ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Video Games were an essential part of my childhood. Not only did they provide me with a way to escape the problems of my youth and are what inspired me to begin writing music in the first place. This album is a reflection on my favorite childhood memories as a gamer and a tribute to the games that inspired me to pursue music as a career. The album takes inspiration from early NES game soundtracks in style and form but also extends track lengths to add development and uses various synth sounds to add texture and detail that wouldn't have been possible with the original system.

Logic Pro Studio 9 and Plogue Chipsounds were used in the making of this album.

Special Thanks to Katie Harrell, Nathan Stang and Jay Hurst for all the support, help and advice throughout the creation of this album

Nathan Stang

Phenomenal!
Capo takes the sounds and forms of retro video game music and elevates them to the level of art. If you grew up with the NES and have nostalgia for classic game titles like The Legend of Zelda or Megaman, then you owe it to yourself to give this album a listen! Each track is a great composition, and the album also has a great overall arc that merits beginning-to-end listening. You will not be disappointed with this fresh take on classic 8-bit sounds. I'm looking forward to hearing more from this budding artist!

An incredibly thoughtful and original perspective on video game and chip music.
While a lot of other chiptune artists try to make a name for themselves in this growing genre with flashy dance tunes and overly complex tracks that don't progress anywhere, Capo takes a more thoughtful and subtle approach. Clearly in love with this era of simplicity, he takes the basic gameplay structure of an NES game and turns into a track list for a game we really wish existed. From start to finish we are treated with expertly delivered tracks that explore a wide variety of moods, textures and forms. Some chiptune purists while notice the use of reverb throughout the albums 15 tracks. While some may not find this to there liking, I thought it was tastefully used and really added to the tone of the album. Fears that reverb would cheapen the authenticity of the sound are completely unfounded. I truly hope that people give this album a listen because this is one of the best chiptune albums to be released all year and I look forward to hearing more.
