Blip Festival

is being held from November 30th-December 3rd. We’ll let them explain.

        “THE TANK and 8BITPEOPLES are pleased to present the Blip Festival, a four-day celebration of over 30 international artists exploring the untapped potential of low-bit videogame consoles and home computers used as creative tools. Familiar devices are pushed in new directions with startling results — Nintendo Entertainment Systems and Game Boys roaring with futuristic floor-stomping rhythms and fist-waving melody, art-damaged Sega hardware generating fluctuating and abstracted video patterns — and that's only the beginning. An exploration of the chiptune idiom and its close relatives, the Blip Festival is the biggest and most comprehensive event in the history of the form, and will include daily workshops, art installations, and nightly music performances boasting an international roster larger and more far-reaching than any previous event of its kind. Small sounds at large scales pushed to the limit at high volumes — the Blip Festival is an unprecedented event that is not to be missed.” -

        The list of performers must be seen to be believed. So if you are in New York DO NOT MISS IT. Also, if you are there let us know how it went (especially with plenty of footage and photos!)

MUSIC AND SITE NEWS

I wanted to point you folks to a podcast I highly recommend and is brought to us by the good folks at National Public Radio. This webcast is called Press Start and they are currently two episodes strong. In their second podcast they discuss the topic of video game music, so definitely listen in. In music, chiptune artist Lutin has recently released some new songs for download from his upcoming full length release on Chipcache, which will be dropping on October 6th.
In site news, We’ve finally got some footage up. All thanks to the great people from 2 Player Productions. They are working on a documentary currently titled Play A Video Game Music Documentary. We have some Youtube rough cuts right now but you can expect more footage and exclusive footage soon. They have their own page now in the media section, and we currently have three pieces of theirs up. Enjoy!
