All of the tracks on this adventurous chip music compilation began with a single sample.
That's the sound of the Monowave, a Moog clone originally envisioned as a bass synth.
Hexawe, a CC-BY label for Piggy Tracker releases, put out an open call for remixes. This group of talented musicians heeded the call, looping tiny sections of the monowave sample and sequencing these instruments using their portable game console of choice. The result is Monorave, an inspiring showcase of what's possible with remixed digital soundwaves.
This compilation is truly open source in that you can download the tracker DAT files yourself and tweak them. When you do, you'll find that each song has a folder containing all the samples used in the sequence, and many of the tracks draw all of their source material from that single monowave sample.

I was hoping to start blogging here sooner. I'm Shahn/Interrupt, a programmer/DJ at WGDR (.org) - a community radio station in Plainfield, Vermont. We're a wacky bunch and I'm the only DJ to feature chip music regularly on a WGDR show.
I find a lot of chip music here. I'm working on getting in touch with all of the artists that I play (or want to play) to let them know I want to put them on the radio and figure out the best spinitron reporting.
(spinitron reporting is a result of DMCA, iirc and my strategy is to play only creative commons music during our two week reporting period as my little statement on the timeliness of DMCA)
