Absolutely beautiful! For some reason, this tune puts me right into a Professor Layton game in my head. Maybe it's the glockenspiel sounds :)

Wow, this is impressive. Fantastic soundscape, slightly discomforting even... Sounds I've never heard come out of the humble SID before. LoFi samples sound intentional too, very fitting to the atmosphere. Playful composition. 10+/10!

i'm not fully convinced by the sampled sounds, but the composition is so outstandingly beautiful, and the whole thing so original, i can't vote this below 10 ;)

Some very impressive technical stuff going on here, but TBH not to my taste musically, just a little too erratic for me. Still brilliant to coax these digital sounds out of the humble SID chip.

@DJS: Yeah. I think, it could work as a soundtrack for a short movie scene. I love Tiersen's music.

Really impressive for sure, I think it has a Yann Tiersen quality to it. Great composition which in my opinion could have been a a tad longer. Good sounds, good atmosphere, original. My compliments!

Wonderful weird stuff. Somehow reminds me of Gangpol & Mit. What were your influences? :)

@Shogoon: yep, you got me trying to "count" / "clap", because it has a very waltz feel to it. I gave up after a short time and decided to just enjoy it instead ;-)

Thank You guys for all your comments:). I'm so happy that you like it. A word of comment - this piece is a little puzzle. Certain motives are repeated for a reason, cause they are revealing true nature of a piece - 5/8 meter. My idea was to make listener to wonder - what the hell is going on here?:) Where's the 'one'. Hope I confused You a little bit:) That was my goal - and to make some music for our beloved c64:)

Super original, awesome vocals, unique sound, but one main gripe, the initial repeating melody gets on my nerves very quickly.
The song gets progressively better after the first 45 secs or so.
