Eat ya chiptunes, kids

  • 8-Bit Collective member Derris-Kharlan did a chiptunes medley of songs from the Nintendo 64 Zelda games, Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. Both of those (cartridge!) releases had fantastic music, but it was composed with high-quality orchestral samples — not chiptunes. DK’s version is absolutely fantastic! Listen and download it from the song’s 8-Bit Collective page.
  • Another 8-Bit Collective artist with some real pizazz is the brilliantly named Ghostface Kilobyte. GK’s website is a hilarious art project: some of his covers are fantastic; I dig pretty hard on the “We Are the Champions” cover.
  • Also fantastic is the blog, Cruise Elroy, which dissects the music theory behind Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Sonic the Hedgehog 2, among others.
