Blip Festival | New York City | Five Years
A comprehensive photographic record of chip musicians who’ve played New York City’s Blip Festival, from the first wintry event at The Tank in 2006 through the 2007 show at Eyebeam, the 2008 and 2009 shows at The Bell House in Brooklyn, and the spring 2011 return to Eyebeam. Blip Festival | New York City | Five Years represents thousands of hours of work by Chiptography in documenting the New York City chip music scene’s most important yearly event.
“This book is a testament to a thriving and impressive chip music scene, which is kept alive not only by people like Marjorie Becker but every artist pictured in these pages, and the countless others who have yet to make it to this stage. I can think of no better way to celebrate the unique chip music phenomenon, the growing legacy, and the incredible gathering that is the Blip Festival than with these photographs of its creators and contributors.”
–Nathaniel “Natty” Lee Adams, excerpt from his introduction to Blip Festival | New York City | Five Years
