Chiptunes tiba di Malaysia

hola everyone.. =D
saya hanya author jemputan utk blog ini. yup..as u have read the title, what is chiptunes actually? for those who never heard of chiptunes.. i got this from wiki..

A chiptune, or chip music, is noise music written in sound formats where all the sounds are synthesized in realtime by a computer or video game console sound chip, instead of using sample-based synthesis. The golden age of chiptunes was the mid 1980s to early 1990s, when such sound chips were the most common method for creating music on computers. Chiptunes are closely related to video game music, which often featured chiptunes out of necessity. The term has also been recently applied to more recent compositions that attempt to recreate the chiptune sound for purely aesthetic reasons, albeit with more complex technology.
still dont get it? Chiptune is music made from a chip, and thus mostly from video consoles and handhelds. The majority of artists use gameboys, NESes or Amigas to get the intended effect, but a lot of other instruments also play a part.

ya..chiptunes merupakan bunyi2an musik yg diperoleh dari cip yg terdapat pada video game dulu2 tu..the 8bit sound.

so CHIPTUNES ini sgt baru di Malaysia..Satu event yg sgt menarik telah diadakan pada1 november yg lepas di galaxy Ampang untuk memperkenalkan chiptunes di Malaysia. Event Colourama ini dihasilkan dari usaha sama 2 brand indie iaitu BANGKIT dan WEARENVY.

Antara chiptuner yg perform adalah dari Malaysia Mikrochip No32, My Empty Battery, Moronbeat, Mikrobotmen n Chippy Mariposa. dari Indonesia ada JW86, Local Drug Store, Dj Guttersnipe, Bit the Medusa,dan Robo Analogue. dan dari Singapore - Ikuma
