[daily dosis] Kjell Nordbø Tribute #1

Ten years have passed since Kjell Nordbø aka Bluez Muz' passed away under tragic circumstances.

I only learned about his music many years after his death. Nontheless, I consider him to be one of the best, most original C64 music composers of all time. If you want to find out more about Kjell Nordbø, please go and read the obituary on chipflip.

On this occasion, Ancient Wonderworld will comemmorate his legacy with a special, week-long edition of Daily Dosis, featuring Kjell's music recorded from an R5 8580 SID.

All the recordings were provided by the 6581-8580 project.

Let's start with "Sunrise", a track from Kjell's final musicdisk, "Larger Than Life".


  1. You did well to make a tribute to this genious! He (or at least his memory) really deserves to be better known.

    This Sunrise tune is probably my all time favorite! (but I think it was released before the Larger than life demo). There is something strange which is happening in my soul each time I'm listening to it (the same goes for many of his composition, including Lifeblood)

  2. Thank you so much for this tribute! I knew Kjell personally and I was a big fan of his music, too. I'm planning on making a large tribute to him and his music in the near future.

    1. Glad you liked it! Please let me know when you have your tribute ready, so I can link to it from here.
