The C64 and its music is the unquestionable
inspiration for this album. The melodic synth-pop tracks
use a robotic singing voice on top of a mixture of modern
and retro Sid sounds.
Here is Mikron 64's own description
of his album:
"Computer-voices are probably
the most striking feature of Mikron 64. In melodies which
spin around themselves, they sing of loneliness, longing,
love and euphoria. They are always optimistic, slightly
naive, and sometimes not quite serious. The music could
originate from an aged video-game, from a time when the
monitor displayed abstract pictures of geometric figures.
Inspite of their artificiality, the explicitly electronic
sounds -from mainly unfiltered waves and white noise to
the completely synthetically generated vocals- are always
friendly. sys49152 is the first release of Mikron 64, who
lives and works in Hamburg. The album is published as part
of the storage secret sounds."
