Everything Must Change (For You), So That Everything Stays the Same (For Us) is a return to the RPM Challenge in 2011 (The RPM Challenge is a public dare to create a recorded album using the time only in the month of February to conceive, compose, record, produce, and master) and is named after a paraphrase used in the blog Spike Japan (http://spikejapan.wordpress.com) to describe the country’s economic structure.

As with Release Zero, the RPM Challenge was in the same month as Battle of the Bits’ Winter Chip VI and contains mastered versions of some entries there. The blend of chiptunes and samples of varying rates with RPM’s time limit causes a rough blend of sounds and styles, beginning with the eerie and soft and gradually moving towards the tongue-in-cheek only to return again.

chunter’s second release, a follow-up to Release Zero, On a Rainy Day takes the listener from the home you can’t wait to leave to the dangerous place you can’t wait to return from, using a blend of tracker samples, virtual synths and blips, and a 12-string acoustic guitar. This was mixed and mastered in its entirety on Renoise version 2.5.
