Greetings
and welcome to my profile.

I compose modules in MOD and IT formats.



Here is a history of my interest in modules.

I heard first module in my life in 2004. At that time I did not know that this type of music is called "tracker" or so, I just liked listening to it. Since then, I became interested in this kind of music.

From 2004 to 2013, I listened to modules occasionally, yet with no idea of how they are properly called.

In 2013, I discovered a website that had (and still has) a thematic collection of tracker modules. It gave me answers to most of my questions about my favourite (from that moment) kind of music and it instantly became my main source of tracker music for the next couple of years. I also started listening to modules on a regular basis that year.

Two years later, in 2015, I finally got to TMA and, without hesitation, started collecting modules for my own collection, which has 55,000+ modules as of 28th December 2022.

Composing own modules since 22nd August 2016.

Member of TMA since 27th November 2016.

In 2019, I decided to conduct an experiment, the purpose of which was to find out the answer to just one question: is it possible to make 100 modules within 30 days, if each of them should be no shorter than 1 minute and have distinctive features from the rest? In 29 days I answered my own question: yes, it is possible. The result of this experiment is the Dog series, my ultimate dedication to the oldest sample disk for music trackers – 100 modules composed in MOD format, duration is within 01:01 - 01:59 for each one, and all of them, for simplicity of the experiment, were based on the (in)famous ST-01 sample disk samples. The series was done in 29 days – from 4th August 2019 to 1st September 2019, and I consider it as my personal achievement – this is the only reason why I am writing about it here and why I decided to publish it on TMA. Today, all 100 modules from this series are available for your examination. Please note: this series was influenced by my experience of listening to a lot of early (1988 - 1989) Amiga modules, so it should be considered only as an addition to my main modules because of its experimental nature.



I am not giving a list of my recommendations on my own modules, because I want to provide you a possibility of independent exploration of my modules. However, I would like to suggest you a list of modules that have been favourited by other members of TMA (thanks to all of them). Modules in this list are sorted by the year of composition, from newest to oldest, latter brackets indicate the year when the module was composed:

mpxvm: No problem. I also have a feeling that I would implement the same idea differently today when I re-listen my old modules, but I take it for granted because experience comes with time. Lack of any special knowledge is not an obstacle to the creation of good works, there are examples of this. I enjoy listening to your modules, both old and new. Thank you for continuing this long-lasting series of well made modules.

Re: Thanks for the generous notes, you are very kind as always. Many times when I re-listen my old stuff I think: ah, I've could do that in better ways. It's always a challenge to transpose into a finit song shape the idea from that stuck in head, without knowing the best techniques or without musical knowledge wich I don't have. But is an reward to acknowledge that maybe is a blue print for the next songs which can be inspired by the sound or re usage of the instruments :)

mpxvm: You are always welcome.
In the case of FUMIX 041, it was love at first sight. I listened to it when it was released in July 2019, and I already planned my rating on it. But because I started being more active on TMA only a month later, in August 2019, by posting comments on modules that I have downloaded to my collection since October 2015 (to organize my comments and favourites plan, I even have to make spreadsheets, where I divide modules into parts – I downloaded 7972 modules in 2019, so I divided them into 57 parts, each contains from 101 to 200 modules), I got to this module just yesterday, so sorry for any possible inconvenience. I follow the principle "Better late than never".
A 10 out of 10 is absolutely deserved in this case, well done.

Re: You are very kind giving to my song 10 from 10, it wasn't planned to be that dark that FUMIX 041, it was probably a mix of hazard, the universe wanted to be in that way because I have no plans when I start a new song, everything starts from scratch touching some notes and shaping the first melodic idea. In comparison with my last 3 new modules yes, that 041 is a weirdo :)) The funny thing is that, having more then 400 created modules, I can't remember all of them so, some of the times I rediscover my work re-listening some of these old tracks when I get feedback from You and other modarchive users. :)

Saga Musix: Sure, no problem.

Re: In the future, I would appreciate if you could post on the forums if you think a module is broken and needs to be replaced. That would make it much easier to track (hah) the information. Cheers!

Re: Hello, Saga Musix! I actually thought that the replaced file was damaged, but I haven't thought that there is a correct version of this module on TMA, because I found the broken file just by using the "Random Pick!" function repeatedly one day in 2017. Recently I found the broken module again in my collection of modules and decided to leave a comment on it only to draw attention to the fact that it was a bad file to download. Thanks for your information, anyway.

Re: Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that I had to remove your comment from 23 - in fact it was not a comment on this exact file, but on a duplicate, broken file. The broken duplicate has since been replaced by the correct file. It's still a difficult file to play correctly (the next OpenMPT update will get it right), for now it should best be played with Deliplayer. But rest assured, the file is not broken and not as terrible as this broken conversion suggested. :)
