A new Kickstarter project has been launched which intends to celebrate the authentic sound of NES music. Unchipped - 8-Bit Music Reborn is the work of Brad Tratzinski, and has a modest goal of just $4,000.
Tratzinski - who also plays in the band Splitbelly - reveals that the project came about due to his dissatisfaction with current retro remixes:
I want to release an album that comes from my imagination. I have been disappointed in pretty much all classic game based albums due to how overly remixed they are.
Most existing classic game albums range from dance to techno to emo, metal and so on.....
I want to deliver a package that represents what the classic games of my youth sounded like in my head as I played them. Remember playing those games with the thin digital sounds that made you so excited? Remember what your imagination made them sound like? I give you Unchipped.
What do you think of Tratzinski's work? Will you be pledging financial support? Let us know in the comments section.
