We Are The Songs

Studio Notes

When the database of the chiptune community known as ”8bit collective” or “#8bc” died and corrupted a huge number of songs, ”We are the songs” is a tribute to lost music from this terrible occasion. The dissonant intro depicting melting fragmented chiptune.

We are the songs” is a quirky blast through as many genres as I could fit in time for the Revision demoparty competition in Saarbrucken, Germany. It was quite tongue in cheek yet managed to score well above expectations ranking just below the top half in the results.

The track best described by a fellow (winning) scener glxblt as ”schizophrenic”, it was fair and I couldn’t disagree!
