This time my Weekly Beats song is kind of #ambient pop? Guitar, vocals, experimentation with processing, different software and synths.. I'm trying out releasing more of my music that's a bit different from my previous material! :) I've always been making loads of different stuff, but I've hesitated to release it as zabutom until know. Anyway.. hope you like it! /z Soundcloud: Weeklybeats:

Back in 2014 I made this remix for Hello World's track "Hawksbill turtle" included as a bonus on their album "II" .. Now they released all the remixes as a separate album, which means it's also available on spotify and bandcamp! :) Had a great time working on this one. Thanks for letting me in on the fun!

I had the honor of participating with my song "megamidines", on the japanese chip music compilation "MIDINIZE 3". It was released on Dec 29 last year on Comic Market (comiket) in Tokyo. If you don't know what that is, it's a huge convention where people go to sell their self-published manga comics, CDs, cosplay and other stuff. That's pretty crazy, since in January I had my factory sounds present at Elektron's latest synth at NAMM Show, the world's largest trade show for music technology, in a totally different corner of the world. Unfortunately at the moment the CD is so 1337 you cannot buy it from outside of Japan, but there should be a version with translated liner notes coming out soon! :) It's the second time I release something in Japan, last time being on intikrec's "GB/VA" released in 2006, which seemed to have made quite an impression. Special thanks to Tanikugu and Akaobi for the opportunity, and extra special thanks to Maggan for letting me borrow his midiNES gear in order to do this!! Also here are the liner notes from Tanikugu about my track: "A seasoned vet of the mod scene based in Sweden. According to the info I have on-hand, he put out a song in XM format circa 2001? but this guy has likely been active long before that. Having mastered all manner of machines and formats, listen to his early works and you're sure to say, "This is chiptune." zabutom's trusty MIDINES is masterfully wielded to present the latest iteration of his sound. My internal VGM programming told me this track was definitely the final boss. And so, here it is, right before the credit roll!" Cheers /z

2018 UPDATE // new song release! Some really exciting stuff going on lately! During 2018, I will participate in the Weekly Beats project, where I will compose and release one song every week of 2018. I see it as an opportunity to share more of what I'm doing, sort of like a musical diary. :) My personal output has been pretty low lately, and I look forward to having my music out there a bit more! So, here's my track made during week 4 called "Remember". Also, I had the honor of making some factory presets for a new synth, the Elektron Digitone released last weekend at NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. I also made a product demo song, "Digitone zetaforce!", a version of my oldie "zeta force" song. I also participated in a japanese chiptune compilation CD called "MIDINIZE 3", which was released during Comiket in Tokyo. More info on how this tune will be available soon, as it's not entirely clear yet ?_? So, somehow I ended up being present in a small way on two of the largest events in the world, in two different corners of the world. mind=blown! Anyway, thank you for listening! :) Cheers, z

๐Ÿ’ฟ Released a new track called "Corpix"! ๐Ÿ’ฟ I feel like this is in the same vein of my recent live set, with a stronger focus on mood/texture than much of my previously released music. Hope you enjoy it, and check out the live set in case you missed it: Cheers, z :)

Hey! I'm really excited to present my first live set as zabutom performed without any gameboys or chiptune gear! :O I had the great honor of performing at Datastorm Party, a demoscene party for strictly retro computers, with a lovely crowd including some of the great legends of the demoscene. Some of who very deeply inspired me to start creating stuff as a young teenager. And there they were in the same room, lending their ears to my latest synthesizer escapades. I can't really find words to express what a strange, wonderful feeling that is. Cheers, z

!!! New song upload !!! I don't do single track releases very often lately - partly because I have loads of stuff that I want to put in bigger releases. But here's one that I'm happy with. It represents a more experimental/electronic side of my music that I keep to myself most of the time. I hope to release more of it! <3

Each participant in the album was given a theme from another musician, mine was "wheel of fortune on amphetamines". Had a lot of fun with this one!
