When I was really young and getting into game music, I used to listen to my ZX Spectrum loading games and playing music in 8k. This 8k is not today’s 8k and that is making me feel exceptionally old and I’m not even 40. 8k back then was processed white noise sounds made to sound like melodic notes and it was the early advent of chiptune that moved beyond a simple sinewave – or beep. Why am I telling you this? It is because when I came across Container and his single ‘Mottle’ – its this type of noise and music that immediately popped into my head.
‘Mottle’ sounds like Container has recorded 8k noise samples and then made a song out it being processed through a printer. I know this sound will appeal only to a niche audience but as I champion chiptune music in general, this weird and wonderful piece of noise would appeal to the chip crowd. ‘Mottle’ comes from the new album ‘Scramblers’ which came out in March.
