Musically, the Trials EP is carried by a central theme of dealing with and adapting to unforeseen challenges, and the changes we must make to do so. Sonically, it is an exploration of chip sounds; an attempt to expand upon the chipmusic palette in a way that still hearkens back to its foundation while exploring new, fun territory.
Special thanks to Mark Barry, Scott Chipman, Matt Virzi, and everyone else that I bounced ideas off of during the process of writing this, and to Bradford Hastings for just being an awesome friend and mentor in all things life/audio. Extra special thanks to Chrissy Kurpeski for awesome album art and logo design, and Bill Mueller for doing a fantastic job mastering everything. As always, thanks to my family for their support in my musical endeavors, and to anyone and everyone who listened to/bought/said anything nice about the Ranger Wars OST for encouraging me(indirectly or otherwise) to push onward on the path of chipmusic.
