Stokin’ the Forge: ‘Polyhedron’ by Laser Life

Posted by

What’s caught the attention of the Forge this month?  Why, a wee bit of Icelandic Chiptune to break up the summer heat.  While Breki “Laser Life” Mánason released Polyhedron to the world back in early April, it only just recently crossed my desk. When it did, Laser Life’s work blending chiptunes with guitar licks caught my attention, and a curiosity of the state of the chipscene on everyone’s favorite near arctic volcanic island reeled me in.  Join me past the fold dear chiptuners, where not only will we dig into the album itself, but we’ll take a moment to pick Laser Life’s brain.

Sup y’all? =) Pres Hoodie here, somehow still alive post-MAGFest 2016 (damn, that was a crazy, wonderful adventure!). In the aftermath of such, I’m bringing you an interview with a cool cat that I’ve been acquainted with since my very first MAGFest (MAG 9). It also happens to be the event where he got his start performing live chipmusic. There’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard of him and his imminent sophomore album, ‘Lunaria’. Yup, of course I’m talking about Dan Behrens aka Danimal Cannon! Enjoy!
