Chiptune/Electronic/8-bit musician Inverse Phase has taken the entire Nine Inch Nails’ album, Pretty Hate Machine and reworked it using various sounds from 8-bit systems. The result is the aptly named new album, “Pretty Eight Machine“. Filled with sounds from computers and consoles like SID/6581 (Commodore 64), POKEY (Atari 800), straight 2A03 (NES), AY/SCC+ (MSX+Metal Gear 2 or Snatcher cartridge), SN76489 (Sega Master System), 2A03+VRC6 (Famicom+Castlevania 3 cartridge), LR35902 (Game Boy), and OPLL (MSX-MUSIC or Japanese Sega Master System), the album faithfully demakes and at the same time remakes such NIN classics as Head Like a Hole and Terrible Lie as “Head like an I/O” and “Atarible Lie”. For the pun work alone this album is worth checking out, but don’t take my word for it, take a listen for yourself below and then go over to the official website and order yourself up a copy.
