Week 2 Summary

Dr Kenny McAlpine summarises the second week of his free online short course, A Bit-by-Bit History of Video Game Music.

In this video, we’ll summarise what we’ve learned in the second week.

Please note that my book, Bits and Pieces: A History of Chiptunes, is still in the final stages of preparation for publication, and should be available early in 2018. It’s not a core text for this course, but it does pick up and explore its themes in much more detail.

If you’d like to know when it’s released, or if you would like to know of any readings or public lectures that I’ll be giving around the launch, then please follow my Twitter feed, @thesonsiebogle, or drop me an email at bitsandpiecesbook@gmail.com.

Thanks for taking my short course. I do hope you’ve enjoyed it.
