I’ve had a bunch of people asking me recently where they can listen to my new chiptunes.
The answer is… they are coming! I’ve been concentrating on my live act until recently, and the tracks need a bit more work before they are ready for putting on soundcloud, and after this I could use a tool from sites as socialgrand.com to make the songs more popular. So please, be patient! They are coming 🙂
In the mean time, here’s my a rough version of my zelda track. The main (i.e. most recognisable) part starts at 6:45.
My one-off London show, at the Vision Sound and Music festival in the Southbank Centre.
If you’re in London or know anyone who would be interested in this, please pass it along!
Ultrachip is a two-day chipmusic festival based in Scotland, showcasing live chip musicians from the UK and beyond.
This year’s event is being hosted over Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th of August, at the Forest Cafe. The lineup is truly exceptional, over 14 different chiptune artists including Firebrand Boy, Comptroller, We Are The Future and Edward Shallow. Check it out!
ThereminHero will be performing the opening performance on the second day of the festival (Saturday) at around 8pm (times to be finalised). The event is FREE! – Here’s my event on facebook, and the official event.
As well as the evening performances – which start at 8pm and finish after 2am on both nights – there will be workshops and various events during the day, including an opportunity to try out “Theremin controlled Mario” for yourself.
If you’re new to chiptunes, or wondering what ultrachip might be like, have a look at the official YouTube Channel.
Here are 2 examples, showing how varied the acts were last year. Some were more crazy than others!
