Hello, everyone. My name is Nathan, from OKC. I’m new to using NoiChan and this is basically my first post (also the same first post I wrote for ucollective, but it works). It is great to be a member of such an awesome website dedicated to the promotion of chip music. Here is a little bit of background on me.
I discovered the chip music scene from 8bc back in Fall of 2010, my junior year of college. I was a music composition major and ended up graduating in Spring 2013 with my bachelor’s degree in it. I lurked 8bc like a hawk and discovered some of my favorite artists that way, including Sabrepulse, IAYD, Disasterpeace, Fighter X, Electric Children, Trey Frey, and more. I first downloaded the full version of LSDJ 4.0 (I think it was?) and used my emulator, but got absolutely nowhere. Part of it was being lazy, a huge chunk of it was the intimidation I felt from a very heavy classical music school. That, and broadway musicals, I felt were all that they cared about. My senior year I finished my first piece on LSDJ, using a Gameboy and cart this time around, and it was written with the intent to say, “fuck this, I’m a composer and I’ll write whatever I damn well please.” So I did. People liked it. I’ve writing chip music ever since, as well as more commercial music (I’m working on a short film score for a friend of mine now). I plan to write commercial music, specifically video game music as my career of choice from here on out.
That’s my long winded story. It is nice to meet you all!
