We’ll Process Your Nostalgia For You Wholesale

Well, I found this online while surfing randomly. The 8bitpeoples… A group of musicians whose instruments are based on now-ancient computer technology. Particularly, 8-Bit music. I’ve listened to a bit. Some of it is neat, some of it reminds you of very old video games, and some of it sounds startlingly new. This isn’t just sampling in the theme from Mario Bros., it’s new tunes with old tech.

All of their musical accomplishments aside, this glorification of obsolete computer technology is fascinating. Quite a bit of our culture is pre-processed, in a state of reminding you of your past. Two current movies in theatres are only being made because their is a built-in nostalgia junkie audience. Of which group I place myself, as well…

I don’t have a fully developed thesis on this subject, so I’ll stop the rambling, and let you browse through their discography. Maybe you’ll reminded of many nintendoes past…

  1. Makes you realize how fast our lives in the western world are moving when sounds our computers made five years ago are now nostalgic. We’re nostalgic for things that weren’t even around that long!
