Chiptune aesthetic not just for nostalgia?
« on: January 31, 2016, 09:15:05 »

I was thinking that I don't really value the chiptune aesthetic for nostalgic reasons. Maybe a little in some cases, but I find that the waveforms express pure geometric beauty in sound which is valuable for all times and ages to come. So really a chiptune is using waveforms in their purest, most archetypal form to make music. And that's some powerful stuff that will probably be around in future generations too. Thoughts?

I make chiptunes for nostalgia (listening to .mod's and using the format for using in Gameboy games). I hope you are right about future generations.  :)

Even in these days, people do chiptune music; there is a lot of Famicompo. Look it up and you can see that there is a lot!
