Nerd Music Meltdown #49: Aethernaut

Chiptune violinist Aethernaut got Kent’s attention big time at this year’s Super MAGFest, and now Aethernaut is on the Nerd Music Meltdown! (Spotify | Apple Music | Google Play)

We talk about playing violin since the age of five(!), making his MAGFest main stage debut this year, how he fell in love with chiptune, how his custom electric violin came to be, the Denver chiptune scene, Sega Master System, and studying Computer Science online while we stay at home.
