SID Barrett

The name being a pun on the late English psychedelic songsmith, of course.

A short "Hero vs. Villain"-theme executed in the chiptune realm with all sounds (bar the sequenced kick drums) stemming from the 80's videogame era with heavy pulse width modulation and arpeggiated chords.

Aural weaponry of interest evident on this recording: All sounds (bar the kick drums) were created by an Elektron SID Station played via MIDI guitar. See the 8-bit guitar introduction on YouTube for more details and an in-depth look at both the sounds used on this recording and the conventions for working around the limitations of the Commodore 64.
