Chris Considers: ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’ by Yoann Turpin

Posted by

The sublime sounds of french keyboardist Yoann Turpin are among the best in all of chipmusic. I first became aware of his work with the release of ‘Rhythm’n’Bits’ via the Ubiktune netlabel, as I’m sure many of you have as well. Its infectious blend of funk and chip quickly landed it as being one of my all-time favorite chiptune albums.  Since that now classic release, Yoann has kindly contributed to the ChipWINter Wonderland album, and has been releasing loads of masterful music on his own at an astonishing rate. Among them has been an ongoing collection of songs called the ‘Chip Songbook’, which is a true gift for any chiptune fan. Let’s take a listen to ‘Chip Songbook Vol. 6’!

A recipe; the ingredients; the cookware — all crucial to preparing your meals and satiating your growing hunger.

The very same analogy holds true for chipmusic: the personality that a musician puts into their work; the level of composition the song yields; and the success of mixing which helps to amplify the song. In this sense, the composition is the recipe; personality the ingredients; and the method the musician is producing their album on and the song mixing is the cookware.

You’re probably thinking why I’m making all of these silly analogies to food and food prep, am I right? Without further adieu…
