DUBCRT Commodore 64 Cartridge

DUBCRT JAM Published on Aug 18, 2016 goto80

"defMON-jams in the jungle, with songs from the DUBCRT.

The video contains four jams after each other, and each jam uses only a vanilla C64 and a delay pedal. Nothing was rehearsed, so you might hear a mistake or two. Or a feature or three."

"DUBCRT Commodore 64 Cartridge (PAL only)

DUBCRT is a music album, interactive light synthesizer and remix gadget released as a Commodore 64 cartridge. With music and visuals from some of the most prolific experimentalists of the 8-bit scenes, DUBCRT taps into 1960s modernist forms, 1970s dub, 2000s glitch aesthetics, and 2020s sustainable computing. DUBCRT features:

• Eight songs ranging from ambient to IDM and drum n’ bass
• Visualisers that react to the music, and that are user-controllable
• A secret remix module that allows you to re-interpret all the music on the cartridge

All of this uses only 64 kilobytes – equivalent to 1.5 seconds of MP3-audio. This is possible thanks to clever use of resources, and by making all the graphics in PETSCII, the colourful and quirky ASCII-variant of the Commodore 64."
