Music For Your NES!

Nintendo Entertainment System

Those familiar with the wonderful days of listening to fine chip tunes from your favorite NES games, would be happy to hear that a composer is releasing music for the NES. Although it isn’t of games you have played, but of original tracks that this he has created.

Alex Mauer is a somewhat well known “chiptune” creator, who has worked on many video game sounding songs, using the actual system hardware and utilities. He currently has released two albums on the Nintendo Entertainment System as well as released a new CD featuring works from various sysetms.

I currently own both of his NES albums and I have to say that he has composed some amazing music for the NES. Although, I still have to give props to Capcom who was the master of making music on the NES.
