[NYC] Blip Festival Celebrates Chip Music May 25-27, 2012 — Shocklee Entertainment Universe ● The Future Frequency

[NYC] Blip Festival Celebrates Chip Music May 25-27, 2012

Blip Festival makes its long-awaited return to New York City. Produced by 8bitpeoples in association with The Tank and Live Nation, the Blip Festival 2012 finds Manhattan once again at the center of the universe. From May 25-27, musicians and visualists from all corners of the globe will assemble at the Gramercy Theatre to perform music & motion graphics, produced on & inspired by early-generation home computers and gaming consoles.

The festival brings together shining examples of the global chip music underground — performers conscripting devices like the Commodore 64, the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Game Boy, and the Sega Genesis into the service of music spanning every conceivable style.

Rounding out the event’s three nights of explosive live performances will be supplementary daytime programming including workshops, how-to’s, presentations and screenings offering a glimpse into exactly how it’s all achieved, and perhaps even inspiring some 2013 Blip Festival performers-to-be.
