Low Bit Playground 12.0 – Tokyo, April 18th – pt2

This is the second and final part of our coverage of Lo-Bit playground 12.0. Part 1 can be found here.

20:00 – Tanikugu


LBPG is incredibly well organized, all acts have their equipment laid out and ready to go before the doors open. Tanikugu’s rig was by far the most interesting. They had no less than 4 Midines carts plugged into 4 AV Famicoms with 4 bridge adapters hooked up to 2 laptops. Unfortunately they had difficulties with one of the Midines units from the outset.

New Quarta330 Live Set

Quarta330 has a new live setup up on Chipflip writes:

Quarta330 is a Japanese gameboy composer, who sticks out with his quirky and slow beats in hiphop/dub/step style (as mentioned earlier). He’s also one of the few chip artists that operates outside the “scene” – with appearances on Hyperdub and even Warp. So his music is not always easy to find free for download, which makes this live-set from Berlin even more interesting. It includes several songs that are new to me, and I like the development from melancholic melodies and quantised grooves towards a more skweee-ish playfulness. Maybe chip music has a future after all?!
