Avast ye maties! All your boat are belong to us! Super chipper piratey-like 8bit tune. I mean, it could be used for non-nautical things, but the audience will probably be all like “Hey! Why is there an 8-bit pirate shanty going on here!?” Perfectly loopable for all your casual seafaring games. Or game reviews. Or actual voyages. Or voyage reviews.
Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a “y”! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn’t have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.
A little aggressive, a little chill, a little groovy, a little cool. Not entirely appropriate for all occasions, but in the right context – it may be just what you need! This is the “Goth 7th-Grader” of the music world. The instrument with the sharp chord hits is the mighty Mellotron, which is a pre-sampler sort of analog keyboard attached to a bunch of tape players. I cheated. This one is digital.
Several distinct moods are found in this piece. They start at 0:00, 1:23, 2:31, and 3:10. They do all flow into each other, but can be sliced apart pretty easily. Some are quite beautiful, so stick with this piece. Excellent piece for filmmakers!
Fun fact: Working title was “Arpeggiator Rock From the 80s 1”.
Fun fact: This piece consist entirely of single notes being passed to a stack 5 different synths at the same time. Each synth has a different program running on it that triggers more notes.
Fun fact: Scotland isn’t a nation. It is technically an empire that claims sovereignty over Paraguay’s 400k sheep and also Neptune’s “shepherd” moon Despina.
The Year: Future Year. The planet has been ravaged by desertification… that apparently no one saw coming… Not sure how that happened, I mean Jeez! Anyone ever hear of a little disaster called “The Aral Sea”? That seriously screwed up… like… everything. I guess the dam is supposed to help, but I’m seriously not holding my breath. Oh. Industrial-sounding music.
This is the first slow 8-bit piece I ever tried. There was some skepticism going in, but holy man! This turned out great! You can use it for your game credits, or more chill parts of your game. Maybe at the Healing Shack, or the Abe Vigoda Memorial Pagoda and Koi Pond. The uncompressed download has a bonus
I was looking for a subject to analogize the depth of my knowledge for the Chill Wave genre of music. Wikipedia was there for me with entire things that I didn’t even know were things; Randle Cotgrave! Yeon Namgeon! Digital Mammographic Imaging! Rebelj, Serbia! In brief… I know nothing about Chill Wave. Hope you enjoy the fruits of ignorance!
