Forty-two tracks in no particular order began on Marlon’s forty second birthday. This is the 9th online offering and will include everything so far. The recordings used for this project were recorded over a span of 2 decades and come from various sources which means The sound quality may vary from poor to good but you will find some Marlon rarities and unreleased R.h.oZ collaborations here.

9. Dead Air (Mp3 / Ogg) is an R.h.oZ and Marlon collab of ‘Life Goes On Like The Moser Sometimes’ by Marlon. This short demo was recorded a while back in the key of G minor at a tempo of 77 beats per minute.
10. Here I Am Scum (Mp3 / Ogg) was taken from a 1994 demo tape Marlon made using a few toy keyboards and a Boombox. The music here makes me feel like I’m playing a classic video game and I’m getting ready to take out some baddies. This piece was extracted from the original cassette tape back in 2009. Fun fact, Here I Am Scum was written in the key of G minor at a tempo of 120 beats per minute.
11. I Just Found My Way (Mp3 / Ogg) was taken from a 1995 demo tape Marlon made using an Amiga computer with a few toy keyboards, a Boombox and a microphone that was made from an old pair of Headphones. This piece was rescued from the original cassette tape back in 2009. The sound quality is rather poor but I’m happy it still exists today.
12. Bass-Fu (Mp3 / Ogg) was written and recorded back in 1997 and was taken from a 1998 CD-rom R.h.oZ made of Marlon’s music. Bass-fu was made on a computer with an Awe32 sound blaster that had Two megabytes of Ram on it for soundfonts, a VCR, a Midi Keyboard controller and some audio software. The following software used include ‘Goldwave’ from GoldWave Inc, ‘Session’ from midisoft and ‘Vienna’ from Creative Labs.
16. It’s Grumbling (Mp3 / Ogg) is a short soundscape that was made using Marlon’s sample packs, this recording was taken from the ‘Now For Some Marlon’ release and was made in May 2016 with R.h.oZ and the Spunjet Crew.
17. Pump That Muscle (Mp3 / Ogg) was recorded in 2011 for the Spunjet release ‘The collective Source’. This track has a classical feel with an outsider spirit in your mind. I really enjoy this unusual piece and for for some reason it makes me feel that time is just ticking away.
Thank you for listening to Marlon’s ‘Forty-two part 1’ AKA ‘Forty-two 2020’ and we look forward to your return. ‘Part 2’ aka ‘2021’ will be available very soon.
