Welcome to The Other Blog!


Two guys from Paris.
Fond of vintage synths and computers,
video games music and 8-bit culture.
We make chiptune on the hardware we love:
Nintendo Game Boy, Sega Megadrive/Genesis, Commodore 64.
We compose and record them from the real stuff, plain and pure,
just for your ears.

The Other Days Live @ Geek Faëries 2014

Hello !

Want to see us playing live?
But at the same time, you'd love mucking around in your coach?

No problem! We will play live on 18th of January during the Geek Faëries On The Web 2.0 .


Geek Faëries is a french online event focused on various geeky stuff:  tournaments, interviews, cosplay, talks about video games, and so on...

It lasts for 3 days and the whole events will be streamed on several and simultaneous video channels, online.

Our concert will be broadcast on channel #1 at 9pm GMT+1 (Paris).
If you live near Paris, go and see us on the screens of the Kawaii Café!

See you online,
The Other Days.

Our first live concert abroad!

...And it was on saturday 10th of january 2014!

Our friend Ultrasyd was very kind to find a slot for us at Eindbaas pre-party in Utrech (NL) !

It was an open stage, so each guest had to play for 15mn max. So we did a short set but the hell, it was great!
We saw cool people too: RoccoW, Bart, Kenobit, 8GB, Ultrasyd ...   Eindbaas is definitely the place for chiptuners and micromusicians worldwide!

By the way, we recorded the set, just listen to it below :)

Enjoy,
The Other Days

At last! The chase is over!

Finally, it's here!

Introducing The Chase: our first multichip-tune! See gear list below.

 This is a cover from the music of the same name by Giorgio Moroder, 1978.
This song is featured in Coucou Netlabel's 70's Chiptune Compilation, see right here: www.coucounetlabel.com/release/70%E2…ion-coucou027

Coucou indeed needed some time to release this compilation properly (22 tracks!)... but hey, it was worth the wait, isn't it?

Enjoy and check our other releases at theotherdays.net!

PS:  the gear list for the tech addicts:
---------

  

  * Bassline:
  - Megadrive FMDrive VST plugin (our teensy GenMDM fried in the process and we didn't have time to wait for a replacement! :( )

  * Leads, synths, chords:
  - Commodore C64 breadbin w/ sid 6581
  * Drums:
