about

My first chiptune release.

All sounds were created using a gameboy running the program LSDj, a tenor saxophone, and a sound file of Star Trek sound effects.

As much as instrumental music can be about something, here were my inspirations for each song:

Track 1 - My take on Sirius by the Alan Parsons Project
Track 2 - Based on the sensation of a headache caused by eating too much pizza
Track 3 - An attempt to make something high energy in a major key
Track 4 - Based on the characters Data and Geordi La Forge from Star Trek: The Next Generation
Track 5 - Based on the TV show Kenny VS. Spenny

The cover art is a data bent Gameboy Camera picture of my brother and I from the year 199X.

Steven Boyar was never cool enough to be in a band. Instead he makes weird music with his dad's saxophone and a gameboy he bought at a garage sale. Expect jazzy riffs, improvised solos, and jokes about cats. Once there were marshmallows.
