I had the pleasure of seeng the 8-bit alliance tour at Carnegie Mellon University for FREE lastnight. Since my involvement into the retro gaming scene it’s probablyno surprise that I have also got really into 8-bit music (or Chip music). Lastnight was my first time seeing some of my favorite 8-bit artists live.
Ever since hearing the music from the first two levels of Mario Brothers I’ve always enjoyed some 8bit tunes. I remember a few years back listening to midi files I’d download from some online music scene (this was before myspace blew up). It’s good to see that this type of music is really growing and getting some solid artists. If you’re interested in listening to some I’d start right here: http://www.last.fm/tag/8-bit
