To fully comprehend the the force that drives OxygenStar (Carl Peczynski), one must travel back in time to ‘96 when MTV was still playing music. Inspired by Michael J Fox’s performance during the ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ dance, Carl was immediately drawn to the sound of an electric guitar. From that day forward, Carl developed an ongoing interest in other instruments, such as piano and the drumset. Self-taught and just out of high school, he took to working on solo electronic projects. By the year 2000, OxygenStar quickly became the most important adventure of Carl’s musical pursuit and has grown far too large to be contained in his apartment.

/c64Chiptunes are within a genre of computer-generated music , which is characterized by a distinctive sound. Its origin lies in the home computer - and video games era. The original chip tunes from records that the sounds through sound chips of - - by today's standards quite simple synthesizers are generated and output, which generate the corresponding sounds in real time. Is the legendary SID chip of the Commodore C64 . The term chiptune was in the Amiga scene knows where, with the help of trackers, music and sound samples generated by each instrument. Compositions that attempted the style and tone of sound chips to maintain, were designated as chiptune to them by the classical mod files to differ. To this end, very short samples or defined note loops used.
Chiptunes have the advantage that the generated files will remain very small and therefore find use in demos and intros from the demo scene and cracktros of release groups from the warez scene, in which it is important to use as little disk space.

True chiptunes still stand in a niche outside of techno , electro , industrial and others, but often to remember these genres. Even compared to ringtones is bordered from the scene and asked not to be taken in connection therewith. To make the claim that modern music with trackers with vocal samples and effects go far beyond that.
Some see the tuner chip technology and techno-wave in the 1990s merely a result of their work, an inflation of their earlier work and the degeneration of the original chiptunes for the mass taste, although some have also found success there.

Characteristic of chiptunes is the rare occurrence of actual polyphonic chords in the classical sense. In Chiptunes chords are usually about arpeggios formed to save tracks. This restriction is based on the fact that the first sound chips could play rarely more than three sound channels in parallel - to play a chord would often occupied all the available channels. Because of these "voices scarcity" have many tunes a very complex structure. In order to give sound more than just three instruments, the gaps in a melody, for example, the bass will be used to let there be heard a different instrument or an accompanying voice. Therefore located on a canal two or more melodies or voices. This technique lends itself to it, using rhythms with many early elements. In the field of SID Tunes has such a very funky style developed.
Another technique is to incorporate more voices, often on the channel, where the bass and drums are heard. Before the individual bass tones for a fraction of a second noise is set. This creates the impression of a kind of hi-hat on a drum kit. Examples of this style are at the High Voltage SID Collection (see link below) to see the composer Mitch & Dane.
A related genre is the Bitpop .

By lifting the limit of modern channel tracker is available for tech-savvy composers now largely no more restrictions. Compared to proprietary formats such as MP3 , no compression artifacts. Comparable echo and reverb effects provide only lossless formats.
Through any mix of self-defined notes and instruments - unlike even the MIDI format - (assuming phonetic skills) and the possibility of even simple samples to human voices revalue can theoretically each composed polyphonic piece of music even today as Mod realize.
Working on an MP3-to-mod converter to fail, however, usually because the computer already played the instruments and samples can not be clearly defined. Provided that the orchestra performed compositions, however, notes there is an exact rebuild as a mod just a matter of time invested in it.
