ChipWIN Volume 9: Judge Interest Form

Posted by

Only a handful or so of months in and 2020 has already been one helluva year. And that’s putting it very mildly if we’re being truly honest (much love to you and yours throughout this continued global crisis ♥). In light of this, it should come as no surprise that the annual ChipWIN Volume compilation competition is running behind. The most important bit to notice there, however, is that it is still running! Up first to mention is an important alteration to the Volume Judge Panel selection. Namely, this year we’re publishing an Interest Form to help guide the overall judge curation process. Learn more about it, and apply if you’re so inclined, below:

A Square Meal: ‘カワイイチップチューン VS カッコイイチップチューン 対決コンピレーション’ (Cute vs. Cool Chiptune)

Posted by

Confrontation is, occasionally, inevitable. Most of the time, however, we can learn from our differences and enrich our own perspective. In some cases, even highlighting these contrasting elements can be a good thing. After a spectacular showcase compilation last year, しのりゅー brings to us yet another incredible release that showcases this pixelated dichotomy. For this chapter, 56 artists explored the contrasting themes of cute and cool in their own unique styles. So let’s take a look over ‘カワイイチップチューン VS カッコイイチップチューン 対決コンピレーション’ (Kawaii Chippchūn VS Kakkoii Chippchūn: Taiketsu Conpirēshon), released through novtos.

Howdy there, chiptune buckaroos!ヾ(^∇^)

As some of y’all may well know about me by now, I’m a huge fan of spaghetti western movies. Some of my favorite childhood memories involve watching these iconic films with my Dad or one of my Grandfathers. That said, while I sincerely love the flicks themselves, it’s their soundtracks that gripped and inspired me more than anything else, with Ennio Morricone ranking foremost in my mind among their composers.

That makes it all the more fitting that, today, on Mr. Morricone’s birthday, I’m announcing our latest themed compilation influenced by that very style!

Hold on to your horses….
