PULSEWAVE: WILD IN THE STREETS EDITION

Three of the most bad ass dudes involved in the chip community will finally be gathering in New York City for something other than being a Blip Festival attendee. With two acts from North America and one taking a long bus ride out from Canada, this is sure to be a wild night. Bring your leather jackets, spike up your hair, and get ready for this punk as fuck trio to party it up like you've never seen before. Bring your gear for open mic! 5 minutes, plug in and play; no exceptions! Sign up list at the door, limited amount of spots.

Music by:

MisfitChris »> Hailing from Connecticut, USA, Misfitchris started off playing his Casio keyboard alongside SNES games in a valiant effort to mimic his favorite video game composers. Then, in an attempt at venting his inevitable teenage angst, he picked up a guitar and started a punk band. He got his first taste of using computers to make music editing local bands with basic sound editing software. That eventually lead to the wunderkind toying around with digital audio workstations trying to emulate his favorite artists such as Daft Punk, Sebastien Leger, Aphex Twin, Square Pusher and Autechre. Then at 21 the budding electronic prodigy discovered chipmusic, a marriage of difficult trackers and minimal soundscapes, a match made in heaven. Misfitchris quickly grew fond of this sound and in an unyielding attempt at perfection began his current project he has aptly dubbed “Fakebit”. His sound is a distinctive blend of the classic chip music he was weaned on and the heavy hitting house music that captivated him as a teen. MisfitChris has a sound that will conjure up feelings from days of old, like leaving final fantasy 3 on just to hear the music and the feeling of being the only one in the world to defeat the boss all rolled into a precise, masterfully crafted sonic eargasm. Misfitchris is everything you ever wanted to hear and everything your parents warned you about. http://misfitchris.bandcamp.com/

L-Tron »> Upon discovering what the program was capable of, the scientists took immediate precautions, securing it inside of the nearest electronic device they could find: a Nintendo Game Boy. They feared its power yet could not bring themselves to destroy it. Trapped Inside the machine with no way to escape and return to its own time, the program began expressing itself through the sound chip of the Game Boy. Eons passed. An exploration vessel near a planet called Earth recorded the following transmissions – Code-named: L-tron. http://www.myspace.com/ltronsmusic

Battle Lava »> Battle Lava is a solo chip music project from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, using the Nintendo Game Boy as a source of sound and inspiration. His music covers a range of styles that hover on the boundary of retro-technological limits. http://battlelava.com/

Visuals by:

InvaderBacca »> Invaderbacca sees the colors that nobody sees. His approach to visualizing the sounds surrounding him is almost sonic itself in nature, whether he's creating hardware NES mods or creating his own spasmodic video blasts. It all becomes a blend that is both delicious and stimulating. http://vimeo.com/album/247560
