Again, you are cool to take them. I identified all the names I could. Sorry I couldn't be 100 percent accurate.

Peter,

i submitted mine tonight.  here is the content i included if you were curious (hopefully i didn't miss anything):

the full weekend playlist on youtube:

i came to blip with the goal to provide a full and honest account of what it was like to experience it in person via video recording.  nearly the entire event was recorded with over 11 hours of actual show content.  all songs and sets are intact and in sequence, well-organized into playlists and can be watched with full continuity.  i wanted to be aggressive in getting the material all online before it was stale and therefore all content was available on the channel a couple days after blip ended.

i recorded everything myself from the front of the stage with no special press privileges or crew with a simple camera.  there are times when i get knocked down, kicked in the face, pushed, crushed, etc.  it is all documented as part of the experience.  apologies for the quality of filming at these moments, but it is truly what the experience would have been like in person as-well.

it was amazing to attend blip this year and also to accomplish something which has never been done before by documenting the full event.  this material is an epic addition to my chronicle project and i continue to add content on a very regular basis.  as the archive continues to grow, it will provide an excellent resource for people to discover new music and also for the artists to showcase their work to others.


about my project:

i began documenting chip performances about nine months prior, mostly in the philadelphia area.  at the end of february i launched the chip music chronicle with the purpose to provide a full account of what was happening in the scene. 

the performances are all well-organized into sets and complete events.  you can watch an entire 8static show as if you were actually there in the audience in one playlist.

most of what was available on video were only 1 min clips with no context or style to them.  my vision was to change that with the following goals:

- provide everyone with an equal voice, all performers get full recordings no matter how big or small they are (including open mics), this takes away the gate-keeper and provides an open door for everyone to discover for themselves who they like.

- film the complete performance with continuity intact and from a perspective that provides a feel for the ambiance of the show.  also to ensure the visualist's work was intact (which i feel is integral to the performance)

- shoot guerilla-style with the goal to provide an honest account of what it is like to be there in person - no multi-cam, no montage, editing, crane, etc. *it is not reality*

- keep it simple, use what i got.  i use an iphone 4 and no editing software or gear.  i rely completely on my own abilities and judgement to get the best shots, there are no second chances.

- bring people the truth.  when people type "chip music" into youtube, it will no longer be just novelty tunes that pop up or the top acts in the country,  they will see a robust community of talented artists and performers from all over the world, documented on video looking & sounding their best.

i've put much love & care into trying to do this in the best way possible.

the chronicle was launched on 2/27/11

i'd like to thank the people that encouraged me to invest in this project and reassured me that i wasn't crazy or wasting my time in the beginning:
carlson stevens, paul weinstein, aleister williams, joey mariano, chris burke, jessen jurado, christian montoya, josh davis, brendan becker, ricardo almonte, shawn phase and the entire 8static crew!!  and big love to everyone else who recently has shown support!
