Arman Bohn wrote in to let us know about Bits, a new album featuring 13 conceptual interpretations of classic video games.
The creation and development of the album has spanned almost two years … in which time I wrote and revised the dozen or so songs on the record.
The record also utilized many peculiar items that I personally constructed such as the Magical Toolbox, condenser microphones, special microphone preamplifiers, modified tube guitar amps and various virtual instruments of my own design.
Bits was written, recorded, and mixed by Arman, mastered by Gus Elg, with cover art by illustrator Gideon Klindt and photographer Jonah Sutherland.
