TRONIMAL - Intergalactic Nomad CD (Gameboy-Music)

TRONIMAL - Intergalactic Nomad CD (Gameboy-Music)

product description

There is nothing finer that hearing some 8-bit music which reminds us of the good old times. For this reason and due to the passion of Markus' for music, the idea to develop and publish a chiptune CD came around.

Those of you who have attended any retro events in Germany will probably have heard of the artist who goes by the name of "Tronimal".

The young man from Wuppertal, north-west Germany excited many with his shows at these events. The equipment which he uses is a couple of Nintendo Gameboys and a small mixer. He makes his shows as entertaining as he can.

Tronimal gets a lot of attention in the retro-area from the audience at Gamescon. This is mainly due to him having his own small stage.

The songs which he plays from the Gameboy have been composed on a computer using a soundtracker. Sounds are digitised before being handled by a diverse range of modules to handle the recorded sounds.

The sound of the 8-bit handheld is well known to many households as so many households owned the Gameboy. This is mainly due to the price range which the system was set at being low. In addition, with "Tetris" coming pre-supplied with the system, this meant that there was more of a demand for the system.

Over in Japan, there were also other additions for the Gameboy, such as an oscilloscope, sonar, radio etc.

Due to the Gameboy's proliferation and the emerging chiptune scene, the wide-ranging sounds of the system were employed by a lot of chiptune artists. Some of these artists provide a few songs and some provide full albums. From the latter group came Tronimal, a name which is something special for any 8-bit chiptune enthusiast.

You know that he has passion for his work due to his attention to detail being shown in each and every tune that he produces. Everything is given the "Gameboy Style", including the cover and the music itself. More on this later...

Here is a little taste of the CD's tracklist as per the back of the case:

0000 0001 – Reboot The Future

0000 0010 – Wolves, Blood, Dungeon!

0000 0011 – My Robots

0000 0100 – (Nintendo) <Sugarcube>

0000 0101 – Dual Robot Suite

0000 0110 – Computer Control /+ Tom Woxom

0000 0111 – Cyborg

0000 1000 – Notruf

0000 1001 – Zuhause

0000 1010 – Frei

0000 1011 – Erde

0000 1100 – Caterpillar /+ Silvero

 

Since Tronimal himself is very open when it comes to music, you will be able to hear a lot of his sounds within the "Intergalactic Nomad" album.

He is very aware that he shouldn't overdo the Nintendo sound within his music as some others do. He looks to add his own subtleties in order that the sound isn't too overloaded. Tronimal manages this balancing act well. In some of his songs he also uses some singing which adds some entertainment to an already entertaining album.

It is quite worthwhile to take a look at the text which is printed in the CD booklet. It is printed in a somewhat chic pixellised font. Some of the songs in the album start off quite quiet and then build up into a normal song whilst becoming more complex as the song goes on.

When listening, you feel that you could be in the heyday of the Gameboy, taking you back to the early 90s. The vocals somehow add to this feeling.

The initial version of the album has been extended with two bonus tracks which are well worth listening to. There is a song with a vocal piece and also an instrumental for you to indulge in.

Often on the chiptune scene, a burnt CD-R is offered. It should be mentioned that with this purchase, you are getting a factory pressed CD with a well printed booklet.

So, if you're after some wonderful 8-bit music, bring some nice tunes into your life with this album.
