Genesis Bending is a compilation album created by various members of the We Are The Music Makers music forum. The project was conceived by Peter Godfrey (one half of the ambient group 'cubus') who experimented with the accidentally discovered effect of merging the memory states of various Mega Drive/Genesis games into one another using an emulator. The various results compiled on this album show the variety of the effects that can be created by using this so-called 'Save State Bending' technique - from the ambient drone of mcbpete's 'Echo Jr into Sonic 2 Beta', dark glitch of Pselodux's 'Sonistar3', music concrete of Hautlle's 'MK2vYB' right through to melodic minimalism of Alex Tripp's 'ghouls_into_outrun_2019_(japan)_003'. Genesis Bending shows what would be the result of a console creating its own soundtrack based on cannibalised CPU instructions and non musical data.

Don't be fooled by the description, this cannot be deduced to a cold concept experimental album. So kick back and follow along with the incidental harmonies and spontaneous song structures.

Lol so much of me and mcbpete.

Yeah I was a bit conscious about that after I sent it - sorry for those that supplied tracks that didn't get on there, it was more about the convenience of having lossless versions of the tracks rather than the quality of them ...

everybody did a great job :beer: it's actually harder than the description makes it seem to get sounds this good out of the process. i was trying to make something but i gave up.


been listening to it all day, i'm really proud of being part of this

Guest Benedict Cumberbatch

great stuff.

on one hand i wish it was presented as an experimental glitch album with no explanation of how it was created.

on the other its a fascinating listen knowing how it was made.


i would have been interested in the reaction of people who didnt know how it was made

Just gotta bump this shit to say I listened to this again at some point in the early hours of sunday morning while making breakfast for me and my mates post clubbing. It went down better than expected! Great stuff.

although i know the tracks were made using an emulator, this stuff makes me wish i'd never sold my mega drive (euro-name of the genesis, quite lame i know....) - the sound chip is quite capable, i have to say!!
