I/O Chip Music
Friday July 6 2012
Hailing from Connecticut, USA, Misfitchris started off playing his Casio keyboard alongside SNES games in a valiant effort to mimic his favorite video game composers. Then, in an attempt at venting his inevitable teenage angst, he picked up a guitar and started a punk band. At 21 the budding electronic prodigy discovered chipmusic, a marriage of difficult trackers and minimal soundscapes, a match made in heaven. Misfitchris is everything you ever wanted to hear and everything your parents warned you about.
andaruGO is a chipmusician based in Cincinnati, Ohio. He uses a single gameboy (sometimes two) and a tracking program called “LSDJ”. Using the Game Boy as a deliberate aesthetic choice, andaruGO strives to prove the point that less is indeed more. Music is not a competition, and should be about expressing your own sensibilities. Be yourself, love your enemies, and hug your friends.
craphazzard writes music in both modern DAW’s and for micro-platforms such as the Nintendo GameBoy. He is currently focused on producing the best music possible with a single DMG running LSDJ.
Chromacle is a digital art and music project created by Jake Beadenkopf to explore the vast plane of the digital aesthetic, creating vast computerized video and audio experiences that dance the border between logical data constructs and ocular corruption. Working under the mantra “Beauty from corruption, destruction from chrominance,” Chromacle’s work deconstructs the digital to its barest form. The product is a glitch-influenced barrage of visual and audiological stimuli that tantalize and torture physiological receptors.
