Inspired by his passion for and taste in video game soundtracks, Dave's debut "Triptunes" is a marriage of NES/Famicom chiptunes and audio production, particularly celebrating time-honoured FM and retro sounds. He invites you on an expedition through colourful harmonies, vibrant rhythms and shimmering crystalline veneer, playing with themes of surprise, joy, wonder, peace, and a spiritual twist for those who look beyond the mask...
Thank you for listening!
