Program Notes

Bitscapes builds off of sounds indicative of popular 8-bit gaming systems of the 1970s and '80s. Beginning with a simple sine wave along with the sounds of the instrumental ensemble, this piece paints a sonic landscape of a retro style known as Chiptunes or BitPop that originated in the mid-1970s.
