INFOS:
This time I wanted to add some 'live' elements to tracked chiptune music. Trackers are cool but making some improvised solos is much better played "by hand", in real-time.
To compare the pure tracker chiptunes with their 'live' versions I split this album into two parts - tracker and 'live'.
Those have been made with NES / Famicom.
Also, I added some bonus-traxx - covers made with ZX Spectrum and toy-keyboards and synths. Enjoy. :-P

All the keyboards/synths parts have been played 100% live without any sequencing.

Videoclip from this album is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hd7CbfO0Eu8
It has been made by PixelNation for my NES/Famicom song "Roller-Coaster Ride".
Starring (haha) - me & my girlfriend Kate. :-P And numerous game-consoles. :)

Cover-art by Jokov.


Hardware used ->

Game-consoles and computers:
- Famicom AV
- ZX Spectrum 128

Toy-keyboards and synths:
- Korg Monotron Delay

Kind regards Paul
Theoretisch ist zwischen Theorie und Praxis kein Unterschied.
Praktisch allerdings wohl.
