2014
Name of Song: Heavy Storm
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:00mins
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 23rd March 2014

General information: I had a tight deadline to write a tune for the Forever 2014 party - although I was too busy working on other things, including Honey Bee. This sound track is a trance style tune, inspired by the Trance Sector loading tune. I tried to immitate some of the instruments that were used in Goat Tracker, in DMC V5.0+, but the result turned out completely different. This tune made it to 11th out 12th place at Forever 2014 party. Best heard on a C64C with 8580 SID :)







2011

Name of Song: 2000 Kung Fu Maniacs Music V1
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: Varied
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 24th August 2011

General information: I rewritten the instruments in DMC V5.0+ from scratch specially for this game. However the bad news was that the tune didn't suit the game whatsoever, because the theme was more too serious. So I decided to work on a ninja style and more fun tune to suit the game.So rather than put this into the wastebin, I have decided to share the ninjaesque dance tune with you all instead. There are 2 main tunes and 1 jingle in which you can listen to and enjoy. :o)





2010

Name of Song: Bum Bottom Bassline
Composer: Bassline Benny
Duration: Constant
Music Editor Used: DMC V1.2
Date of release: 24th August 2011 (Written in 2010)

General information: A very annoying bassline(esque) tune which would make you either laugh or cry when you hear the bad notes. This tune was originally made for an old Shoot Em Up Construction Kit game, which I added, but the game never got released with the tune on it. Oh dear. So we have unearthed this deadly and dreadful thing known as a racket on to this page.  ;)

Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:30
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0

Name of Song: Frontpage 18 Remix
Composer: Richard Bayliss (Original by Guy Shavitt)
Duration: 1:44
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0
Date of release: 14th November 2009

General information: After hearing the original Frontpage 18 track by Guy Shavitt in HVSC, I thought I try and do a DMC version of the same tune. Unfortunately the track does not sound as good as Guy's original, but it is slightly above average and I tried to use his style as much as I could. Unfortunately this does not sound as good as the original. It was fun to compose though.




Name of Song: Cooksey 2009
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:47
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 14th November 2009

General information: After listening to the Ikari Warriors loading tune. I thought I should have a go at trying to do a tune in the style of M.Cooksey. The tune didn't turn out too bad for my first go using this style. DMC sure had the right tools to make the Cooksey style sounds.




Name of Song: The Great Giana Sisters - Castle Remix
Composer: Richard Bayliss (Origina composed by Chris Huelsbeck)
Duration: 3:14
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 13th November 2009

General information: This is a remix of Chris Huelsbeck's castle stage music and was composed this week as a tribute to Armin Gessert, creator of the Great Giana Sisters, who sadly passed away on 8th November 2009. He was the programmer of Great Giana Sisters and also Hard 'n Heavy. Both games of which were published and released by Rainbow Arts in Germany and other places around the world. A fantastic game which C64 fans will play today.




Name of Song: Asteroid Belt
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 5:11
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0
Date of release: 2nd November 2009

General information: This is an atmospheric trance style tune based in time and space. Where you're flying through an asteroid belt. The introduction starts moody and then the heavy techno/trance beats kick in.




Name of Song: Album of Sound Effects (64 Bassline)
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 1:56
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 5th September 2009

General information: I wanted to do some experimenting with making weird sounds. Could this be the first ever Garage/Bassline tune to have hit the Commodore 64? I'm not really impressed with this, whichI made today, feels unfinished and it's another tune for the scrapheap maybe. It's really a job for the real experts :o)



Name of Song: No Trouble
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 4:14
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 5th September 2009

General information: A pretty nice tune I done with DMC V4.0. The instruments were made from scratch and some of the sounds sound a bit like sounds you would have got in Music Mixer V6. The tune has two different melody's crammed in one.




Name of Song:
Hidden Planet
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 4:24
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 9th August 2009

General information: This is a disco style tune I composed using DMC V5.0+. The song was written today, and sounds pretty good if you like my traditional disco style of music. So get on the dance floor.




Name of Song: Not My Day
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:38
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 9th August 2009

General information: Once upon a time on a Tuesday, I had a really bad day at work. Until at the end of the working day, I felt rather stressed, so I decided to dig out the DMC V5.0+ and compose something to make me feel better. Did it make me feel better? Yes, it sure did. This tune never actually got released, apart from on a TND intro. This is the usual traditional Richard Bayliss dance/disco style of tune, which some people would love or hate.



Name of Song:
Time Portal
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:40
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 9th August 2009

General information: This is a tune which I composed yesterday afternoon. It is a moody atmospheric style of music, with some dance style beats.



Name of Song: The Edge of Space
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:00
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 15th March 2009

General information: The tune starts with a C64-style sound of a flying saucer, and then later on it turns into a disco/dance style tune. It is nothing original, but sounds pretty fun. This tune was entered at the Forever 10 party, and made it to an average 6th place, although I think the tune deserved probably a lower position, because of the amount of great tunes there was at that event. Still I am happy with 6th place out of 11 :o)




  2008
Name of Song: Disco Dream
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:52
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 29th December 2007

General information: A typical disco style tune, using the same old recycled DMC instruments of mine. Not a bad tune though, except for the main lead. This track also got entered for the final C64 SID compo at C64.sk




Name of Song: This Way to X-2008 (AKA - The MC Mayhem loader tune)
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:04
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.61
Date of release: 26th October 2008

General information: A nice disco style tune, with better instruments for a change. I was dead impressed with the quality of this nice piece of music. This song was originally entered for the X-2008 music compo, but I was unfortunate to not have been able to enter this tune into the compo, as the organizers disallowed email music submissions this time round. Probably because of the amount of music entries they received. They did enter my demo, Crazy Fish into the compo. The music later got used as the tape loading music for the Mayhem in Monsterland music mix. Glad I found some use for this nice piece of music. I feel that this tune is probably one of my best efforts so far,





Name of Song: Lost in the Amazon
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:48
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.25
Date of release: 18th August 2008

General information: An atmospheric game style of tune. This tune was originally released for the Silesia 2008 party event, but I had some very bad news that the original party disk that had my music entry, along with some other compo entries had unfortunately  got corrupt due to a power cut before the event. Later on, in early 2009 I decided to improve this tune a little and use it for the disk menu of The Last Amazon Trilogy by Psytronik Software. Some of the instruments sort of sound familiar to the ones used in Midnight Resistance for the C64 by Ocean Software.





Name of Song:
Ministry of Noise
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:36
Music Editor Used: DMC V7.0 (It's actually a modified version of DMC V4.0)
Date of release: 11th May 2008

General information: This is a 4xSpeed tune, which I composed using the DMC music editor. It is yet another fast paced techno/trance style of tune, which never got released to any of the party events. I originally composed this tune to kill some time before going to bed :)





Name of Song: War Across the Galaxy
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:45
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 24th February 2008

General information: A space atmospheric disco/dance/trance style of tune, done for the Oxyron party, but for some reason, as well as the Oxyron Party, this tune got released at the KBIT party as well. Seems to be the case where I clicked on the wrong link and emailed it to the wrong place, then afterwards did a fixed disk and resent it through the correct address. Later on in the year, this great piece of music got used as the loading music for Escape from Arth, when I was mastering the tape for the game.
 




2007
Name of Song: Scene Invasion
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 4:30
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 29th December 2007

General information: A nice Italo-disco style tune, but lacks a proper working main lead. It made it 4th place at the TUM 2007 party.



Name of Song: Mix 'Em Up - 64 Style
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:04
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.25
Date of release: 23rd November 2007

General information: Quite a cool tune, it uses some nice filters and some pretty nice, instruments. I tried to come up with a newest style to make my entry really cool, but unfortunately in the SID compo, I blew it again. The SID tune made it 20th place, which was near the bottom. RACKED OFF! :o)




Name of Song: I Saw a Blue Angel
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:04
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.25
Date of release: 9th September 2007

General information: A tune, which is inspired by the title theme tune to the C64 version of Blue Angel by Magic Bytes software, but with some improvisation which I added to the tune. I don't feel all that comfortable using Goat Tracker to make new sounds, because it is more difficult to get the pulse rate and vibrato right. Although this tune sounds cool, the instruments for the main lead sound rather bad.




Name of Song: Summer Time Booze
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: On going ....
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.xx (2SID version)
Date of release: 7th July 2009

General information: A 2 SID tune which was entered at the Silesia Party 2007, and made it to 6th place in the 2Sid compo. Please note, this tune can only be played in WinVice with Stereo SID settings at $D420. We are unable to provide a SidPlay version of this track. Sorry




Name of Song: Snodge's Big Day Out
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:32
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.25
Date of release: 7th July 2007

General information: Cute music, entered at the 2007 Silesia party and it made it to 4th place. Not a bad tune, but yet again, due to feeling uncomfortable at the times creating instruments with Goat Tracker, the main pulse values of the lead spoils it. Ah well.




Name of Song: Dec $D418
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:00
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 12th August 2007


General information: This nice piece of music was entered for the Primary Star 2007 party event and made it to 4th place out of 4, but that did not matter because I had pleasing results with "Racked Off - Party version" which made it 2nd place in the demo compo. This disk also contains the party version of Racked Off!




Name of Song: You Rock the Boat
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:56
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 28th May 2007

General information: A sort of pop style tune, composed for the Maximum Overdose party. Unfortunately, I do not like the main leads used in this track, so later on in 2009, I repaired the instruments so that they would sound much better. The song made it 4th place out of 4. There were only 5 entries, and this song shared the same place as another SID composer.





Name of Song: Dance and Dance
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:11
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 18th March 2007

General information: A fast paced trance style tune released at Forever party 8.

Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 4:04
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.25

Name of Song: Enigmatic Wave
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:19
Music Editor Used: Goat Tracker V2.25
Date of release: March 2007

General information: A fast paced tune, which made it to 2nd place at the Oxyron 15 year party. I was rather pleased with the result. The tune starts techno(ish) and then it changes after a while. This is probably one of my best tunes that I composed using Goat Tracker :)



2006

Name of Song: INC $D418
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 4:14
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 18th December 2006

General information: A tune, which makes use of the instrument fade experiment. Sounds quite okay, but the tune did not do very well with the C64.SK music compo.




Name of Song: Three Points to Go
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:49
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 12th November 2006

General information: Nice happy style disco tune, with a sort of different kind of style added to it. I'm not too sure whether or not this tune actually entered a C64 related competition. Sounds a really nice tune anyway. Enjoy it!





Name of Song: Don't Go Kicking My Dog
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:46
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 7th October 2006

General information: A tune, which I entered for the X2006 music compo. It uses the same instruments and style as the Cronosoft Loader tune, which I originally composed earlier in 2006. Not bad, but not many people liked this tune as it made it to 26th place.





Name of Song: The Vice from Miami
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 1:28
Music Editor Used: Future Composer
Date of release: 5th September 2006

General information: Live back to the old Future Composer days, where in the 1980's you get to hear all those old style jingles, etc. Quite a nice idea, but the modern day C64 listeners didn't like this tune much.  :o)




Name of Song: That Annoying Ringtone
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:50
Music Editor Used: DMC V7.0 (It's actually a modified version of DMC V4.0 really, yes, really!)
Date of release: 6th August 2006

General information: A ding-a-ding-a-ding ... oh, what? Yes, that sure was an annoying ring tone. So I dedicated this song to that. This tune was released at the Primary Star party of 2006 and it made 3rd place, which I was quite happy with. It is one of those type of summer happy hard-core tunes, but done on a Commodore 64 :o)





Name of Song: Forever Ever
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:36
Music Editor Used: JCH Newplayer 4
Date of release: March 2006

General information: My first ever bash at composing something on the JCH new player. I felt that I did pretty well composing on this music editor for the first time ever on the C64. Good music editor, but this does not beat the "Nyaaaah! 11" title tune, which I also composed using the same music editor, but with Laxity's updated music player. Forever Ever once again got released at the Forever party, and made it to 6th place. I was quite happy with that :o)


2005

Name of Song: Wall of Fire
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:46
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0+
Date of release: 5 December 2005

General information: A tune, which I entered for the 2005 C64.SK music compo, but it made it to 19th place out of 25. I don't like the filtered bass or the main lead in this tune much, but I entered the tune to the compo anyway. And blew it as always.






Name of Song: Glide Away
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 2:52
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.1
Date of release: 20th September 2005

General information: Here is a C64 style dance/trance tune I came up for the Bronx 7D5 party. The tune made it to 3rd place and was inspired from the Glider Rider music on the C64 by David Whittaker. :o) I liked the original music. :o)





Name of Song: Wasting Raster Time
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:12
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 20th March 2005

General information: A trance style tune which I came up with as my latest weapon for the Forever 5 party. The beginning of the song may sort of familiar. You'll be thinking that this track could be a BBE cover (Seven Days and One Weekend), but it is actually not. This track is one of my very own compositions, which I hoped would do really well at the party. It came 5th Place, which was pretty good :)




2004

Name of Song: Lost Again
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:04
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0
Date of release: 5th December 2004

General information: The name says it all. It was another entry for the C64.SK SID compo. Actually this tune did sort of deserve to lose, because I didn't like the instruments and filtered sounds much. And I still don't today :o(

Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:01
Music Editor Used: DMC V4.0

Name of Song: Twice the Delight
Composer: Richard Bayliss
Duration: 3:52
Music Editor Used: DMC V5.0
Date of release: 4th November 2002

General information: This was my attempt at trying a different style. It is not actually hard-core bassline, but an attempt at doing a hardcore drum 'n bass style of tune using the DMC V4.0. This tune never got released, until now. To be honest, I don't really like it. Let's see what everybody else thinks of this poor tune. Yo, yo, yo! :o)
