Ever wonder why Alex Mauer’s trilogy of NES chiptunes is called “Eat People”? Check out this interview over at Igloo Magazine.
Excerpt: ” I’m not really interested in chiptunes crossing into the mainstream, but it wouldn’t bother me if they did as long as it didn’t misrepresent what is going on in the chip scene. I think Anamanaguchi is good… but I’d rather see them put their guitars down and just hit play on the NES controller and stand there. (Laughs.) Not that they aren’t good or anything, it’s just that I’d rather be able to hear the NES by itself. Personally, if I was really good at playing, I’d rather make some nerd in the back of the room happy than get the whole room jumping up and down.”
