Here's something a bit different. I've always been a big fan of composing in as many mediums as I can get my hands on, and one medium that I've really been getting into over the last couple years is chiptunes. I've done quite a few that I really like but this one is probably my most well-liked so far on the website I participate in (battleofthebits.org). It's quite classical-leaning in many ways, as opposed to a lot of chiptunes which deliberately seek to sound videogame-y. I called it 'ceilidh' because it was inspired by two ceilidhs that I attended during my first week here in Glasgow. A ceilidh, to put it as simply as possible, is a traditional Scottish gathering with song and dance. To me, the term 'chiptune' is distinct from '8-bit' in that a chiptune is music that could actually be physically played on a specific music chip. To prove it, the .mp3 I have uploaded here is an actual recording that another user took of their own NES, playing the music file I had created. It also means there's not much use me uploading the source file, because it was created in FamiTracker which is not notation software.
I'd like to interest you with my latest creation: Play-Force 2A03 which is a music soundtrack that one can use for any spaceship shooter that is famicom related in it's design https://adplay.bandcamp.com/album/play-force-2a03 It contains many tunes that are typical to that specific genre and I find it an advancement compared to former artwork of mine of the late years. Take a listen, have an impress and any feedback would be useful to me regarding my creation, a potential purchase as well but mostly I would like you to see and experience it as it played on the web-store's page. Thank you in advance and I hope it inspires you as well to create and experience with electronic music and Famicom related material
