What's not to love about this resurgence of nostalgia! I really am meeting a ton of kindred spirits I never knew I had. It's pretty amazing actually.
The Atari 2600 has always been in my house. I still own an original heavy sixer. The idea for the spelling came to me when I was brushing my teeth one night :) Just thought it would look kinda cool like that.
As an artist I like to create things constantly, but it doesn't mean that I want them all to be the same, I need all of them to be diferent and in terms of composition to cover more than just one kind of sound there is nothing better than a synthesizer. You can play any instrument you want which is perfect to compose any kid of sound you want.
