376 / nanolooping

here is a little composition i made with the new iphone version of nanoloop.

nanoloop was developed years ago for the original gameboy as an on-the-go music making tool that quickly grew a huge underground following.  other similar tools have popped up throughout the years but i always loved nanoloop’s ultra minimalist interface. to me, the iphone version is even more wonderful than the original.

i’ve never been a big fan of the chiptunes genre but there is something that i love about the gritty textures and lo-fi nature of the sounds involved.  the music i made with nanoloop is a kind of slow motion chiptune… clocking in at a glacial 6 bpm.  the voices you hear is a little bit of winter olympics commentary.

hope you like it.
