EUROPE IN 8 BITS (DOCUMENTARY) 2013
Turanga Films releases 'Europe in 8 Bits', a documentary about chip music which features a short clip of my experimentation with cymatics. The clip, a steady tone played through water and producing bubbles, appears near the beginning of the film.
“Europe in 8 bits” is a documentary that explores the world of chip music, a new musical trend that is growing exponentially throughout Europe. The stars of this musical movement reveal to us how to reuse old video games hardware like Nintendo’s GameBoy and the Commodore 64 to turn them into a tool capable of creating a new sound, a modern tempo and an innovative musical style. This is a new way of interpreting music performed by a great many artists who show their skills in turning these “limited” machines designed for leisure in the 80s into surprising musical instruments and graphical tools. It will leave nobody indifferent.
