Who Knew These Blips Could Be So Beautiful

There are plenty of musical genres out there, but none of them so in sync with geek culture as that of chip music. The genre, known for its low-bit sound with roots in the early home computer and gaming scenes, has developed a tight knit scene of artists and fans that span the globe. The idea of creating something beautifully complex out of a set of limitations drives these artists to craft innovative works that inspire their peers. While the internet allows for these artists to communicate and share their creations freely, they’ve been known to congregate on occasion. One such meeting will be taking place next month at the annual New York Blip Festival on May 19th through 21st. The three day event will feature live performances from a number of scene artists, showcasing some of the best talent the scene has to offer. For more information on how to attend, including the complete list of acts set to perform, check out the official website for more information.
