FWIW, this stuff falls into the "meh" category for me usually, but I gave it a listen and must admit that as it goes on it really is pretty damn amazing that this came from a game on a 8 bit computer.

Would it have to do with careful timing to produce harmonic and non-harmonic overtone structures? That could sound like a 4th voice when there are actually 3.

Errrr. Maybe?

I think I read somewhere that there was a bug in the SID chip that gave an audible click when you changed the volume. They then manipulated this to essentially play a sample. 

It's the bottom line on the scope - sounds like an 80s sample @ that! geeetar...

Whodathunk tetris' music was such a ground breaker?
