Chiptunes = WIN is a long running compilation series that features chiptune artists from all over the globe. Volume 4 was released on July 20th, 2015 and features 51 of the best chiptune artists around. This is my fourth time participating in this compilation series, and once again I am proud to have my work displayed along with these accomplished artists. More after the jump!
My piece, entitled “Arrival” is track 31 on the album. When composing this piece, my focus was on creating a grand sense of space and mood. My original intention for this piece was more along the lines of an ambient soundscape, but during the writing process something felt lacking. I decided to combine the soundscape approach with a strong beat and a singable melody. The result is a fusion of chiptune, instrumental hip hop, and ambient electronic music.
