Focusing primarily on software-based composition, minusbaby uses lo-fi electronic synthesis to create chip music that defies genre classification. One song could be a micromusic lullaby inspired by 17th Century Spanish architecture, while the next may be reggaetón for a cymbal-clapping robotic monkey, composed with an ear for fine hip-hop beats and debuted for an Australian Cattle Dog in São Paulo, Brazil. With minusbaby, ’60s—’70s Brazilian pop can meet mid-’80s New York b-boy jams cut with Santería percussive patterns, everything filtered through the ears and fingers of a musician looking to push what chip music can display stylistically, and what people will experience when they hear it themselves.

BLIP FESTIVAL: REFORMAT THE PLANET is a feature length documentary which delves into the movement known as chip tunes, a vibrant underground scene based around creating new, original music using old video game hardware. Familiar devices such as the Nintendo Game Boy and Nintendo Entertainment System are pushed in new directions with startling results.

Using New York as a microcosm for a larger global movement, “…Reformat the Planet” maps out the genesis of the first annual Blip Festival, a four day celebration of over 30 international artists exploring the untapped potential of low-bit video game consoles. With floor-stomping rhythms and fist-waving melodies, trailblazers of the chip tune idiom descend upon Manhattan to pen a new chapter in the history of electronic music.Vodpod videos no longer available.
