Interview with SHITBIRD.

Here is the First of a series of Interviews with Chip Musicians that I consider to be prolific and of the highest quality. I was on AIM, so my name is “juanito315”, shitbird is “SHITBIRD”.


juanito315 3:27 pm
(3:27:12 PM):     What got you into chip music?
SHITBIRD 3:27 pm
(3:27:33 PM):     easy, videogames XD
(3:28:26 PM):     Always loved the lofi-sounds from the older consoles
juanito315 3:28 pm
(3:28:33 PM):     Was there a specific point where you got interested in chiptunes particularlly?

SHITBIRD 3:30 pm

juanito315 3:31 pm
(3:31:03 PM):     hahahaha
SHITBIRD 3:37 pm
(3:37:55 PM):     I was influenced by a few artists before i finally attempted. Scotch Egg (obviously) Ralp, Unicorn Dream Attack. I used daws on cpu for a good while, and grew sick of the massive amount of effects involved. I like how “chiptune” leaves more room for imagination. Also emulating high tech effects through a lo-fi  source sounded like a fun challenge
(3:38:05 PM):     ha„hope your a good editor XDD
juanito315 3:38 pm
