So I applied for a Graphic Designer & Digital / Screen Printing position at 5pm. I got a call just now from the guy who owns the business and he wants me to come in at some point in the week to have a look around as the job listing was filled a few weeks ago but there’s apparently some spots to fill coming up.

One hour is all that took from application to phonecall.

DAFUQ?! This is sounding pretty good.

retronator:

Zackery Wilson, one of my favorite chiptune artists, just released a full album!

Zackery Wilson’s “SNESQUE” is the marriage of Super Nintendo soundfonts (i.e. collections of samples from original Super Nintendo video games) and modern-day audio production (i.e. EQ, delay, reverb, filters, etc.). For each original track, Zack adhered strictly to self-imposed limitations: Each was created using only one soundfont (exclusive to each respective game), again, only taking liberties with audio production and some creative sample manipulation (i.e. pitch-shifting, time-stretching, etc.); the structure of each track limited to roughly a minute’s worth of music, looping once (in the tradition of standard video game “level” music) before fading out.

From progressive rock to jazz fusion, samba to swing, “SNESQUE” is a hodgepodge of musical styles, connected by the nostalgic sound of Super Nintendo video games and the familiarity of present-day audio production techniques.

I managed to draw the first stuff I’ve been happy with in a week! This situation really sucks but at least it can’t get much worse so there’s bound to be good times ahead.
