This Month in The Overworld: RRayen

Posted by

Hello dear readers! I’m Pixel Syndrome, and if you love anthropomorphised Game Boys, rainbows and cool characters with green hair, then you may already know me from my colorful entries to the ‘Chiptunes WIN: Volume 7’ alternative covers!

I’m stoked to introduce my monthly international artist focused column titled The Overworld. Of course, being a fan of classic style NES games like Adventure Island II and Legend of Zelda, when trying to find a suitable name I could not shake the concept that sometimes when playing, we cannot see the bigger picture, and so it’s helpful to see the interconnection of all levels and locations of a videogame that’s an overworld map. Hopefully this international column will help everyone discover hidden areas in places we normally wouldn’t even think about; hidden locations and bonus levels of the world of Chiptune music as we know it.

This Chiptune auteur was born in the cold lands of Trelew (Rawson department of the Chubut Province), in southern Argentina. Growing up in this small, desertic climate city, with lots of wind, where the ocean dominates the horizon, and southern winds cause sudestadas (a.k.a. Intense wind storms that may bring heavy rain) has definitely left an imprint on her art.

Happy November, folks! For this month’s interview, I talked to a multi-instrument & multi-alias chipmusican & event curator friend of mine. This cat’s done quite a bit over the last handful of years (even more than I realized!), and shows no signs of stopping any time soon!

Heya friends! It’s been a good few months since I’ve published a new interview here on the blog. Suffice it to say, I’ve been more than just a little busy in the interim….

Me as a kaomoji these last few months….

That said, I’ve very much missed both talking to awesome folk in and around our communities and sharing those insightful conversations with y’all. That’s why today, I’m hopping back on that interview train!

Presenting a very special guest and friend that’s I’ve been happy to have worked with in the intervening busy months, everyone welcome to the blog Alex Soborov aka Purely Grey of Tracked Records! Enjoy!

Hey y’all! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ It’s once again time for this month’s edition of my blog interview column, Hoodie Highlights!

April’s down-to-Earth chat features a talented singer/songwriter, chipmusician, knowledgeable curator, and all around swell guy. He’s also a lover of both sharks and donuts, so of course I’ve gotta talk to him. 

Everyone, welcome Sam Mulligan to The ChipWIN Blog!

Hey y’all! =) Been a spell since I published an interview here on the blog; the final quarter of the year rarely shows me any quarter. haha That said, I’ve a really good one to kick off 2018! Featuring a cat that’s been involved in and around chiptune longer than probably most of us, and in various ways: composing his own music, performing live, modding gear, and managing various communities. Everyone welcome to the blog, Timothy Lamb aka Trash80!
