Blip Festival Tokyo 2012
10月20-21日 · OCTOBER 20-21 @KOENJI HIGH
Based in New York City, Bit Shifter explores high-energy, low-resolution music produced using the primitive synthesis of repurposed electronics as a deliberate aesthetic choice. In a distillation of the less-is-more philosophy, Bit Shifter operates with a standard Nintendo Game Boy to produce hard-hitting, high-impact music that seeks to explore the aesthetics of economy and to push minimal hardware to its maximum.
Bit Shifter is the co-administrator of the 8bitpeoples label, co-curator and co-organizer of the international Blip Festival event series, has released music on Astralwerks, Hymen, Mirex, and 555 Recordings, and has performed over 150 shows worldwide.
