Philadelphia Chip Music

8static, Philly’s premier 8-bit/chiptune audio/visual party, is back at a new venue and ALL AGES again! We have a killer lineup for this benefit show to raise money to improve our events and raise festival awareness. In the tradition of 8statics past, we will kick things off with an informative workshop by Ap0c on composing with famitracker at 7pm, followed by open mic at 8pm (five minutes/one song max.), and dive right into the show at 9pm. Don’t miss it!

Danimal Cannon (Buffalo, NY)
Guitarist, chiptuner, producer, engineer, MUSICIAN. You might know this Buffalo, NY, native from work with Armcannon, Metroid Metal, or Weaponex or his numerous PAX and MAGfest appearances, his acclaimed 2011 album “Roots,” or “Parallel Processing,” his collaboration with Zef. But until you catch his impossible grooves and clever hooks, unmistakable guitar solos and intricate LSDJ arrangements live, you don’t know Danimal Cannon.

TREY FREY (PHL)
Originating from West Virginia, USA, and recently relocated to Philadelphia, Trey Frey creates music using two synced 1989 gameboys. His 2014 album ‘Refresh’ quickly cemented him at the forefront of the chip music scene with its soaring, catchy melodies – intricate sound design and a respect and understanding for dance music.

Solarbear (PHL)
Another recent Philadelphia transplant moving in all the way from Lexington, Kentucky. Solarbear makes progressive metal chiptunes with a bit of that good feelin’ thrown in. If you’re ready to dance… step aside and let the moshers in.

Sbthree (Buffalo, NY)
Using a mix of extremely simple 3-D objects and abstract pixel art, Steven Boyar creates looping animations and strings them together to music. A handful of glitchy video effects are added for good measure.
