31 Days of Free Music: The World Of 8-Bit Music

Mar 6th, 2007 | By | Category: Digital Music

Commodre 64March 06: It’s 31 Days of Free Music month at Podcasting News. Every day in March, we’re highlighting a free music podcast.

Previously, we’ve highlighted a free electronic music podcast, a classical music podcast, an Americana music podcast and more.

Today’s podcast is Blibb Blobb – The Chiptune Podcast. It’s a great example of how podcasts can open up a world of music that you’ll never hear on mainstream radio.

If you’re not familiar with it, chiptune or 8-bit music is music written for obsolete gaming systems, like the Commodore 64 or Amiga computers. If you’ve played old video games or Gameboys, you’ve heard classic chiptunes.

The music is cheesetastic – the limited sound capabilities of old gaming systems pose a challenge for musicians, but the best chiptune music turns the “blibb blobb” of cheap synth effects into real music.

The latest episode, below, looks at chiptunes programmed on Amiga with Protracker (mod). All songs recorded from Amiga Computers.
