First there was stuff! Whether it was rock, funk, soul or whatever is irrelevant. We’ll just call it by the name of pop. Pop was placed inside records, transmitted by radio waves, it reached listeners and it was good.
Then there was reproduction by machines that were capable of producing sound. The sound – which was definately not as organic as the pop it was trying to imitate – was ideal for newly invented things called computers. So the sound was placed inside computer programs to accompany games, and dang it, was it good.
Now we’ve reached the point when we’ve started to imitate the imitation. There’s a musical genre called ”chiptune”, which essence is to emulate the early electronic music. Early meaning 1980s, when computers and video game systems became household items.
If you don’t want to be too mainstream and dare look way back to the history, I suggest the likes of Léon Theremin and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Now that’s some early electronic madness!
Enough with this blabbering. Some chiptune for ye: ACTIONFACE.
