about

This is a re-mastered collection of retro digi-music I made on the Atari ST between 1988 and 1992.

"Back In The Day" in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the Atari ST was enjoying its peak, everyone I knew who owned one (whether they had any musical skill or not) had a go at creating tunes using the packages available.

I chose a program called "Quartet" which allowed the creation of 4 channel 'Digi-sound' using standard musical notation to input notes.
It was one of the 1st 'Digi-music' packages for the Atari ST and became very popular.

These are the tunes I made as a teenager.

Corny and dated, of course, but maybe they provide a glimpse of the musical styles and sounds popular at the time.

I hope you enjoy them.

about

Tufty UK

I've been interested in making music on the ZX Spectrum and Atari ST since the mid 1980s.

During the late 1980s and early 1990s I made quite a few tunes and demos on the Atari ST.

These days I'm very much enjoying a musical renaissance making 1-bit music using vintage computers as instruments.
