I’ve been listening to a rather interesting album this morning — Thoughts That Move, by a Brisbane artist that goes by the name of Hunz. It’s interesting for a number of reasons:
- It’s free to download
- It’s really rather good, if you like electro-pop-type-stuff
- It was recorded during February for the RPM Challenge
- It was produced using Renoise, a modern tracker, and Hunz has posted the Renoise files online for anyone to download and check out
All of my early music was made on a tracker (the legendary OctaMED SoundStudio on my old Amiga), so I’ve been meaning to check out Renoise for a while, especially as it’s one of the few commercial music apps available for Linux. I think I’ll definitely be giving it a spin now.
