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.

Performance Notes

Bitscapes is a piece for any combination of instruments, including winds, strings, and mallet percussion and fixed media. This piece can be performed with as few as three players and parts are entirely adaptable. I encourage you to adapt this piece and each part for your ensemble, which will allow for a truly unique performance.
