The long-awaited IDM chipmusic-on-chip album 'Today' is released as a physical 16-bit cartridge for the Sega Megadrive/Genesis video game console. The sound is generated at playtime by the Yamaha YM2612 FM synthesizer chip that is built into the console.
The concept is to do away with the conventional audio recording which is the standard format for practically all music now released.
Breathing new life into this obsolete Sega console in 2010, 'Today' aims to reinvigorate interest in old hardware and the idea of listening to music where the sound is generated each time you listen.
The cartridge is available for purchase via this link. You'll need to select the correct option for postage from the drop down box according to your locality. European postage should be the same as the UK. Anyone who has already sent a pre-order or even expressed interest will get first preference.
I'm assembling these by hand so there may sometimes be delays but I will keep everyone well informed.
