Chipflip appeared in 2008 as a chipmusic research blog for a book chapter and master thesis. Since then the blog has also dealt with the cultures, aesthetics and ideologies of eg the demoscene, 8-bit art, text graphics, retro archiving, etc.

It was also a label of sorts, for a few years, and is since 2017 intertwined with the protoDATA label.

Chipflip is maintained by me, Anders Carlsson (aka Goto80) and I’ve been a chipmusician and demoscener since 1992. Publications, talks and other information

    Hey man! Im currently doing my honours thesis on video game music and technology, and was wondering if you knew of any good academic sources, or composers of video game music who would be willing to be interviewed? Im still in the “data capturing phase” of the research so anything would be great. Thanks!

    • chipflip Says:

      Hi, there’s a list of academic writing here: https://chipflip.wordpress.com/chipmusic
      As for who’s willing to be interviewed, I guess you’ll just have ask to them :)

    • chipflip Says:

      Oh, and also, if you’re willing to share the text once it’s finished it would be interesting to read it!

    • Nicolas Williams Says:

      cool thanks, was just wondering if you came across any composers who were particularly willing to give interviews :D Sure, it will only be done around october this year, and will consist of around 30 odd pages of double spaced type, but i could upload it, and you would be more than welcome to host it on your site, or just use it for your own reading if you like :) thanks again
