Kind of bloop: Chiptune Album

Not seen a mention of this on here yet.

I read about this album in the paper this morning, a kind of retro-remake of Miles Davis' album Kind of Blue...

Bit more info here:

Ladies and gentleman of the Internet, I think today we may have found the best possible application for chiptune music--that uber-geeky genre utilizing vintage game console's music synthesizers, real or software-emulated, as the sole instrumentation. It just so happens that faithful covers of jazz classics sound great: the pleasures of one of my favorite albums of all time intermingling beautifully in my (significant) brainspace cubby where the Contra and Tecmo Bowl themes are on infinite loop.

OK, at the risk of sounding cranky here:

Somebody gets people to "donate" thousands of dollars, creates 8-bit musak, and then turns around and sells it. The whole web is abuzz with this album right now. Marketing genuis? You bet. Creative genius? Not so much.

I love Miles Davis and I love chiptunes, but the hype about this is unwarranted. I've heard the album and am not that impressed- we (C64&Amiga people, as well as other chiptuners) have been doing this sort of thing for years.

Well I wasn't praising it or belittling it, I was just delivering the news

I've not heard it!
