Available on Spotify, T. Ledger’s “8 Bit” works on several levels. While music tracks touting an 8-bit description often evoke thoughts of coded gaming devices and chiptune theme songs, the Melbourne, Australia-based Ledger injects human authenticity with the vocals. With rhythmic binary sounding micro angles providing the musical context, the 4:19 track pushes on as Ledger creates an emotional atmosphere. A particular attitude and presence emerges from the recording.
A great way of getting acquainted with a music artist is through a video, including “8 Bit.” Colorful, animated graphics pulsate as the music escalates with controlled tension. At 1:14 into the track, Ledger appears, sharing the screen with animated blocks of color, at times seeming to be losing control. No doubt, a modern uneasiness intentionally grips the performance. “8 Bit” is from the 10-song, 3 hour and 28 minute album, Sue Me I Want To Die.
