MOON8

Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon gets the royal NES chiptunes treatment from Ontario game programmer, Brad Smith. He arranged it to be directly compatible with the North American version of the NES, and the result is a lot less Mario sounding than you might think.

Music to Your Ears

Bud Melvin's Popular Music

What do you get when you mix banjo, 8-bit Nintendo and karaoke? (Aside from a Missourian out on the town in Japan.) You get programmer/picker Bud Melvin’s LP release for Popular Music.

Bud Melvin creates a solo novelty using the banjo and chiptunes—music produced by older video game and computer systems that generate sound in real time. It’s both retro digital and pastoral, an unlikely combination that interacts with the dynamism of yin and yang. On Sunday, a live collision of Luigi and Jed awaits release party revelers at Ed's Pub, Leisure Bowl's wood-paneled, karaoke-fraught watering hole. The show is free and followed by a night of open karaoke. In the meantime, the Alibi shipped off a few electronic questions to Melvin about the record.

Why release digital chiptunes on an analog record?
