Eitan Teomi is an award-winning professional audio/sound designer. He made some very nice HardSID related tunes (just listen Stay Awhile Forever or This Sky And Love Says) and he is the first artist who got his hands on a HardSID 4U. Eitan is also the creator of the first example patch bank for the HardSID 4U VSTi.
His first experiment with the HardSID 4U is a tech demo mix where the HS4U is a supporting instrument that plays together with many other instruments.

Eitan's own comments: "This project was a clear decision to demonstrate how HS4U can co-exist in a contemporary dynamic arrangement that can easily fit in cutting edge media projects. I was trying to break away from simply retro mockups of nostalgic trends and bring that edgy funky and ultra rich sounding SID into the sophisticated contemporary piece. Obviously the sound in itself is nostalgic and the inspiration that it brings also corresponds to it, but it is amazing to see how it stands out in a mix making it sound fresh and thought provoking.
