8bit 1sl4nd

I work at BigCorp, which is having an internal contest to build songs for its hold music. This has finally given me the impetus to figure out how to actually make songs (rather than random sketches) with my newish OP-1. This one was built with an OP-1, along with a couple Pocket Operators (Arcade and Rhythm).

This is Wrong

Sample reduced synthetics, atonal feedback, and other fancy marginally (ir)relevant musical gibberish. It's loud, and isn't that really all you wanted? [more inside]

Bridge to Nowhere

You can feel the beat rising, incrementally, step by step. Melody, chorus, melody, chorus... The air clears. It's that part in the song that builds and builds to it's highest point and then [more inside]

Man with a Beard

Ever hear a sound that falls and rises at the same time? This is NOT a song that captures the feel of No Shave November. [more inside]

F'n Amazing

More electronic beats! I was going to wait until I had finished a whole song before I posted this, but who am I kidding? This is probably it. I think I'm getting better at making virtual instruments though. If not better, louder at least.

Escritiore Conundrum

An old thing that's been sitting too long, I envision this as the music playing in your head when you've gone to bed, can't sleep, and have gotten back up and gone back to your workspace to crunch on that ONE odd thing that's been bugging you about your latest project. [more inside]

FX4 - Weapon

I haven't posted any chip music here in a while, and I've run my fool mouth in several recent chiptune-related posts. So I figured it was time to demonstrate that I still have NO clue what I'm talking about! Here, this is what I am doing with the Nintendo Entertainment System lately. It's a song from a concept album about a gay time-travelling vampire. [more inside]

Fantastische Farben

This is a tune I wrote in 05. All the instrument sounds come from an emulated SID chip (Commodore 64) and the drums are a sliced up sample. This song was featured on the "I am 8bit" portion of the King of Kong DVD and now I upload it here to share with my fellow MeFites! I hope you like it.

Dracula Man X2 Alpha Turbo

Awesome stuff, guys. I'll represent retro/chip music: I'm involved in the niche hobby of writing new music with old videogame hardware. The music you are hearing was programmed in notepad using a TurboGrafx 16 (PC Engine). It's meant to combine Capcom and Konami videogame soundtracks of the late 80s, hence the weird title. I perform this music live in NYC, with guitars and lasers. I got awesome advice on Ask MeFi about how to get my equipment to shows, and as thanks I'll share my stuff with whoever might enjoy it. More of it is at my site, and my friends who also do this share it also.
