Why do we find the sounds of 8-bit music so nostalgic, even those who grew up in a time when video games no longer had 8-bit soundtracks? Then, it was used out of necessity, and today it is used to add a level of creativity and to evoke a sense of nostalgia. Composer and author Daryl Banner returns to the podcast to talk about his experience with 8-bit music as both a composer of that medium as well as someone who still enjoys his childhood video games.
