Princess Pangolin’s cover of the Flaming Lips’ “Yoshimi vs.The Pink Robots,” featuring omnichord, violin and telephone. Also, some hasty stop motion. No robots were harmed in the making of this video. Featuring Julie Carpenter on vox, violin & omnichord, and Dain Luscombe on Commodore 64, Kitten & other technological marvels. Album available from
The iridescent SammichSid. Inside there’s 2 6580 SID chips from Commodore 64s. Depending on the angle of the light, the SammichSid’s color is purple, blue or gold. Mix those colors and sounds well with an Elektron Octatrack and you get a blend of old and new.
I modded this Commodore C64 by putting a MSSIAH Cartridge, 6 pots and 2 switches in it.
4 pots are for the MSSIAH Software, 1 for Volume and 1 for a Feedback Loop I built in it.
Maybe in the future I will give this thing a nice painting or a new housing and of course pot knobs

100% Rhythm Core Alpha. This time I used the lo-fi sounds (mainly Square, Saw and C64 samples) and tried to assemble retro tunes whith many tones and some arpeggio sounds, which personally remind me of my Game Boy childhood. Are you a Lo-Fi Johnny, too?
Amazing: You can play all your patterns (blocks) in realtime and even change the key/mode of your created tunes automatically. LIVE !!!
Thank you very much again for this awesome DSiWare release and keep up the good work, SoftEgg!!!
