Amazing 1980s VHS Macintosh and MIDI documentary!

There’s a lot of these old vids surfacing on youtube these days, but this is definitely one of the coolest ones I’ve seen.

I love Herbie Hancock’s song on here “Little by Little” I can’t seem to find it anywhere. If anyone knows if this is actually on a release of his anywhere, let me know!

Dancy break-up song with an 80s vibe and a modern touch!

It’s time for a Demonic Sweaters original track! This song is called Sculpted View and was written, recorded and performed in its entirety by me. It is about when you trust somebody and think you know them, but turns out you don’t! The video was shot entirely on VHS! Here’s the lyrics:

I found you

and held you up in a sculpted view

you loved me

and proved me right

no matter the truth

and now my thoughts are changing, and maybe thinking that you don’t care

maybe never did

without an ounce of honesty

or a shred of decency

you crushed my truth

but I know inside you’re hurt

and there’s nothing but bloody dirt

trying to escape your pain

If you like the song, get it on itunes, spotify, google music, etc…

1980 track by track video of making music for Urusei Yatsura! (Classic Anime)

from アナログシンセサイザーを作って弾くテレビ

“Making scene from animation Urusei Yatsura’s BGM.

Around 1980, I composed BGM of TV animation “Urusei Yatsura”.
In this video, I played “Urusei BGM (Title=Sore Ike Yare Ike Dai Tsuiseki 1)” with analog synthesizer in real time.

Part 1 : Rhythm (Roland CR-78 & SH-2)

Part 2 : Bass & Chord (YC-45D)
YC-45D has many effects… First I used Vibraphone preset. Then change preset and used Fuzz chord sound with auto Wah effect. Left hand still play Bass manual keyboard.

Part 3 : Sequencer (Casio VL-5)
VL-5 is curious keyboard! It has bar cord reader pen. This pen can read accompaniment phrase from printed book.

Part 4 : Melody (Roland SH-2 & Promars)
I changed 2 VCO’s interval of Promars (look annotation).
