Biography

BatteryDead is a single musician electronic music project by Christian Ahlers founded in the year 2004 focused on chillout music with roots in the amiga demoscene, although I have published only one of my songs in a very little intro. When I got my first computer, a “Commodore Amiga 500” I soon searched for a music software, and with the legendary “soundtracker” I began composing music in 1987.
The sound system of the “A500” was stereo 8bit 28khz with 4 polyfonic voices and the cpu worked with only 7MHz clock. Because of these poor possibilities with the “A500” I upgraded to an “Amiga 3000” with 25mhz clock and from then I used the software “octamed soundstudio” for composing. This software was also usable as a simple midi-sequencer so I bought my first midi capable keyboard, a “casio “WK-1200”.
The “WK-1200” had only very little editable synthesizer parameters so I decided to buy a “real” synthesizer, the “Yamaha CS1x”. For a long time the “CS1x” has been the heart of my “studio” and some more synthesizers and effect processors were added. At present the “Yamaha Motif XS6” and a “Clavia Nordlead3” are my main instruments.
