Fish Notes

 

How about another quick piece of video game music?

 
I usually write NES music with a tracker, which is more like programming an audio chip with a series of sound instructions than it is composing in a traditional sense.  This time, however, I wanted to try out Matt Montag’s NES VST, which is a plugin that allows one to recreate 8-bit Nintendo tunes with a standard notation sequencer.  The streamlined workflow meant I could throw something like this this together in about an hour.

As such, enjoy (or hate (or be utterly indifferent to)) a jaunty little level loop.

I realize I’m probably pretty late to the party here, but I recently got ahold of a sound programmer for the Ricoh 2A03 (the NES CPU, for the non-super-nerdy).

So how could I not throw together a dirty, crunchy 8-bit video game style tune with it?

HOW?
