    LPAssociation.com and Keaton Hashimoto Present "8-Bit Theory"



    LPAssociation.com and Keaton Hashimoto Present "8-Bit Theory"
    '

    Linkin Park's music gets remixed and re-interpreted by Keaton Hashimoto in Glorious 8-Bit Splendor!

    Today, in anticipation of Linkin Park's upcoming iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch game "8-Bit Rebellion"; The Linkin Park Association and Keaton Hashimoto are proud to present to you "8-Bit Theory", a 16 track tribute album featuring 8-Bit inspired covers of some of Linkin Park's greatest hits from Hybrid Theory to Minutes To Midnight.

    Available in MP3 format and created entirely by Keaton himself over a span of several weeks, it should be noted that these songs are not the Mike Shinoda created interpretations done for Linkin Park's upcoming video game "8-Bit Rebellion". Instead "8-Bit Theory" is an unofficial and completely seperate project done by Keaton himself, which is intended as an awesome tribute to the band while also embracing video game memories of the past.

    Done without the use of just VST Plugins and software shortcuts, "8-Bit Theory" was composed entirely by Keaton (note by note) and thus provides a depth not seen in many 8-Bit interpretations of the band's music. Commenting on the album himself Keaton said:

    "It was important that the album had a unique sound unlike anything that could be found on the net, and through various uses of hardware and software, 8-Bit Theory manages to balance the softer and heavier sides of Linkin Park’s greatest hits. Utilizing 8-bit assorted sounds while keeping true to the band’s style was the most important rule of thumb during the composition process. The process resulted in a much more raw sound that allowed for range I hadn’t seen in other 8-bit interpretations on the web."

    Yeah, I'm very impressed with Keaton's work. He was originally skittish about putting this up on LPA's front page, but I felt he deserved recognition. He's a highly talented guy.

    So everyone...show him some love in this thread. Name your favorite tracks! (mine's Shadow Of The Day)

    Download it off of a friend's computer who doesn't have impossible restrictions. Burn it to a CD, and then play from the CD. Voila!

    I just want to say thanks to everyone who has commented. I really didn't know how you guys would react, but I'm relieved to see majority of the feedback has been positive thus far. Again, thank you guys very, very much.
