January 28, 2014 in Analog Sheep, Music Video, News, YouTube

The music video is produced by me. 3D animations and valuable creative and technical support are supplied by Ugur Engin Deniz.

The general composition of the music video consists some of characteristic Amiga elements.
Leading roles:
• Amiga opening screen asking for a floppy
Kickstart1_3-640x480

• Orange Amiga cursor
Amiga-G-DOS-imlec

• Guru Meditation error screen
GuruMeditation01

Suporting roles:
• AmigaDos screen
Amiga-G-DOS

• Workbench screen
Amiga-G-Workbenchb

In addition to those, scrolling text is placed in order to embrace Amiga cracktro culture. Ugur Engin Deniz, a friend of mine that I shared some early drafts, who is also a video artist suggested to place some Amiga-like animations in order to reflect the feeling of Amiga demos. Then he provided all the 3D animations in the music video.

Most of the elements in the music video is highly coordinated with the music. So some flicker effects and 2D animations are handled frame by frame using a technique similar to stop-motion.

In this 1080p full HD music video, some clips used needed to be resized to 640×480 or 320×240 and resized back to 1920×1440. But video editors were destroying the authentic pixel look because of the bicubic approzimation and smoothing algorithms used for resizing the video. Because of this reason the required clips are exported as individual PNG frames and resized to 640×480 or 320×240 and back to 1920×1440 using Photoshop’s nearest neightbourhood algorithm (1 pixel equals 3 pixels). Then the resulting images are brought back together as video sequences again.

Of course this music video is on a very different style then a video that might have been produced in Amiga. My main intention was to make feel the taste of the Amiga times and share my enthusiasm both with the ones that catch and miss that era.

I hope you watch it with pleasure. Share it, like it if you do so:)

“I Miss My Amiga 500” was first released on 14 January 2013 as a bonus track in Analog Sheep’s original soundtrack album for the video game Rad Skater Apocalypse. Rad Skater Apocalypse is developed by Muzboz Games.

“I Miss My Amiga 500” Hit 1.000 Plays on SoundCloud

October 28, 2013 in Analog Sheep, Music, News

My tribute to Amiga era became my third song to hit 1.000 plays on SoundCloud.

I can call this song as the beginning of Analog Sheep project. I wanted to start my electronic music journey from my oldest inspiration which was my Amiga 500. I need to pay it back before doing anything else.

This song also helped me to create a special connection with Australian indie game developer Muzboz. At those days he was working on his first game Rad Skater Apocalypse Boom!, an arcade runner also inspired by his childhood memories of Amiga. I send him my Amiga tribute and after listening to it he asked me to make music for his game keeping Amiga in mind. I made three more tracks for Muzboz’s game. Later I published a soundtrack EP of the game and added I Miss My Amiga 500 as the bonus track. Here is the complete EP:

“Analog Sheep” Came into the World

January 24, 2013 in Album, Compositions, Game Soundtrack, Guney Ozsan, Music, News, Releases, Video Game Music

Analog SheepMy electronic project “Analog Sheep” finally came into the world. I was working hard on this project, and from now on, I will be collecting my music full of synthesizers of vintage colors and analog character under the name Analog Sheep.

Analog Sheep is named after the novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” by the American writer Philip K. Dick. The novel describes a post-apocalyptic world where it became very hard to distinguish androids from human beings. Analog Sheep is formed to ask the question: “Do Synthesizers Dream of Analog Sheep?
Do synthesizers dream of Analog Sheep?
The character design of Analog Sheep is created by Murat Kalkavan.

The soundtrack of independent video game producer Murray Lorden‘s iPad/iPhone game “Rad Skater Apocalypse” became Analog Sheep’s debut album. The 4 track soundtrack EP is full of analog modelled synths, solos and vintage feeling. Besides there is a bonus track called “I Miss My Amiga 500“, an ode to Amiga era for Amiga crazy fans.
