Welcome to Symphony On A Chip! An all-new blog about retro video game music. I’m ChaosConstant, and I’ve been blogging about MMORPGs and other games for years over at OccasionalHero.com, but I’ve always enjoyed game music, especially that of the 80s and 90s. There’s something about the limitations of the hardware of that era that made some of the music very special. It’s not unlike how many people prefer Twitter over other social media platforms specifically because of the character limited posts.
I’m starting this blog as a part of Blaugust 2018, an initiative to encourage new or lapsed gaming bloggers to write more in the month of August. I’m not exactly what Blaugust was intended for–most bloggers are writing about experiences playing games, not about listening to their music–but I’ve been toying with the idea of this blog for a while now, and Blaugust was just the excuse to finally start it. You can read more about Blaugust here.
Everything here is very much a work in progress, and I’m figuring things out as I go. Should I say more about each track? Or did you get bored half way through my ramblings and just listen to the tracks? Please, I would love to hear any feedback, comments, and suggestions!
