The music of Joseph Eidson contains rhythmic drive, crisp harmonies, and a preference for lyrical melodies. While a majority of his output is for live performers, an ongoing project utilizes technology to create music using the sounds and methods of video game composers during the 1980s and early 1990s. These short pieces called chiptunes are varied in style and substance, each containing unique challenges limited only by imagination and software design. Many of the tracks are featured on the “Quirky Minecraft” web series from Sparhawk Gaming on YouTube. In the past year Joseph released two albums of chip music via Bandcamp and current projects include combining live performers with Game Boy audio.
