A chiptune, by which it may also be known as chip music, is a piece of music typically produced using digitized instrumental sounds of audio chips commonly found in 1980s-era home computers and video game consoles. In the early 1980s home computers became cheaper and more accessible than they had previously been. This led to a proliferation of personal computers and gaming consoles that were abandoned as users moved on to the next generation of software, and the hardware to run it. Despite this, small groups of artists and musicians continue to use these forgotten computers to produce audio and visual work.
