Bear & Walrus • Image Poems
"Epigram" by Bear & Walrus. Keeping with our music-themed posts today, here’s one of 10 tracks from the chiptune/baroquetronica group’s new Image Poems album inspired by “early 20th century poetry focused around ideas about the precision of imagery and the simplicity of nature.”
I wanted to feature this stuff, too, but my huge backlog of work stole all my time today (Tumblr’s one-song-a-day audio uploading limit didn’t help):
- Dance Machine, Christian Montoya’s free album full of “all-original dirty bassy dance music made entirely with the KORG DS-10/DS-10 Plus”

“RadSalad" by UncleBibby. After we posted his arrangement of the Legend of Zelda dungeon theme, UncleBibby linked me to this original composition, also made entirely in the DSiWare app Rytmik. Pretty dang catchy!
"DoneJohn" by UncleBibby. Following last week’s WarioWare DIY-created “Mega Micromusic” album, another interesting DS-based work: a cover of The Legend of Zelda's dungeon theme made entirely in the $8 DSiWare music app Rytmik!
There are so many ways to make music with the DS: two Korg DS-10 carts (and the upcoming M01), two Jam Sessionses, six different Music On instruments from Abylight, Rhythm Core Alpha, Electroplankton, tapping on the case with your hands…
