The DVD will be available for purchase at this year's Blip Festival  and online following the conclusion of the event.

Live performance video compilation featuring one track from each of the 32 performers at the second annual Blip Festival, held in New York NY in 2007, and curated and organized by 8bitpeoples and The Tank.

The Blip Festival showcases artists adopting and repurposing familiar but forgotten hardware - such as the Commodore 64, the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Atari game console and home computer line, and the Nintendo Game Boy - exploring their untapped potential and unique aesthetic character as musical instruments and motion graphics workstations.

In addition to the 32 videos, this collection features a bonus disc packed with interviews, music videos, photos, and more.

OPEN CALL FOR PERSONAL BLIP DOCUMENTARIES . . .

Over the past two years, 2 Player Productions has served as the official videography crew for the Blip Festival. Each year, they release a comprehensive DVD package featuring one song from each of the festival's 32 musical performances as well as bonus materials related to New York's chip music scene.

In the interest of broadening the scope of their coverage of Blip '08 as a whole, 2PP is putting out an open call to audience members for footage documenting their personal experience of this year's festival. Film yourself getting ready for the show, traveling to New York, hanging out in the city, meeting other fans, freaking out during your favorite performances, going out afterwards, etc. The more you shoot, the better.

Pictures are also welcome and highly encouraged. The final product will be edited into a short documentary for the official Blip Festival 2008 DVD.

To confirm your participation and receive details (or ask questions) please email

Thanks for taking an interest. We look forward to seeing the festival through your eyes this year.
