CNB: Spectrum • 8/4 • NYC • Chipocrite, Zen Albatross, Da Pantz, rhinostrich, NO CARRIER

Cheese N Beer is proud to present the first installment of “CNB: Spectrum”, a new series of electronic music.

CNB: Spectrum signals an expansion: the extension of space and sound for both established and emerging artists. Spectrum aims to celebrate chip music’s accomplishments by deliberately stretching its boundaries. These concerts pay homage to our community by challenging the very limits of chip music we’ve established. We’re excited to do so by actively welcoming diverse styles, platforms, and media to this series of shows: you will never fully know what to expect.

We hope you’ll join us for our debut at Brooklyn Fireproof East!

NO CARRIER (Brooklyn, NY) []

Don Miller is an artist and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. He performs live visuals in real time under the alias NO CARRIER. Miller works with nearly obsolete repurposed electronics to create high energy low resolution abstract video art. Part of the 8bitpeoples artist collective, he performs, exhibits, and lectures worldwide. In his hometown of Philadelphia Miller organizes and curates 8static, a monthly showcase of low-bit music and video. He also serves as a Director of Playpower, a non-profit organization that works to bring low-cost educational games to developing countries.


Chipocrite (Philadelphia, PA) []

Chipocrite aka Paul Weinstein (former bassist of MJ Project, Philadelphia’s favorite jamtronfusion monstergroup) started making music with Game Boys in early 2009. It was the sound he felt he was destined to create, a mix of old and new, a way to bridge the comforting video game tones he grew up with and the complex but catchy songs he was hearing in his head all those years later. He’s constantly adding new songs to his repertoire, which has been described as “upbeat and danceable.? It’s exciting, it’s neato, and, above all, it’s some of the most fun he’s ever had making music.

Zen Albatross (Brooklyn, NY) []

By day, Brooklyn journalist Joshua Kopstein worriedly studies the rapidly decaying culture of information politics, technology and creative freedom. As Zen Albatross, he processes these anxieties into cathartic expressions of audible violence, crafting colossal obelisks of hip-shaking sound using the antiquated circuitry of a Nintendo Game Boy. His fascination with chip music, its history and associated disciplines has led him to speak and perform in cities across the US, as well as publish articles on the subject for various outlets including VICE Magazine’s, Racketboy and Original Sound Version.

DaPantz (Bronx/Brooklyn, NY) []

Uptown New York’s sarcastically named DaPantz is an electronic musician based in the Bronx. Exploring large-scale issues through low-grade gear, he creates an array of heavy beats and industrial melodies rooted in distortion, design, and discourse. Adopting a critical view of disorder, DaPantz creates challenging, but ultimately thrilling pieces of autobiography that push outdated hardware to its contemporary limit.
