What am I doing?

I want to release an album that comes from my imagination. I have been disappointed in pretty much all classic game based albums due to how overly remixed they are.

Most existing classic game albums range from dance to techno to emo, metal and so on.....

I want to deliver a package that represents what the classic games of my youth sounded like in my head as I played them. Remember playing those games with the thin digital sounds that made you so excited? Remember what your imagination made them sound like? I give you Unchipped.

I will be listing and updating the rewards here as they are designed. Here is the completed art for the t-shirt. Stay tuned as I will be updating this page and www.unchipped.com with what the other rewards will look like.

Risks and challenges

I'm going to be faced with a handful of challenges on this one...
I need to complete the rest of the album, and have it properly mixed and mastered. I also have to do all of the artwork, get this CD manufactured along with the postcards, posters and t-shirts. Then have them delivered to you.
This may sound like a lot for one dude to handle, but I have worked on an album in the past and have the experience it takes as I have played numerous shows with my band Splitbelly www.splitbelly.com. We took the stage as our own promoters, managers, and road crew.
I'm completely capable of the task at hand but I do need the funding from you the listener to make this album successful.
