It all began with the acclaimed Commodore 64. Music trackers (such as Renoise in 2000) were avidly used by programmers for creating and composing songs on a computer, treating it as an instrument for the first time in history. This feat helped pave the way for decades of advancement in music software, leading up to today's modern Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) and studio capabilities.
Advancements in computer technology coupled with the improved software of DAWs, allowed for the applications to expand their capabilities beyond what was thought possible at the time of their inception.
Taking inspiration from this development in computer technology and the history of music production, KipJaw blends musical elements of this and his favorite video games he grew up with into a unique, musical atmosphere of nostalgia.
Sit back and listen as you are taken on a journey through a virtual world reminiscent of the pixels and bleeps which many of us spent our childhood in.
