Chiptune musician Simon Mattison describes his latest ep, Leaves, in an only partially decipherable poem:
the result of a unique tradition
returns to be is a 56k modem.
a free impro(bable) session
is author’s interest in high style groovy arcade
all-in-all, loads of a label.
but very-very deep and quality.
has a young electronic music spectrum
in high style and smooth sound carpets
But what you need to know: it’s nicely dub-influenced bleeps, done up on LittleGPTracker, a version of littlesounddj for obscure Korean handheld GP2X.
For other stylistically left-field chip music, try Bud Melvin, particularly the 657,644 album found on his site, who regularly overlays his Game Boy music with live banjo which, for all its anachronism, actually works. See especially Sun Salutation and Gajanana, two tracks written for a never-created Game Boy Color game based on the adventures of Hindu elephant god Ganesha (!).
