@pmc: great, thanks! i'm in touch with brian postma now to see how he remembers it
@photon: if a definition of chipmusic does not include protracker chip modules, i am a bit sceptical. apart from the difficulty of defining it in terms of hardware/software, chipmusic has expanded during the past decade to become a pop phenomenon, where technology/history is often irrelevant. ie, it's a socially constructed genre like any other. perhaps it always was.
@frog: hehe, yeah, mobile phones has been a forgotten tool for chipmusic. with smartphones now, it's beginning to change. emulation population!
