8-bit chiptunes too much to handle? Tired of all these multi-layered, stereophonic sounds blasting your ears and mind from all directions? Try this on for size. Action Hero.

This is 1-bit music, from an artist under the name of Alone Coder, created with a ZX Spectrum program “Beep Tracker”. I’m sure our lonely programmer is not the only one to have ventured into this realm of the ultra-simplistic, but he (she?) is certainly the first I have heard. And might I say, I am mighty impressed, considering the limitation. I dare our own Fighter X or Kids Get Hit by Buses to take a stab at this.
