Release Zero was created as part of the RPM Challenge, a public dare to create a coherent album using the time only in the month of February to
conceive, compose, record, produce, and master. Since this coincided
with participation in the Battle of the Bits Winter Chip IV competition,
about half of the songs were composed with that contest's rules in
mind, although there is much retouching so that the result here is thin,
light, and relaxing, instead of the shrill and overpowering sound often
found in chiptunes. The result is an album with an atmospheric flow
between tracks, designed to be played at a medium soft volume and
provide a gentle, melodic background to your next thirty minutes.
