The Atari ST version of "The Secret Of Monkey Island" had totally messed up music. My son shows how it might have sounded like if someone had put more effort into this conversion:

Today my son programmed ring modulation. It sounds great and I bet that the next track will be awesome.

The new song is online! It consists of ring modulation sounds only.

Today my son published a game ("Two dimensions") that he made with Scratch:

https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/412252063/

It is a platformer/puzzle game and so far he receives quite a few rave reviews of Scratch users. Ít is a very sophisticated game in comparison to all the other stuff made with Scratch. He invested two weeks into this project, including the music tracks for the two dimensions.

My son is fascinated by the Commodore 64 and its SID synthesizer sound chip. He developed an own tracker program for the C64 and he's able to achieve some sounds that others can't do with the standard trackers. This is his first short C64 song:

That's impressive for a young fella.

The people at the C-64 Scene Database think the same:

They cannot really believe that he's only 13 years old.

My 12-year-old son has an own YT account now. Here is his jazzy debut song, programmed by himself with his 5$ micro controller:

That’s amazing!
Sounds great!
