Using just an old GameBoy Light and a copy of Little Sound DJ Chris recently finished composing the score to the new 8-Bit video game inspired Greenpeace viral EU vs CO2, created by London based production company Man+Hatchet. Greenpeace is concerned about car carbon emissions in Europe. Cars are currently responsible for about 12% of Europe’s car emissions, and have steadily increased between 1990 and 2008. At the moment Greenpeace is trying to get EU parliament to impose more legislations on European car companies, ideally to cut carbon emissions in half by 2025. This would result in less oil drilling, less pollution, and more fuel economic cars. If that’s something you’d like, you can sign the petition on the associated website at euvsco2.com.
The chiptune soundtrack was created using the GameBoy based tracker software Little Sound DJ. Shown in action below:
