John Greska – Chiptune For The Chipper

Okay, so maybe Chiptune or 8-bit music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but all of us videogame revellers would be lost without it, whilst we’re collecting rings or fighting the boss, we need the upbeat synthesised renditions to keep us on our A Game. But what if we were to cross genres and allow for chiptune to collide with indie. If you’re thinking that would sound insane; you’re totally right.

Illinois based music visionary John Greska is an indie composer for video games and film that was mad enough to allow this chaos to happen. The result? An inventive sound which can only be described as a collective of contagious chipper madness. John’s passion for classical and instrumental music shines through his tracks in a chaotically poignant way. 8-bit powered music is only growing in popularity, with an indie edge, it’s sure to go down a treat! There are now entire festivals dedicated to the genre of synthesised retro gaming music. It’s original intention to accompany you through your gaming experience has transcended into a surrealist musical experience to enjoy away from your console and enjoy it in a more social setting!

If you’re looking for music to take you on a mind warp of an experience, look no further than John Greska’s tracks!

A&R Factory Present: Karmic

Karmic derives from the word Karma.  Everything we do or say, as human beings, has intention.  To actively be aware of yourself and how you affect others is a mindful activity.  Knowing that you have the power to be the light with how you speak is Karmic.  Pushing a friend to be his or her best is Karmic.  Living and creating with the intention of bringing people together is Karmic.  Accepting life situations as they come and having the power to be a leader through madness is Karmic.  Inspiring people to be good to each other and to work together as one is Karmic.

We are a band of musicians, artists, and life adventurers that strive to inspire people with not only our music, but our vision of the world.  We write about our lives.  We write about people we know.  We write about experiences we have had.  We hope our songs can make you laugh, cry, think, and feel.  The good and bad.

We invite everyone to experience our world, and to share positive messages in the world.  We are all in this together after all.  Let’s create art. Let’s create conversations.  Let’s paint a better picture of this world.  Let’s push to be our best.  We are Karmic, and so are you.
