This time, though, it’s no whistles, no bells, no effects — just pure chiptune goodness. This is his latest effort, Legitimacy. About his goal to create a true chiptune album, he says.
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.

The Cheap Dinosaurs S/T soundsÂ Â promising, as the project is explained byÂ low-bit composer Dino Lionetti when he states, “Composed on a Nintendo gameboy rigged with a sequencing cartridge, the album expertly moves from jazzy bit-scapes to algorithmic grooves that are equally suited for adventure, research- and romance. The suite of nine songs are at once challenging and rewarding, propelling Cheap Dinosaurs own brand of chip-music to the forefront of experimental pop.”
