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]

Staring at My Spaceship

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.

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.
