Since the dawn of the computer age our computers have beeped or clicked at us. These beeps and clicks were generally for the purpose of warning of an imminent crash but a few clever people thought it was a good idea to put them to work in a rhythm and musical computing was born. The obvious place for these tunes was the world of computer and video games.
The music and sound effect within the early computer and console games is truly unique. Take a look at the seminar video below that traces back in time the evolution of chip music - this seminar was at this years Revision 2011 event and is a truly amazing watch.
