Loud Formations is a varied collection of works from over the past 4 years, exploring the aesthetics of the YM2612 sound chip’s FM synthesis. To use the sounds, YM2612 patches were converted via a python script into Yamaha DX7 SYX files. The album aims to evoke the postmodern aesthetic of the early to mid 90s through reverse emulation. The YM2612 is basically a stripped down Yamaha DX7, and the music produced for the YM2612 (Sega™ Genesis) chip emulated the sometimes outdated sounds of New Jack Swing, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, Techno, and commercial Muzak. The songs on this album aim to explore those genres, in an updated vernacular, with a compiled YM2612 patch library.

Composed and produced by Vrtua in San Francisco, Toronto, Tokyo, & Miami 2013-2017
