I’ve previously announced it on Facebook and Twitter, now it’s time to share it here!
Legendary chiptune community/netlabel Chiptunes = WIN has just released the seventh volume of their compilation — and I’m one of the lucky 51 people to have made it onto the record. This is a tremendous honor and with my first publicly released chiptune no less!
“Tides” is heavily inspired by ’70s heavy metal and modern occult rock, but composed entirely on a Nintendo Entertainment System — you know, the old gray lunchbox — or rather an emulation of its soundchip. I’m pretty confident it would play like that on the actual console, though.
Veteran chiptune composer Heosphoros put it best:
“I feel like [Tim] Follin just got back from a Judas Priest concert”
That being said: Do definitely get the whole compilation, this is as good as chiptune gets. There’s such incredibly talent on this record, I’m not sure where I fit in, but I trust the judges’ judgment. 😀
