It took me a while to come around to chiptune music. While I appreciated the process and ingenuity behind it, it was hard voluntarily want to listen to music that sounding like my Nintendo was epileptic. But that was sooo twelve months ago. This stuff is everywhere – there’s even a full-length documentary floating around on the internet somewhere about the craze (can’t for the life of me remember it, but I’m sure Google can help you if you’re keen).
Anyway, one of Brisbane’s more prominent exponents of gameboy-tweaking muzak is Dot.AY aka Alex Yabsley, who finished his full-length a couple of months back. If you’re a fan of the above (and yes, I believe that’s a ‘Guitar Hero’ controller he’s wielding there), then head here to download it for free. He’s playing at both Valley Fiesta and 2High Festival for any Brisbanites keen on indulging in some of his stuff at free local festivals.
