Evangelion Chiptune Music by Studio Megaane

By Aaron Clark on Monday, July 11th, 2016 in Fandom, Music.

After spending some time with Andrew’s Evangelion Chiptune album the other day, I did some poking around on YouTube for some other substantial efforts to recreate Evangelion’s iconic themes with lo-fidelity sound chips.  In particular, I came across Studio Megaane, which has done an impressive volume of chiptune renditions, with a strong preferance for mecha anime.  So it […]

A Human Work, a free Evangelion concept album

By Aaron Clark on Friday, February 14th, 2014 in Audio, Fandom, Music.

I really enjoy seeing fan-produced concept and tribute music dedicated to Evangelion.  It’s interesting to see how people take a (predominantly) visual medium like animation and break it apart and reinterpret it through an aural medium like music.  In this case, we have an ambient concept album called “A Human Work” by Kyle Edwards.  Through […]

By Aaron Clark on Monday, December 16th, 2013 in AMVs, Fandom, Music, Video.

I’ve been spending some of my time lately going through and organizing my Eva files, and while I was looking through my archive of AMVs, one editor stood out that I felt like highlighting.  Justin Emerson, who went by ErMaC, has been out of the AMV circle for close to a decade.  When he retired, […]

By Aaron Clark on Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 in Audio, Fandom.

I’ve been a fan of Mega64 for a number of years now, and I’ve noticed and enjoyed that some of them are also fans of Evangelion.  Whether it’s Garrett hosting a spoilercast for Evangelion 3.33, Rocco vlogging about his Evangelion figures, or Shawn getting fed up with Evangelion and losing his shit, I always enjoy […]

Asuka, by Free Parking!

By Aaron Clark on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012 in Fandom, Music.

The more digging I do, the more Evangelion-inspired music I discover.  This time around, it’s an album called “Asuka” by Free Parking!, an alternative rock band from Pennsylvania.  They describe their influences as “Weezer, Thrice, Radiohead (just Brendan), Blur, The Fratellis, Say Anything, Vampire Weekend” and more.  I can definitely hear some influence from Weezer […]
