Exclusive Bitmap Books Album from chibi-tech now Available to All

Originally offered to Kickstarter backers of Bitmap Books’ NES/Famicom: a visual compendium, chibi-tech’s Psycho Somatic Generation album is now available to all via Bandcamp. Commissioned as a stretch goal for the 2016 Kickstarter, the album features ten chiptune songs reminiscent of familiar NES/Famicom “house styles”. As chibi-tech explains, “for a long time now, I’ve been wanting to make an original album that closely emulates the composition techniques of various NES game music from the past.”

Chibi-tech goes on to add, “many games had their own distinctive take (both technique & style-wise) on NES music that oftentimes defined ‘the sound’ of their respective companies — up to the point where people say things like ‘Oh, that’s a Konami tune!’ or ‘That’s totally Capcom right there!’. My aim is to make my own original soundtrack that takes each different take and closely emulate both the musical technique & style with reasonable accuracy – while still putting my own distinctive spin.”

Adding to the authentic emulation is veteran composer Allister Brimble who did the final mastering on the album. Check it out for yourself on Bandcamp and grab it for pay-what-you like. Also, take a look at that Bitmap Books compendium — it’s gorgeous — as is their upcoming SNES/Super Famicom tome due out in February 2018.
