About Me

Hi and welcome to Jonponsvids.com, the place where I host all of my video game music escapades, blogging and a bit of pixel art on the side!

I'm a 26 year old Web Developer by trade but I'm also passionate about video game music, particularly 8-bit/chiptunes. I like to create both original tracks and covers of other great tunes, using software like Famitracker, SunVox and MilkyTracker.

Here, I'll be posting all of my video game music, writing blog posts about my favourite video game music and composers and including a gallery of all of the pixel art I've created!
