"Loops and bloops" - Music of the Commodore 64 games 


This article is designed to introduce readers to the music of the C64. Discussing the technical constraints of C64's SID soundchip, Karen Collins shows the conventional ways in which the chip was used, compares some well-known, pre-composed songs which were covered on the C64 in various games and then explores approaches to interactivity and looping in Commodore games music.
