Liam Hagan Takes me back to the time when home computers and the internet were so new and unexplored. The whole thing reminds me of an 80s film score. The opening track sets the tone beautifully. Great, great album :) Favorite track: CPU.

The album 'Out of Memory' by Zalza depicts an exciting time between the late 70's until the early 90's when the personal computer rapidly turned into a multi-billion dollar industry.

Youngsters assembled computers from parts in their garage and met at computer clubs showing off what cool things they could do with software and hardware. It was a time when anything seemed possible.

Today the personal computer is an essential part of our everyday lives.

Each track on the full-length 14 track album is composed to bring out the sound of computers - The chipset, terminals, modem dial-ups, disk drives and sounds from gaming consoles is intent on bringing you there.

Here Zalza brings out his true feelings in subtle and soaring melodies, heavy beats and ingredients of computer noise.

Inspiration comes from vintage computer documentaries, 80's synthesizer and TV themes, 80's sci-fi blockbusters and current TV-series like Halt And Catch Fire, Mr. Robot and Stranger Things.

"I wanted to make an album with a sound inspired by computers and to capture the feeling of excitement in my childhood when I first got into computers. Genre-wise for this album I've taken a step from pure 'chiptune' to a SynthWave style enabling a broader sound image - But I've maintained the core I've had in my previous chiptune albums. The whole project has been a blast." - Zalza

In a sense Out of Memory is a lot like an old disk drive, filled with memories from Zalza's childhood that almost had been forgotten. Now he is ready to bring those nostalgic memories back to life, so buckle up and enjoy the journey!
