This is a track called "The Game of Life", which I have released newer versions under the name "Down the 25" (its composition name!). This was performed live on my Yamaha Tyros which was programmed completely by me. This was then recorded to a Yamaha Cassette deck and has since been reprocessed in Wavelab to restore it and bring it up to scratch. It stars my as usually questionable vocals and am only releasing it as its an origin file and some people may find it interesting.

Game of life took a few weeks mainly programming my keyboard (as its no the easiest platform to make music on!), make lyrics and do about a million takes to get a version which ended up sounding like this! All vocal processing was done with custom patches on the Tyros and there has been a bit of further processing I added yesterday in cubase, mastering reverb and adding Ultramaximizer to get the levels up to a decent level before I released it.

I guess I could have originally used the vocoder on my tyros to reinforce the vocals, but you get what you get and if your ears fall off don't come running to me...
