Sadly, the "lyrics over chiptune" pattern, which is very close to my heart, is considered a derivative work and requires permission from the original composer. Tracking down retro video game composers sounds like a nightmare, and I'd hate to have to bail on a project simply because we can't obtain explicit permission from an obscure artist. Later in the week, I will prepare Crash Man and 1943 for publication and attempt to release as traditional covers referencing the original composers.
Got a song in mind we should cover? What style would you want to hear it in? Or perhaps you’ve got a great angle for an original piece...?
Don’t be shy. Tell us about it:
