Parallelogram is a demo running on the Commodore One extender
board, which contains an Altera Cyclone III FPGA and an SDRAM chip. The logic
design was made from scratch, including a homebrew CPU, FM synth and blitter
with pixel shader support. The demo won the wild compo at Revision 2012. Read more.

Phasor, like Craft, is a demo running on a custom
minimalistic ATmega88-based demo platform. But it generates a composite video
signal (PAL) instead of
a VGA signal. Read more.

I am very grateful to Barta Zoli from Hungary,
for building a replica of Phasor, making
a high quality video capture and allowing me to share it with you on this site
(and on youtube). Read more.

The bitbuf is a portable 8-bit minimalistic
live looping machine. Designed as a tool for chip music improvisation and live
performances, it aims to provide a set of simple yet versatile features. It's a
work in progress, but I've made a prototype which is already quite functional
and enjoyable to work with. Read more.

Normally, when you create a chiptune, you start with an
existing chip (such as the SID chip or
the YM2149) and write a tune for it. We decided to start from scratch, and
create a chip and a tune. Read more.

In an attempt to squeeze as much emotion as possible
into a tiny chip, I managed to fit Camille Saint-Saëns' The Swan into
480 (out of 1024) bytes of ROM on an ATtiny15. The microcontroller runs at
1.6 MHz and provides 32 bytes of RAM (actually registers). Read more.

Turbulence is the successor of craft. It's a
microcontroller demo based on the Propeller chip from Parallax.
External I/O consists of stereo sound (at line level) and a VGA signal.
