8 BIT in Australia


8 BIT made it around the world all the way to Australia! Last Thursday, April 24th we premiered at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne. It was well worth the 24 hour trip: 8 BIT sold out and ACMI turned out to be an excellent venue, up there with the NYC MoMa and Montreal S.A.T. The screening was a part of "Game On", a massive exhibition about the history of video gaming, featuring every game I have ever seen + some brand new machinima by Eddo Stern.

I was super excited to meet the few Australian chiptune people: DJ Trip opened the event with an awesome 30 minutes Commodore/Gameboy + PC set, and the after party was quite successfully rocked out by 10kfreemen and Dot.Ay.

Huge thanks go to Tim Webster (the organizer), Anna Svedberg, Helen Stuckey and the entire ACMI crew, which made my week in Melbourne truly special!

And last but not the least: my Melbourne micro-video documentary;)
