Who is Adventure Kid?
I don’t know if it makes sense, but Adventure Kid is a pixel character, a lifestyle and a project. It’s a porno too, but that has nothing to do with me… ^___^ Oh and there is a NES game called Adventure Kid that is a rip-off of another NES game called Adventure Island. Also HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME!
I’ve seen that kid before!?
I got a lot of inspiration from a game I used to play. Two hints: “War against Ciygas” and the Japanese version was much cooler than the US version.
What’s your setup like?
Live: PC (FL Studio), Octapad, MS20-controller, APC40 (at rare occasions I use the Game Boy live)
Studio: PC (FL Studio), Octapad, C64 (Prophet 64), Game Boy (LSDJ), APC40, a cople of hardware synths some microphones.
I guess you want to know what to get if you want to make music that has some similarities to what I do… Get a DAW and learn it and get Game Boy with a LSDJ cartridge. EXPERIMENT!
In computer architecture it refers to data units that are at most 8 bits or 1 octet wide. But the term is now used for retro-gaming, video game inspired music and pixel art. I assume a big part why it’s called 8-bit is because of “NES 8-bit”. The sounds were seldom 8-bit actually.
Is Adventure Kid 8-bit?
I’m 8-bit and then some. Don’t be fooled by the bits that I got, I’m still, I’m still Kiddo from the block. I use stuff from 4-bits up to 64-bits.
A chiptune, or chip music, is music written in sound formats where all the sounds are synthesized in real time by a computer or video game console sound chip. Some people has an opinion that only music made with computers/consoles with sound devices with some synthesizer like chip should be called Chiptune. So music made with NES 8-bit and C64 would be chiptune but music made with Super Nintendo or Amiga would not be chip tune as they are sample based. I don’t really care. I like the sounds and thats it.
Is Adventure Kid Chiptune?
No not really. I do use obsolete video games and computers to make my music but I also use normal synthesizers, samplers and effects. I think that’s a no-no if you want to make Chiptune.
Bitpop is a type of electronic music, where at least some part of the music is made using old 8-bit computers and video game consoles. Maybe even if it’s just inspired. I don’t know.
Is Adventure Kid Bitpop?
Yes and like ten more genres I guess.
What’s up with you and I’m from Barcelona?
I’m a member of I’m from Barcelona but I used to be the lost son of I’m from Barcelona – or the black sheep. I didn’t show up for the first rehearsals and recordings. I remixed some songs and we did some tours together and then I was asked to join. Happy ending. Roll credits.
What’s your shoesize?
It’s 46 European standards. Best question ever.
Video games are art, and i like them for a lot of reasons. These are some of my all time favourites: Another World (Amiga), Chrono Trigger (SNES), Bubble Bobble (C64), Rampage (NES), Mega Man (NES / SNES). I’ve been hooked up to a pretty useless and time wasting game called Harvest Moon (SNES) that game is kind of a drag but so addictive. I enjoy a lot of other games, but I don’t game much any more.
