cool stuff that happened in 2014:
- played dumb chip music at square sounds festival & AVCON and people actually enjoyed it!
- speaking of AVCON, i did a panel there with a bunch of guys all about what chip music is
- sort of helped out with a how-to-LSDJ workshop with Sabrepulse, but probably didn't help that much lol
- kinda "headlined" the ChipWIN vol. 3 compilation? ok not a big deal but it was still cool
- done got another thing released on SectionZ Records, maybe one day i'll actually get an EP together :v
- got into honours for my psyc undergrad (this was actually hard to do lmao)

i feel like this is an appropriate place to put this (was a bit racey for the NG audio group on facebook :v)

(edit: link for context)


HEY. I got invited to play at a chip music festival in Melbourne called Square Sounds, but for real this time! Main stage n all that! Alongside the likes of Sabrepulse, NNNNNNNNNN, SEXY SYNTHESIZER, and local legends little-scale and Brainbeau

The show is run by the Sound Bytes crew, who do quarterly shows you may have seen featured on destructoid/kotaku at some point. ANYWAY they are running a crowdfunding initiative on pozible, so if you can't make it to the show (March 28-29 in Melbourne) you can still pledge some buckeroos to support the international chip community and get some sweet gear and musics in the process.

http://www.pozible.com/project/32002 <- just do it ok pls i love you yes

For real though, get amongst it! Don't forget to like my shit on facebook for extra updates and shenanigans!

Square Sounds Melbourne - Chip Music Festival!

A Question for Chiptune Fans!

2013-08-07 04:17:04 by midimachine

HEY. what do you think of CHIPTUNES and VOCALS put together?

i ask cause j. arthur keenes is releasing his first full length album on the 10th and shirobon recently came back to the scene with a really slick track with sweet vocoder-ey bits. these dudes are kinda polar opposites in terms of their implementation of both vocals and chip sounds, but both seem really well received.

NOW some of you might've heard my chip stuff under the alias Victory Road, and if you have that's fucking cool of you. IF NOT then idk just check out the newest song of mine on NG right on my profile or on the front page cause that's where it is at the moment. btw it's getting taken down eventually cause it'll be on the next victory road release. OH but SPEAKING OF WHICH, the next v-road release will be fuckin JAM PACKED with vocals, BUT i'm thinking of including instrumentals for you knobs that don't like vocals.

anyway tl;dr: chiptune with vocals, y/n?

oh, and like my shit on facebook for more frequent Victory Road updates loooool

Perpetual Motion EP Out Now

2013-04-01 10:38:40 by midimachine

http://v-road.bandcamp.com/album/perpetual-motio n

It's basically a short concept album about Minecraft (sort of!).
The production is based around simple, warm virtual-analog sounds which morph and fluctuate a lot, combined with more contemporary arrangements of electronic percussion.

Pay what you want n all that. Get amongst it!
