Genki Rockets Take Aim at iTunes

Genki Rockets II

I don’t often get a chance to write about music, but I thought it might be cool to mention that Genki Rockets has finally released their latest album Genki Rockets II ~ No Border Between Us via iTunes here in the US. The group is marketed as sort of a hybrid-band with multiple artists contributing musical tracks to the project, all of which are voiced by a fictional idol named Lumi. Not much is known about the actual work that goes into crafting each album, however two producers are known to be attached to it, namely Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Kenji Tamai. As some of you may already know, Mizuguchi is heavily involved with creating rhythm-based games like Lumines and  the recently released Children of Eden with both games featuring music by the band. I have yet to really sit down and listen to the new album, but I’m sure I’ll love every minute of it. If you’d like to hear some of their previous work, you should definitely check out the video for Heavenly Star — it’s rather stunning.

Ever since I saw Lady Gaga’s “horns” — an addition she made for the release of her single “Born This Way” — I’ve thought that she would make for a pretty good character in X-Men. The question is just whether she’d be on Xavier’s side, or Magneto’s.

One X-Men fan has a theory… Read more…

Who Knew These Blips Could Be So Beautiful

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 21, 2011 in Tech, Videogames

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. Read more…
