Game Boy Music (But Not the Kind You're Thinking Of)
When you hear "Game Boy music," your mind immediately jumps to the 8-bit bleeps and bloops that soundtracked your favorite childhood games. This kind of Game Boy music isn't digital, though. It's made entirely with sounds made using the Game Boy itself: button presses, cartridge slides, moving earphones in and out.
Everyone liked to tap out beats on the A and B buttons when the battery's dead or the Game Boy is off, but nobody's ever taken that little time-waster to such extreme levels. The result is a beat that would be impressive with any equipment, made even better because it was all done with a retro handheld game system.
