Kung Fu Glitch in Aix en Provence

Kung Fu Glitch, a little piece of C64-noise that me and Entter did in 2007, is currently showing at Gamerz Festival #09 in Aix en Provence, France. It’s part of 44422435, which was basically an evening of audiovisual butchery in Bilbao. Sorry to everybody whose work we destroyed – you’re welcome!

I’m not sure if this was before or after glitching games was cool. Or was it never cool? Always? I keep forgetting.

Watch Biggest Hockey Now!!!

YEAH! Jacob found a video recording of when HT Gold was big in Copenhagen. It’s a C64-game that Autoboy and I destroyed and improved. He did the assembly-tinkering, I made the sounds and the world became a slightly better place.

New releases at Datastorm

I released some stuff at the Göteborgian demo-party Datastorm. As Goto80 I made Linkan (C64-song – darkish electro(nica)dub-tronica), Dubskvaller4 (wonky reggae-funk Amiga-song), Acid Burger (C64-demo, PETSCII and acid glitch) and all episodes of Bit För Bit (video). I may or may not have contributed to “the worst C64-demo ever“, SNPFCT3, Sommarfunk, Command Center and something by Christer Ganjabladh. No hits this year – strictly anti-1337!

Also, Jucke performed a DJ-set with C64-music (w/ Seratos), which includes several songs by me. Recommended! MP3 oh yeah.

HT Gold showing in Chicago

GLI.TC/h is an exhibition/conference for noise/glitch/etc, currently kicking arse in Chicago. HT Gold, a C64-game I “made” together with Glenn Again, is there along with some other enjoyable disturbances.

HT Gold @ Playlist

HT Gold is a C-64 piece made by Frantic and me, currently showing at the Playlist exhibition in Brussels. This is a short video documentation of it by Rosa Menkman. “The girl got very frustrated, afraid and almost started crying asking for her mother when the game did not work the way she thought it was supposed to.” >> The sound is not the original soundtrack, but a live-set by Tonylight.

Accidents in Celluloid and Pixel

Filmmuseum Amsterdam has a Celluloid Remix Project for which Rosa Menkman made a video with my Arp2500-music. The first one is in colour (after a while), and the second one is black and white. Two other works by her, recently released in new versions, use music that I made under the name Extraboy aswell: Radio Dada and compress process.

So coders, how do you explain this?

I made a 5 minute gabber tune in Protracker for my Amiga, but when I loaded it today it had turned into this. It freezes just after you press play, and loops the pattern-position it’s on (usually). But the song keeps changing though.

This is 3 videos edited into one (cuts at 1.08 and 1.33) but no other postproduction has been made. FYI, the speech synthesis in the beginning says Protracker Rules, and is there every time I start Protracker. Hot scripting action!

If you like this, you probably break down in happy tears from this.
