For those who don’t know, Marjorie has a very impressive collection of photos from chip-related events.
Get it here (throughout November).
Looking for the actual cartridge? Shareware Plus are making new ones that will be available in the phuture.
Hey, I’m coming back to Philly soon to play the 3-day 8static Festival, which is one of the biggest chip-events in USA nowadays, I think? People like Cheap Dinosaurs, Saskrotch, fearofdark, Danimal Cannon and Nullsleep are playing. Check the full line-up here.
I’ve been a member since I was a wee little lad running in the fields of glory. But I never submitted a track. Until now. So here is my first contribution to Battle of the Bits – the not enough known chip community that has outlived most of the other ones.
It’s an Amiga song, built around a short loop that my brother made back in his Amiga days. There’s no real ending to the song, because it’s supposed to loop – like all the Amiga chiptunes in the 1990′s did.
I was asked to write about Reabracadabra, made by Eduardo Kac in 1985. It’s made for videotex, an early network technology sort of like a two-way teletext that was successful pretty much only in France, with the Minitel.
It’s a fascinating (and forgotten) technology, and I’m glad Rhizome helps to bring this forth. I for one am going to keep on digging into the videotex world at t3xtm0.de if not somewhere else.
Somehow I forgot to blog about the show in Austin that I took part in for Halloween. After a successful indiegogo campaign, they raised enough money to bring me over from California and Colorado, take down the wrestling ring in a beer brewery, and throw a great party!
I have upcoming shows and talks in Philadelphia, Montreal, Waterloo, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, and New York. Will try to be a bit more informative about those..
I have a little soft reggae song (!?) on this compilation from Rhythmus Records, along with artists like Monodeer, dkstr, Firedrill and KeFF. Get it on Bandcamp.
I guess the idea for this song was to make 1990′s mainstream reggae, in some sort of chipstyle. Good idea, right?
My new album, 80864, presents 2 years of experiments with the TR-808 and C-64. It’s out on 12″ floppy style vinyl, cassette and for download. If you buy the vinyl you also get 7 bonus tracks digitally. I think at least half of the vinyls and cassettes have already been pre-ordered, so don’t be lazy! Read more about it here.
