The International Chiptune Resistance Tour
In Japan currently, the International Chiptune Resistance Tour touches down stateside next week, bringing "lo-bit tactical specialists" Bit Shifter and Nullsleep to North America. The Nintendo-based music makers are rising fast and each stop on their tour features different visual and audio artists who are also worth checking out. San Franciscans get to experience a line-up that includes x|k using his Midines (hardware that enables MIDI control of the Nintendo) to create sights and sounds, Flight404's live rendered images for Bit Shifter's set, and Cameron Soren's digital collages. It all happens at San Francisco's latest arts and culture apex, Toothless Chandelier at Mighty, next Thursday, 1 June 2006 from 6-9pm.
