Cool Hunting Video Presents: 8-Bit v5: Overview

Using the Gameboy as an instrument, we take a look at experimental musicians as they push the boundaries of 8-bit sound

In the last volume of our 8-bit series we discuss the sampling processes of artists who re-imagine the possibilities of lo-fi technology with New Media Curator, Ashley Colgate. We revisit Mike Rosenthal, Experimental Music Curator at the NYC performance space ‘The Tank.’ We also had the opportunity to speak with Montgomery Knott director of MonkeytownHQ, the innovative dining and performance space in Williamsburg. We asked them about their ideas on 8-bit music and the artistic process of manipulating limited technology as a form of expression. What follows is an overview on the future of the Chiptune sound.
