Pre Show Event:
Music theory for chip musicians by Animal Style

This talk will attempt to cover general music theory concepts and how they relate to creating chip music or video game tunes. A quick overview of intervals, scales, chords, forms, rhythms, and harmony will be reviewed, and following this, there will be a discussion about how these concepts relate to making music in the electronic medium as opposed to using standard instruments. This workshop is an attempt to look past the technical details of trackers and sequencers in order to get to the heart and inner workings of our notes, chords and rhythms i.e. how they interact to create what we call chip music.
