This April I released MK-SUPERDUPER, a new EP of microtonal electronic music. It’s now been made a free download until June 8th cos it’s my birthday week. So if you didn’t get it yet, give it a listen and a download! It’s quite similar to Rhythm and Xen.
If you bought the new EP already then thanks so much for the support. Now is a good chance to tell your friends so they can enjoy it too. I’m working on new music already, like this work in progress.
Happy listening folks.
Japanese musicians who are studying microtonality (or microtonalists who are studying the Japanese language) should check out a new blog called Microtonal Diary. An interview with me has just been posted there today. (Read the interview here…)
We talked about the influence that video game music had on me, my experience of writing to software developers about supporting microtonal scales, and microtonal music in general.
Microtonal Diary is written by Hidekazu Wakabayashi who discovered the Iceface tuning. I talked about this scale a little in 9 Alternative Tunings NOT for Guitar. You should definitely listen to some of the music on his YouTube channel too.
Sleep Deprived Cooked Alive is a drum & bass track from my album Rhythm and Xen. It’s written in 14-EDO (a microtonal tuning). It’s definitely one of the more popular tracks, so I’ve decided to release the remix stems for free.
The pack includes audio stems, MIDI parts and tuning files to help you tune your synthesizers to 14-EDO. Refer to your synth’s manual to see if it supports these files. This should be enough to get a good remix going, or just to study my work if you’re learning microtonal music.
If you make anything with these stems then let me know! I would love to check it out.

For this month’s #SaveShenmueHD tweetathon I decided to make a remix of the Shenmue I Slot House music using Mega Drive FM synth sounds. Mega Drive / Genesis geek for sure.
Well, I didn’t use an actual Mega Drive, but I did use FMDrive which sounds as perfect as I can tell. It’s easy to fall in love with that Yamaha YM2616 sound.
A few months back I remixed of the Fields of Time music from Chrono Cross, so if you are a Chrono fan you should check that out too:
Sevish has released his new EP titled MK-SUPERDUPER and you can get it now from bandcamp. MK-SUPERDUPER has 3 tracks of lush, liquid, atmospheric drum’n’bass using microtonal tunings.
The download includes a PDF liner notes booklet – check it out to discover how MK-SUPERDUPER got its name. Enjoy the new sounds!
Sevish’s new EP MK-SUPERDUPER will be released on April 1st. MK-SUPERDUPER is all about liquid dnb and experimental bass music with xenharmonic scales. I just made a short video on YouTube for the preview.
I had a lot of fun writing these tunes so check them out next Friday!
This is not just a “theory”. Sevish produced 3 liquid drum and bass tracks to honor the secret microtonal bass society – the MK-SUPERDUPER conspiracy will be exposed on April 1st.
You can download the first track now if you pre-order MK-SUPERDUPER on my bandcamp page.
I was recently interviewed by UnTwelve’s Aaron Krister Johnson and our conversation was published on their website today. We talked about the making microtonal music accessible to general audiences, the split-notes label, gear, composition and tuning.
The album features myself (Sevish), Banaphshu with Kraig Grady, Brendan Byrnes (ft. Louis Lopez), Carlos Devizia, Tony Dubshot, Jacky Ligon, Miekko, John Moriarty, Mosstone, Steve Mueske, Mythshifter, Robin Perry, Joseph Post, Carlo Serafini, Tall Kite, Elaine Walker, and Ozan Yarman (Ph.D.)
This free album is a snapshot of the online microtonal music community at the start of 2016 and shows a variety of approaches to groove-based microtonal/xenharmonic music. Check out the included liner notes to find out more about each artist and their approach to microtonality. If this is your first experience with microtonal music, then listen well and welcome to the madness!!
