Blip Festival 2006: The Videos Teaser Trailer

Our friends in 2 Player Productions have released a trailer for their latest DVD entitled Blip Festival 2006: The Videos. The DVD was released on November 29th, this year, at Blipfest 2007, with online purchasing coming soon. Check out the press release and trailer below.

In December of 2006, Manhattan art space The Tank and New York artist collective 8bitpeoples gave birth to 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 musical tools.

2 Player Productions is proud to present "Blip Festival 2006: The Videos," a comprehensive collection featuring one video for each of the festival's 32 performances. The DVD also features a commemorative poster, a number of photo galleries, and bonus videos of moments from the New York chiptune scene that have since passed into legend.

UPDATES

So there’s a small amount of updates today. If you haven’t noticed, the band list has been getting slowly updated thanks to bands submitting themselves to the site. Also VG cover band Nintendoom have some new tracks up for download on their site after they are premiered on Spread Radio Live at 10 PM PST. One last thing, we have a new myspace page up, so if you’re on myspace feel free to add us! That’s it for now.

NEWS / DONATIONS

First and foremost. Yes, the myspace page is no longer up. Apparently it was erased one day when i had gotten home. I’m going to have to start working out of my personal myspace profile... which I loathe to do, but so such things go. Good news too, we’ve got some new tour dates up. A new interview with Entertainment System as well.
I figure it’s high time I explained the “donate” button over on the left. Well so far everything has come out of our own pockets to get this site up and running. We aren’t exactly made of money either. So any donations, no matter how small, are very appreciated, to cover the cost of servers, domain name, etc. As we grow and we start getting a healthy cash flow from this site, we plan on being able to give out gifts based on donation sizes, giveaways and things of that nature. We’ve put a lot of effort into this site so far. and plan on giving it even more of our time over the summer months. Please, spread the word.
