What the Math? Presents a mini festival full of huge music made by small machines. Taking vintage gaming hardware and bending/beating/coding them into submission to create lo-fi, homegrown electronic music, we invite a diverse line up of UK based artists to show us exactly how much sound can pour from every chip. With genres ranging from straight retro videogame music to post-rock influenced pop, DnB, house, bass and seapunk, the chipmusic scene bubbles with a creative energy flowing off the forums, tumblrs, gif-sets, and vines onto the stage. We couldn’t be more exited!
Headlining the event we are proud to invite TDK aka Mark Knight, a veteran performer on the chipmusic/demoscene. TDK’s music gushes with melody, fizzing highs and deep bass led by live violin, providing a lively contrast to the driving electronics.
TDK is joined by Shefield’s Harleylikesmusic, Cardiff’s own Alone, xCriticalStrikex, The Virus Empire, Infotoxin, Sky Pope, King Keytan, Whitely, J3wel and CFGK24.
So grab a Game Boy, level up your dancing shoes, max your high scores and welcome to Cardiff eleven of the finest chip musicians the UK has to offer.
