|AmigaOS 4.1 Final Update 1 Enhanced Version|
As most of you already know, I own an AmigaOne 500 aka SAM460ex, which I bought from GGSData in Sweden back in 2012. Exactly 5 years ago on 12th of September! Pretty amazing, isn't it?
I therefore thought it would be nice to celebrate a 5 Years Anniversary for my AmigaOne 500 computer, running latest AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update 1, with latest Workbench Enhancer from A-EON. But sometime in 2018, hopefully with AmigaOS 4.2, I plan to buy a complete A1222 Tabor.
Atmosphere - Progress on my Amiga Music Album
|Cover for my Atmosphere collection|
The album bears the name "Atmosphere", and will contain 20 new songs when completed. 7 songs are already available as "singles" on SoundCloud. I will provide a direct link as we progress further this blog. We will get to that soon enough.
Some of the songs were changed in later time to better fit the "Atmosphere" album.
Many songs are Ambient, especially using guitars and other more lifelike instruments, while other songs are more rhythmical and exotic. What is cool is that there will be many different styles, making it a truly awesome album, full of fantastic modern Amiga music! Amiga being 32 years old this year and STILL going strong! This awesome work proves that the Amiga is STILL capable of making great creations, like wonderful music! I'm very proud of this!

A lot of hard work has been spent on planning and composing this excellent FIRST song of the "Atmosphere" collection. "Different Man" is that song, worth listening to! A great opening!
One of the best songs on the "Atmosphere" collection, is simply the title track "Atmosphere". This is a 6-channel Ambient masterpiece with wonderful guitar riffs! This song shows why the album deserves the title "Atmosphere". And it just gets better as more work is coming!
|Cover to the song - "Midnight Sun"|
The song "Midnight Sun" is the 7th addition to the "Atmosphere" collection, composed & written by me - Helge Kvalheim of Bergen City Of Norway, composed on my AmigaOne 500 aka SAM460ex.
"Midnight Sun" is a 7-channel, very beautiful Ambient Ballad. Some elements are even inspired by asian music, hence the motive for the song is not to be asian at all, but simply a melodic, ambient ballad that want your hair on your body to rise! Yes, THAT impressive!
The song is a great inspiration of the beautiful midnight sun, often seen in
places like Lofoten, further north of Norway, close to North-Norway.
As I personally never have seen a TRUE midnight sun in my life, i wanted
to create a song that was deeply inspired by it, so the result simply became
the song - "Midnight Sun". Hear the beautiful harmony of guitars and pianos!
Hope you'll love this song! As always, hard work has been spent into this song!
You'll find my "Atmosphere" collection on SoundCloud under my nick HKvalhe.

Plans for my 8th Amiga song for the "Atmosphere" collection are under work. The title for the 8th song is to be "Donuts Cops". When completed, it will be added as the 8th song with information about the song. Just like the other songs on the album. Stay tuned ;)
Well, this completes the blog for this time around. Hope you will enjoy it :)
