For the next few months I will be talking a lot about my Project. I spent the first couple of weeks at University coming up with the Project Proposal and finding an appropriate supervisor. For the full project proposal, click here.

Basically I am interested in Chiptune music. This is where the sounds from old video games consoles are used to create modern music.

I am also looking into other types of Chiptune how other techniques for creating retro sounds.
