Episode 36 – Blip Festival 2012


Blip Festival is often considered three nights of the world’s best chip music. For the artists, visualists, vendors, and die hard fans it’s more of a chip summer camp, with everyone who was once shrouded by the veil of the internet appears in person. With everyone gathered together it becomes a homecoming, a way for people to connect with others in a way that wasn’t possible in every day life. This is the chip scene; for this Blip I talk with the chip/bent trio Burnkit 2600, Atari/Commodore/Game Boy virtuoso cTrix and master of visualizations, Batsly Adams, on topics from artist specialties and their favorite hardware and software to the nuts and bolts of how they work and their opinion on the scene today. I want to thank all of them for breaking away from the schedule of the festival to sit down and talk with me.

Episode 10 (New York, part 1) – Blip Festival 2011

AJBS’ trip to NYC resulted in several fantastic interviews both inside and outside the chip music community. In part one of our New York series, we sit down with Blip Festival 2011 organizers Mike Rosenthal, Jeremiah “Nullsleep” Johnson, Josh “Bitshifter” Davis and Anamanaguchi frontman Peter Berkman to discuss, among other things, Blip Festival 2011, the non-profit venue The Tank, seminal chip label 8bitpeoples, and the state of chip music in America, and what its future may hold. Anthony Carboni of indie game news show Bytejacker fame also stops by to record what we imagine to be an award-winning bit of post-roll.

The music featured in this episode are performances recorded live from Blip Festival 2011 by 4mat, Bitshifter, Nullsleep, and Anamanaguchi.
