Hey all – I was also wondering if anyone has a copy of the song "Chimdi Mundu" by J. Arthur Keenes.

Been listening to this on repeat for the past week. Favorite jam (no pun intended): 'Repetition'.

In fact, yes. And one can indeed discern a certain grainy sonority in my latest track, which was imparted by the sand of the beach.

Thank you, sandneil. That one was inspired by deep aquatic caves in Mexico.

Hello, it is I, xX 8 BIT CHAMPION Xx. It has been years since you have last been graced by my presence here, and it has felt like an eternity I have been away, studying and cultivating pure musical skill.

In my time away, I have climbed the mountains of Tibet and rode the waves is Oahu, Hawaii.

I have walked hundreds of miles, never allowing my Gameboy and its supplementary LSDJ cartridge out of sight.

I have met with the alpacas of the Andes and the crocodiles of the Nile; I have searched the earth and therefore my soul, and have melded the two together in seamless harmony.

In my journeys, I have spoken to men of African tribes and found the men deep in the jungles,

I have spoken to men who have loves, I have spoken to men on a journey.

It made me think, who am I? Truly, who am I?

This answer never has been simple. Where does my heart lead me, why does he drag me all I go?

The answer, never being simple, seems to only manifest itself in such a simple way.

Sitting on a beach in Thailand, locals running about, a dirt road behind me. I opened my pack at sunset and held my Gameboy with its LSDJ cartridge out. I looked at it, seeing only the sand behind. The sky was a deep orange, a kind of beauty I never had experienced. These people see it every day.

I hold the Gameboy up. It blocks the sun, its rays blotting the sky. I am reminded of a painting I adored as a boy, and the Gameboy my mother gave me when I asked for Pokemon.

In this moment I knew. I could see in Darkness that I was living in the dark. I was truly blind, and this is what allowed me to see all that I could have seen; had it not been for my willingness to see, I would be stuck in one place, never having experienced what I had, and never being able to continue onward, led by my heart.

In this moment I knew, I knew that my destiny was to create a new sound never heard before, and to use the lessons from my journey to share a small piece of elation with you all.

Months, months I have worked. My LSDJ never out of sight. And so I have returned; so I am back.

Let us listen,

And God bless xX 8 BIT CHAMPION Xx.

Edit: Also, your example video of that Bach 8-bit thing... sounds like a lazy "take a midi of a song, load it into GXSCC or some other '8-bit' soundfont, export audio" deal. I personally wouldn't trust any youtube video calling itself an "8-bit cover/remake/remix" as something to follow the example of...

Oh yeah definitely it's just what I happened to be listening to at the moment based on youtube's auto play... I think that could actually be a cool idea if done well, taking baroque/classical music and making chip our it. I remember I used to have some album with a very good remix of the first movement of moonlight sonata. Is there more stuff like that?

Crack That Chip!, a Devo cover album and WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD, a Beatles cover album are both pretty cheesy titles.
