I’m proud to finally present my first true chip album, “Legitimacy”! This entire EP was composed in MIDI using trash80’s awesome mGB interface, and recorded line out from a single prosound DMG Game Boy with no external EQ or effects.

A chiptune/electronic composer and arranger, halc is also the founder of 9-bit Records, a non-profit netlabel for electronic music.
