The Nobuooo Kickstarter Project.

Friend of TCTD, chip and game music documentarian and news blogger extraordinaire Jeriaska is running a Kickstarter. He has a vast amount of footage reading like a who’s who of game music composers, a similar trove of footage covering indie game luminaries and most interesting for the chip community a slew of videos from Nullsleep’s Collapsed Desires Tour and he plans to hone it all down to 3 DVDs. You can check out a trailer for the Videogame Music in Context in Japan DVD or the Independent Videogame Music in Context DVD but click on this little video and watch a few worlds get destroyed.

Some words on the tour DVD from Jeriaska

Nullsleep Collapsed Desires Tour DVD: live performances (not interviews) from the 2010 Collapsed Desires Tour, featuring chip music artists Nullsleep, Trash80, Starpause, Crashfaster, Mr. Spastic, and omake bonus material from the 2010 Tokyo Blip Festival. This one contains some swear words, so be prepared for it.

The Kickstarter is mere inches away from its goal, feel free to help out.

I hear rumors there are more great things to come….
