SOUNDSHOCK is back to conclude the FM FUNK trilogy. FM FUNK NIRVANA!! brings you 16 new tracks by 19 uniquely talented musicians, from four different continents, using an arsenal of 17 different hardware and software FM synthesizers.

Although this release marks the end of the series, our hope is that we’ve inspired listeners and musicians enough to carry our message further, and to keep reinventing FM funk for decades to come! "That is", in the words of Tsuyoshi Shimokura, "not a sad thing." No indeed; rather, we believe this calls for celebration: let’s get it started!

Still Flying is the first album that started it all. It was written during 2002 on a real ZX Spectrum in Pro Tracker 3 music editor. The album tagline is "lyric music novels".

About 1,5 years later it was also released as an executable ZX musicdisk. Coded by Vortex, graphics by Schafft and packed by Poisoned CyberJack.


"My Mind is Free" was originally written for CAFe 2002 demoparty and released as "My mind free" due to lack of language knowledge. It was included in the album right after the competition. "My Mind is Free" reached 13th place in ZX Spectrum AY Music compo.


"Lonely Soul" wasn't originally included in the album, but it was written during the same period of time and shares the style and direction as the rest of the album. It also participated in Paradox 2002 demoparty, where it took 2nd place in ZX Spectrum AY Music compo.

The Blossoming Years is an album by MmcM, who is one of the most prominent musicians to come out of the Russian ZX Spectrum demoscene. A compilation of 18 tracks from 1999-2001 shows the musician at the peak of creative powers and easily explains the cult following that he enjoys in the homeland.

The executable version of the album is made for an ultimate listening experience on a 48K ZX Spectrum with an AY8912 add-on or on any classic model with 128K of RAM. Some popular Russian-made clones are also supported.

Hey guys,

Having habitually kept almost all of my sketches and takes throughout the creation process, I decided to combine the most notable ones into a series of The Untold Preschtales (thanks to elhuesudoii for the title). So, let's start with “Preschtale, Part 4”!

Thanks, man! I really hope I can deliver some cd/merch in future, but honestly, I really don't know how soon it will be available. It might take a while. I made a request for some great merch-company, but got no response from them, so I guess they're not interested. But, definitely, as soon as I'll have something, I'll share the news about it.

"Diad" will guide you through the spiritual graveyard, transcending both time and space. Set in the 1930s, Dimension-Reversing Dualities takes you on a journey within the life of a depressed suicidal housewife and the outcome of her untimely death.


Diad is a duo of Heosphoros and Tadpole.

Heophoros aka François Martin is from Moncton, New-Brunswick, Canada. He is already known for his parts in Ubiktune compilation albums, such as “Up” and “Noisechan & Nugget: Adventures in Chiptunes”. Being a fan of various genres, he focuses on progressive and metal elements in his compositions. Heosphoros has been composing NES music for over 8 years for now and “Diad” is his third album effort, continuing the path of previously released original “Embered Recollections” and collection of covers on “Beneath The Skin”.

Tadpole is Joel Barker, from Bellevue, Washington, USA. He has been composing chipmusic over the last 10 years. Known for his trademark clear, relaxing and very detailed sound, Tadpole was able to branch out and unite it with shaking metal-inspired elements, provided by Heosphoros. This project is his first dedicated-album release to date.


Composed by Tadpole and Heosphoros
