Progression: Teoría Musical 114 – Un ejemplo de Proceso

Posted by

Artículo Original de Tuberz Mcgee. Traducción al español por Pixel_Guy.

Hola, Amigos y Amigas:

El mes pasado cubrimos el concepto de mantener las cosas simples por una innumerable cantidad de razones. Estas razones incluyen restringir nuestras potenciales posibilidades musicales y resaltar secciones con variaciones al material junto con algunas otras ideas.  Estamos en un punto donde estos conceptos son algo difíciles; es por eso que te recomiendo que regreses y revises mis artículos pasados, los cuales te ayudarán a contextualizar lo que hemos visto hasta ahora. En serio. Estamos desarrollando nuestro entendimiento  actual sobre la teoría musical para construir un ejemplo de cómo utilizar estas herramientas para escribir una sección musical.

Vamos a ello.

No lo sé… ¿Es algún tipo de instructivo? ¿Alguna Receta de Cocina? Las metáforas son raras.

Progression: Music Theory 114 – An Example of Process

Posted by

Hey dudes and dudettes,

Last month we covered the idea of keeping things simple for a myriad of reasons. These reasons include us restricting potential musical possibilities and enhancing sections with diversity of material, among many others. We’re at a point now where these concepts are quite difficult, so I highly recommend that you go back and read through my previous articles which will help contextualise what we know by this point. Seriously. We’re building on all of our current understanding of music theory to construct an example of how you might use these tools to write a section of music.

Let’s jam.

I don’t know… something about instructions? Cooking? Metaphors are weird.

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.
