Staring at My Spaceship

November 22, 2007 1:56 AM

I get to perform this as part of my set at Blip Festival in NYC next week - essentially the Woodstock of chiptunes / 8-bit / video game music.
This was written out of intense affection for my EVE Online playing nerd girl (a soft orchestral arrangement of it is going to be our wedding processional, awww) and was released on 8bitpeoples' 8BP050 compilation CD. I've spruced it up with some orchestration for the show. Come rock with me if you're local -- I'd love to meet my fellow mefimusicians and introduce more people to the chiptune scene. It's pure love and fun.

Wow, this rocks.
Or rocks by not rocking, but by being all Bossa Nova. Excellent.

Jake, if you have set out to disappoint, YOU HAVE FAILED!

I'm liking the chip bossa tones going on there. Shame I can't get to NYC for Blipfest. I've just started messing about with LSDJ, so it would prob be awe-inspiring. Good Luck with the gig :)

It's like my misspent youth spent, which was largely spent infront of the TV with my NES and Master System, re-mixed. And I love it!
