The Evolution of Gameboy Music: From Tetris to Trey Frey

When: Thu., Feb. 4, 7-8 p.m. 2016

In this class we’ll explore the music of the Nintendo Gameboy, from its original release over 25 years ago to its use in modern electronic music. We’ll look at how the limitations of the Gameboy inspired creativity in the original game composers and how the game music developed in complexity over the lifespan of the console. We’ll also explore the current chiptune movement including a full demonstration of how musicians are using obsolete game hardware, like the Gameboy, to compose new and exciting pieces of music.
