Chip Mom’s Kitchen #48: Snickerdoodles

Posted by

Cooking for this article gives me a wonderful excuse to try to find new and different recipes that are not only delicious, but are often straight forward for the novice baker. I also like to find things that are quick to make because sometimes time is limited and we don’t want to spend the afternoon in the kitchen when we could be played Zelda or Hollow Knight or OneShot or Rocket League. But this month, I felt a call towards my traditional roots (and the Penzey’s Cinnamon in my cupboard), so we’re going to make…

Snickerdoodles!

Aydan Appreciates: ‘started commuting’ by Ello Costello

Posted by

Hey there, ChipWINners. It’s been a few months since I’ve written an article due to some extremely time-occupying life events, but I’m happy to be back now! At the end of May, Cheapbeats released an EP showcasing a new artist in the community named Ello Costello. This artist certainly isn’t a stranger to producing music; he’s released a few EPs independently prior to this, such as the freely composed ‘Just For Fun‘ and the environmentally influenced ‘Small Windows‘. With influence and assistance from DonutShoes, an artist who’s been featured on ‘ChipWIN: Volume 5‘ and on ‘Volume 6‘, Ello Costello makes his stunning debut in our niche with ‘started commuting’. Throughout this EP, Ello Costello draws influence from morning cityscapes, the excitement of travel, and his own musical interests. Let’s see what this release has in store for us!

Clover Chain Reacts To: Chiptunes4Autism – Volume 3

Posted by

A little over a month ago, Chiptunes4Autism released their highly anticipated ‘Volume 3: Forces of Neurodivergence’ compilation. Spanning around an hour and a half, the album is part of an ongoing fundraising nonprofit run by Gustuf Young (Asperkraken), focused on promoting autism positivity, and empowering people on the spectrum. Uniting a diverse group of chiptune artists from all around the world, with all kinds of backgrounds, Chiptunes4Autism organizes live showcases and a yearly compilation album. The earnings are donated to a few different causes that support opportunities, advocacy, and resources – all while giving musicians, neurodiverse or otherwise, a helpful and accepting community in the process.

Chip Bit Sid Takes On : HarleyLikesMusic – Steel City Zone

Posted by

For this week’s review, I have the distinct pleasure of reviewing the newest album of one of my biggest influences – HarleyLikesMusic’s new ‘Steel City Zone’ as released on Thebasebit. I’ve known Harley for a few years now, first meeting him just before he got into making music on LSDJ and to say his music leaves an impression would be an understatement. After two wildly successful albums released on the Cheapbeats label, Harley is back again with his old tricks – and some new ones too. As someone who cites Harley as a major influencer of my own techniques, I think I’m quite lucky that I get the chance to talk about this with you – it’s not often one gets to discuss someone who has brought so much to the LSDJ game.

Progression: Teoría Musical 113 – Simplicidad, Limitación y Cuando Menos es Más

Posted by

Artículo orginal de Tuberz Mcgee. Traducción al Español por Pixel_Guy.

Hola, Amigos y Amigas:

El mes pasado hablamos sobre el concepto de estructura, forma y crear frases musicales cohesivas. Estamos en un punto en el que estos conceptos son un tanto complicados, así que recomiendo mucho que vayas y leas mis artículos pasados, que pueden ayudarte a contextualizar lo que hemos aprendido hasta ahora. Desarrollaremos lo que cubrimos el mes pasado con todos los elementos de la teoría musical entremezclados para crear una sola y refinada frase musical. Hemos aprendido mucho sobre cómo hacer material musical muy emocionante y que te puede hacer levantar las cejas, pero, ¿siempre debe estar lleno de todos esos conceptos complejos? ¿Está  bien que en ocasiones solo se utilicen tres acordes y una melodía simple? Creo que es momento de averiguarlo.

Vamos a ello.

Estoy muy feliz de que el artículo de este mes sea sobre la simplicidad. Este en específico me llevo un gran total de dos minutos de edición.
