Post news RSS Frozen Synapse musician releases 8-bit album!

If you're a fan of chiptune or Frozen Synapse's music then check out No Carrier Rush by _ensnare_

Posted by on

I've had a side project on the go for a while now and it has just come to fruition. If you're a fan of lo-fi, micromusic, 8-bit or chiptune (whatever you'd like to call it!) then have a listen to No Carrier Rush by _ensnare_...

If you'd like to get hold of three free tracks and buy the album then visit the _ensnare_ site now.

EDIT - it seems that the blog has gone down, so please go directly here to buy the album.

About the album
No Carrier Rush is my return to lo-fi music. As well as my work on dance tracks and the Frozen Synapse soundtrack, it's nice to have an outlet for very melodic and experimental stuff which doesn't require a lot of fine-tuning in the sound engineering department.

This is about raw synthesized sound and big tunes! I wrote this album with Ableton Live using Plogue Chipsounds (which provides sample accurate versions of many classic sound chips) and gWem's amazing YMVST. It was written entirely on a netbook and then mixed on my more powerful desktop.

If anyone has any questions about the album then don't hesitate to ask.

All the revenue from the album goes straight to Mode 7, so if you'd like another way in which to support what we're doing and help us make Frozen Synapse as good as possible, pick up a copy today!

"No Carrier Rush", is that a reference to Starcraft? ^^
I think this is actually pretty cool stuff, even though I never listen to 'electronical' music besides some dubstep and the Prodigy. Plus buying this will support Mode 7, so ehm.. instant buy!

Thanks! It's a pun on "no carrier" and yes...carrier rushing, something that is never a good idea...unless you're HongunPrime...

Love chiptune, nice preview. Just to ask, album won`t be free for those who already made preorder of FS?

Had a lot of fun listening to this album, looking for the FS soundtrack.
