Sage G.C. I never thought 8 Bit Weapon would be able to beat Vaporware Soundtracks 2.0 but, with this absolutely stunning piece of sub-culture art, they did. I really hope there is a Vol. 2 because this is a perfect example of how chip-music is not just a gimmick, but a beautiful genre all its own. Do your imagination a favor by closing your eyes and drifting through this 8-bit galaxy of a record tonight. Favorite track: Phase I Lexical Analysis.

Akira K. It would be unfair to this excellent album to constrain it to the realm of chipmusic. It manages to transcend into proper ambient electronica terrain, regardless of how it is made.
I hope I can listen to more work in this vein coming from 8BW. Favorite track: Phase III Refactoring.

Marco Zonta As Martin Galway wrote on his page, Phase 1 Lexical Analysis is a piace of art. Magnificent track, the best chip track since the end of c64 in my opinion. Something to be proud of.


Our new chipmusic concept album is a collection of ambient music crafted to help facilitate relaxation. Over 1 hour of mind defragmenting tones for you to enjoy! Each sound is hand crafted from the Commodore 64 personal computer's SID sound chip. Portions of the album were co-written by a computer as many of the notes were set to be selected by the CPU at random! All tones have been digitally processed for maximum smoothness and optimum ambiance. Relax and Enjoy!

See what some original 1980's Commodore 64/128 SID Composer legends have to say about the album:

"It's beautiful... it's a work of art... genius." - Martin Galway Original C64 Music Composer

"Top notch! I both enjoy and respect it." - David Warhol Original C64 Music Composer

"Very nice and soothing lengthy 8-bit soundscapes... nice for digital meditation! Nice work ! " - Jeroen Tel Original C64 Music Composer

"So ambient my hips fell off" - Ben Daglish Original C64 Music Composer
