Photos and stuff

Friday, April 17, 2009 0
Okay first off, if you check out this link, you can see the chiptune segment that was on Good Game available for download at the other end of the link Chiptunes on Good Game. I tried uploading it here but three hours later... try the link ;)

Second off... photos!
Once the new website is ready to roll out we'll have a lot more, but here's a little taste of what you missed out on if you didn't make it to the night

Astro Zombies made his live debut at the gig. This kid is a child prodigy! His music is great now - but its scary to think just how good he'll be in a few years when he's old enough to drink in the venues he's playing!

Jim Cuomo is a legend of chiptunes, he wrote the music for Defender of the Crown for gods sake! The man was an honest to gone pioneer of 8-bit music (he's not a fan of the term 'chiptunes :) )

Second time at a Sound Bytes gig, Derris-Kharlan cleared the balcony when he started playing his amazing Zelda medley as they headed for the main room to hear the tunes (and performed despite the fact he's meant to be on crutches!)

Another new artist to the SoundBytes line up was Maddest Kings Alive, who was, just amazing. I don't think any of us could speak highly enough of him!

And last, but most definitley not least - 10K Free Men and Their Families, brought the house down with a set that is worth about a million re-listens (the audio will be up with the new site too - lots to look forward to!)

As I said, more pics soon, this is just a small taste of what's to come!

Good Game Sound Bytes

Friday, April 3, 2009 3
It may have taken a week to put an update from last weeks gig online, but I promise, we didn't forget - it's just that Telstra couldn't organise their way out of a paperbag - and it has left dpad phoneless and internetless!
Last Friday night was SoundBytes Round 3 at the Queensberry hotel. 'Our' new artists, Jim Cuomo and Maddest Kings Alive, along with Astro Zombies were fantastic and our 'older' ones, 10K Free Men and their Families and Derris Kharlan, improve every single time I see them.

As you probably know, footage from the event, along with interviews with 10K, Jim and other friends of Dpad, little-scale and dot.AY will be appearing on Good Game, this Monday night at 8:30 on ABC2, and we will also link to the vodcast from this site - personally I cannot wait to see it!

We are also planning a revamp of the website - as soon as the internet situation is sorted, and as part of that will be making the audio from the most recent gig available here, as well as photos, and even some video - so keep an eye out for it.

Next Soundbytes is being planned for July - date is almost confirmed, and will be announced once we have more details.
