    Hi everyone! My name is John Hoffman, and I'm a chiptune composer from Canada. My specialty lies in working with tracker programs such as LSDj and Famitracker to compose songs that sound like they came from games on the Gameboy or NES. I use my extensive musical theoretical knowledge and emotions to make unique, catchy music that invites audiences to listen over and over.

    In Progress
    • SUPER RETRO MAKER is a game where you design stages based on the styles of your favorite NES platformers and share them with your friends. It's a an 8-bit smorgasbord of epic proportions that is sure to entertain retro aficionados in 2018 and beyond. Listen to the preview of the OST here!
    Completed Portfolio
    • "THE LIFE AND TIMES OF WHISKERS MAHONE" is a full-length chiptune album that musically summarizes the life of a beloved pet that I had to put to rest in May of 2016. In this album, you'll hear prog rock, jazz and cinematic influences that seamlessly combine to paint a unique sonic experience you will not find anywhere else.
      "BOUNDARYMEN VOLUME 1" is part one of a duology that's essentially a love-letter to the retro games of my childhood. Or at least, it started out that way before I felt it needed to also stand apart from the games that influenced its composition (Mega Man, Castlevania etc). By combining my progressive rock tendencies with jazzy chord progressions, I feel I've achieved that.[
      "FLIGHT OF SHIRODEYARU" is a sprawling, epic single that ties into Boundarymen.
    Musical sketchbook
    • SOUNDCLOUD: This is where I post all of my composition sketches. From time to time I might even post things that are WIPs.

    Reviews (as of February 1, 2017)
    "The Life and Times of Whiskers Mahone is a great album, with a strong love for progressive rock throughout the ages. I definitely urge you to listen along and if you’re a fan of progressive music like Danimal Cannon, Virt, or Fearofdark I highly recommend this release." -- Tuberz Mcgee, https://chiptuneswin.com/blog/fives...e-life-and-times-of-whiskers-mahone-by-hoffy/
    "‘Boundarymen Vol. 1’ is a remarkable debut album [...] if you're in need of an experience from a new face in the scene, I would strongly recommend checking out HOFFMAN's Bandcamp, as this young man can only continue to impress going forward" -- Bronx Kuma, http://chiptuneswin.com/blog/kumas-quick-shots-round-13/#more-15789

    Why should we work together?
    As your game's composer, the atmosphere and narrative you are trying to convey is my number-one priority -- and I communicate extensively with my clients to get a very deep sense of what the game's soundtrack requires. My second priority is making your game have the very best soundtrack that it can have, given your budget. Music is currently my full-time focus, so you'll get nothing less than my undivided attention until your soundtrack is complete.

    Pricing
    My pricing varies based on the value of the project and your budget. Please contact me for more details!
