Hello! This site is designed for desktop, but you can still check it out on mobile, there's just fewer things to do. I'm also going to insert a little bit here about my name being Blake 'PROTODOME' Troise. Why, you ask? Well, it used to be that, when you Googled 'Blake Troise', this website popped up as the first result. Now it doesn't even rank. Well Google, you have met your match! Meet the SEO king, Blake Troise.

Hey! Interested In A Pocket Hardware Album Synthesiser?

I'm planning on doing some more cool, unconventional album releases. If you'd like one, or want me to keep you posted, please drop your email in the form below.





A piece I wrote for Attiny45 and piano, performed by the *insanely good* Yshani Perinpanayagam. A very tiny video.

ICON 1 Hello!

Hey, I'm Dr. Blake Troise, aka PROTODOME. I'm a musician, award winning researcher ;D ;D and cool tech/academic guy for ThinkSpace Education from the south coast, UK. You're probably here because you know me for writing jazz chipmusic, but I also mess about with graphics, software and electronics.

If you'd like to get in contact, you should definitely email me at hello((at))protodome((dot))com. I'd love to hear from you; it's always nice getting mail.

I've got a bunch of chipmusic / chipfusion jazz albums over on Bandcamp and on Spotify, Google Play and Amazon Music. You'll notice I use the same bass sound a lot. Some might accuse me of stagnating sonically, or perhaps even creatively. I tell myself that it's my USP.

I wrote a paper on 1-bit music theory and composition for the Journal of Sound and Music in Games, published by the University of California Press! You can check it out online by clicking here.


My PhD is now online! If you're interested in seeing what I've been working on for the last few years (along with some really weird music), click here.
