Chipocrite Is Coming to RetroGameCon 2015 (Performance and Panel)

11954834_859389980804993_619879417236732b6864_nHappy to announce that Chipocrite will be performing at RetroGameCon 2015 and will also be hosting a really cool and educational panel: “An Intro to Chip Music, a.k.a. How to Make Music with Game Boys”

Who is Chipocrite?
Well…Chipocrite is a chiptune musician who uses original Nintendo Game Boys, often accompanied by other instruments, to create complex audio masterpieces. He has performed at numerous concerts, events and conventions Blip Festival, MAGFest and this November 14th, RetroGameCon!

In his part informative, part instructional, part interactive presentation, Chipocrite will provide an overview of chip music — a style of music in which artists re-purpose and push the boundaries of old video game hardware to create new and original compositions.


You’ll learn about the style’s roots, hear it in its modern context and get started learning how to make your own chiptunes using Little Sound DJ, the ubiquitous music tracker/sequencer software for the Nintendo Game Boy. At the end of the presentation, you might even have a chance to interact with LSDJ and make your own chip remix live!

We are glad to have him join us this year, and excited for his performance during the convention!


Can’t wait until convention day to hear his music?

Check out his music now:
