YES! The much anticipated Vol.9 is finally out. After a year of busy schedules and fans of the series knocking on our virtual doors we've managed to put together yet another volume.

Compiled by game music aficionado Surlaw The Mai, Infinite Game Music Vol.9 - Boss Battles is loaded with 15 tracks of pure darkness and intense action. This volume is heavy on the NES and SNES consoles but also features tracks from arcade, PS3 and Sega Master System. And it's yours to keep!

Infinite Game Music Update!

It has been over a year since our last release, but Infinite Game Music is not dead! I've just been terribly busy with my own music, work and some private issues for the last year.

I would like to thank all of you that have shown interest in this project. I wouldn't care to make these compilations if no one were listening to them. Luckily, there are plenty of listeners out there and I recieve a fair amount of email from listeners that truly enjoy the volumes which of course, makes me really glad.

I noticed an increasing interest in chiptune and video game music some year or two ago. Today, there seems to be even more interest in this genre which is really cool. In the latest issue of English mag Future Music for example, a guy asks of ways to make chiptune music. Future Music answers and sheds a little light on the chiptune scene and states that several modern artists also have been incorporating chiptune-style sounds into their music. I've been experiment myself a bit with a modern tool like Reason along with stuff created in Famitracker (true 8-bit Nintendo sound freeware software). The results are quite interesting. :)

How about Infinite Game Music? Well, we're planning for a new Vol.9. I hope it can be ready in about a month, which would be at the end of September. If you have any ideas of a concept for this volume please email them to me. Even if you've done so already, email me your suggestions again, I will definetely consider all ideas.

Rock on!

EDIT: This is going to be a real cool theme volume. The release date has been postponed a couple of weeks but I really hope we can have this volume out during October! Please keep visiting for more updates.

Infinite Game Music Vol.8 Released!

It's here at last! The new Vol.8 also known as Town Music is a theme album compiled by Stephen Tanner. It sports 21 tracks from RPG towns, fighting streets, platform cities and more! Stephen is a scientist living in San Diego and is a huge fan of VGM and chiptune. Like I also did when I was a kid, he used to collect video game music by holding a walkman up against the television.

I'm very satisfied with Stephen's game music knowledge and his ability to compile this complex album.

The cover art was made in just a couple of days by pixel artist Dmauro (Dave Mauro). "I was kind of thinking about in Simon's Quest how the city goes from night to day/good to evil and how towns in videogames are either bright and cheery or dark and devious." he says. Both Stephen and I totally digged Dave's work.

Now go get it!

Infinite Game Music Vol.8 Scheduled!

As the IGM series evolve new ideas are born and new people guests us with cool ideas. The new compilation is in the making, this time it's a  theme album featuring around 20 tracks.

During the first seven volumes we've focused quite a bit on NES music. I've been looking forward to focus more on other platforms. Vol.8 will feature less NES and more arcade and Genesis music instead. It's scheduled for release around July 20th.

Keep visiting us for more information!

Edit: I apologize for the delay of this volume. We are working on the cover art it should be out in a week or two. Please be patient! =)

Infinite Game Music Vol.7 Released!

Introducing IGM Vol.7, a milestone in the Infinite Game Music series. Why you might ask? Well, it's the first volume compiled entirely by someone else without me getting involved.

Vol.7 is made by no other than Baron Knoxburry from Battle of the Bits with graphics by his sidekick u.i.

I'm totally blown away by the Baron's compilation. It's so professionally executed with superb selections and track manipulations never used before on Infite Game Music. He's made an awesome job reviving tracks from really old games like Balloon Fight and Excite Bike seamlessly mixing them with newer ones from games like R-Type and Sonic the Hegdhog 2.

Have a look at this impressive volume now!

Vol.5 new version!

"What the hell is this?" you might ask. Well, a while ago I read somewhere that it was "too bad the quality of the compilation is a little low". Hmmm, that's not true, I thought. Then a couple of weeks ago I sent some other compilations to dmauro who also asked me if I've done something with the volume levels. "What the hell?"

I started to check my software, plugins and everything and found that I've actually had an equalizer activated that wasn't suppose to be on. This equalizer was also on when I worked with Vol.5! So, I started over again and now that I'm finished I can clearely hear that the sound quality of the old version is crap.

I'm terrible sorry for this inconvenience, there is a new improved version available for download! I've also made some small changes to Delta (longer version), IK+ (higher volume) and Actraiser (better transition).

Eightecs - Highway Action

I've being playing around with the superb NES music creation tool Famitracker.

The result is a small online EP called Highway Action. It contains eight fast paced action tracks. Don't expect too much, I'm a beginner and it's just for fun but I think it turned out pretty decent.

Get it here! :)

Newsletter

I was a little optimistic when we started the newsletter. I thought we could provide you with quality chiptune news at least once a month, but I was wrong. It takes time to write good news and our focus and efforts should be on the music compilations. Thus, the newsletter disappears and we'll see if it returs in the future or not.

We recommend you to visit chiptune news site VORC. Hally and his team has delivered high quality chiptune news for over five years and he keeps doing a fantastic job. All respect to him/them.
