Last week, my little brother sent me a link to this video. Some of you have probably seen this already, since the video is about six months old (it was reported on by our own Josh Kopstein at time of release over at Motherboard).
What we have here is the creation of Swedish mastermind Linus Åkesson. Using both keyboards, the foot pedals for bass, and a variety of knobs and switches on the top board, Linus demonstrates how he can re-create virtually any 8-bit score live with his modded organ, which he calls “the chipophone.”
Linus has done some other real-instrument-and-chiptune fusion. We thought (and still think) this sort of stuff is awesome. Anyone else think they have the ingenuity to pull this off? And if so, can you bring your crazy inventions to next year’s MAGFest so the OSV staff can check it out? Thanks!Tags: Chipophone, Linus Åkesson
