots of arrangements from other artists' works. All of them were made just for fun or even experimenting with another sounds, always related with this classic computer of the 80s.

In recent days, my music has been used for several ZX Spectrum homebrew videogames, many times requested from other friends and developers. See tracks description to read more about them.

released April 16, 2017

In every track I've specified, if applicable, about who's the original composer of the song, arrangements and other stuff to be mentioned.

All arrangements were made using ZX-Spectrum related software: BASIC language for 128K computers (lots of PLAY commands...), Beepola v1.06.01 (this is a music tool capable to make 48K music with different engines) and the versatile WYZtracker from RetroWorks.

Except for Azul Y Negro that gave me a white card for "No Tengo Tiempo" of theirs, other artists can argue me for removing or disabling those tracks they think should not be here, in spite of being fan covers.

Before shooting the artist I think I am, ask first...

about

Neil Parsons Spain

I'm an 'afficionado' of vintage console and computer games. I like music in most of its genres, too, but what I like most is creating it or arranging whatever it makes me feel better in my life. For now, my musical adventures run around 8-bit computers, especially the much beloved ZX Spectrum.

I have other interests in music, too, but for now there's nothing else to say.
