ROCHESTER CHIP: 8BIT BETTY, BURIED FOR A DAY, AND VETO WITH VISUALS BY SBTHREE
Friday, June 20, 2014 @ Lovin’ Cup
Doors @ 8:00pm
Music @ 9:00pm
8bit bEtty (Brooklyn, NY) uses bleeps, blops, and all the robots she can make to write music inspired by awkward exchanges and things left unsaid.
Buried For A Day (Gilbert, AZ) creates music from the appreciation and understanding of nostalgia, alternative, progressive, math, and hardcore rock…or any other just plain good music really.
Veto (Rochester, NY) is a dude who is gonna play some original jams but mostly gonna play touhou jams chiptune is dead.
with visuals by…
SBthree (Rochester, NY) creates looping animations using a mix of extremely simple 3-D objects and abstract pixel art and strings them together to music. A handful of glitchy video effects are added for good measure.
Rochester Chip is a monthly series of events dedicated to promoting artists and groups who use the sound chips of retro computers and video game consoles to create new original music. This exciting and often experimental form of electronic music repurposes devices such as Nintendo Gameboys and Atari 2600s as synthesizers and sequencers to create exciting new compositions in a wide array of genres.

Kinda tempted to upload an acoustic cover of either Thursday - Marches and Manuevers or Anthony Green - Drug Dealer.
I’m playing a show in Rochester, NY on 6/20.
I know, this is weird for me too. The farthest from home I’ve gone to play music is LA :S
I’m teaching your son about the universe by shining a light into his room
When I was 16 years old, I became a member of a popular online remix community, primarily doing competitions. The majority of what I understand about audio production came from that commercially competitive atmosphere. When I was 20 I uploaded a teaser of a remix. The mix was the most solid I had ever done at the time, levels perfect, and the composition was quite sound, but instead of a normal teaser, I layered a hefty number of fart samples over this 15 second clip. The primary administrator (who was a remix artist as well, and thought he was hot shit) got on my case, saying that I disgraced someone’s work, assuming I hadn’t the skills to have made what was layered underneath the choir of butt holes. I didn’t bother to tell him it was mine, instead I came up with a grand plan to piss him off.
I created a secondary account where I would pretend to be an unintelligent, cocky 13 year old, who was shit at remixing. I would give him condescending advise on how to make music, using deplorable grammar and remixes made of septic leavings to further drive home the point that a 13 year old dumbfuck kid was telling him how to make his art.
IT GETS BETTER!!!!
I would go back to my primary account and message him things like, “WOW, that punk ass kid must really get under your skin” or “He made you look like a bitch publicly, how embarrassing”. He lost his mind over countless arguments on the dumbest things with this “kid”.
I’ve only ever received one private message to my secondary profile, It read, “This has to be the greatest troll of all time.”
Lesson #1: Don’t be an ass. Looking back, he wasn’t really a bad guy, and I took things way too far. Going out of your way to upset people for personal enjoyment is absolutely wrong.
Lesson #2: Don’t tell me not to fart on my music, douche.
