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).
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]
Cover version of perhaps my absolute most favorite 80ies TV-series, Les Mondes Engloutis. (It was called Spartakus And The Sun Beneath The Sea in the US.) [more inside]
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.
