We are super excited about our funding campaign for Square Sounds Melbourne 2014. We look set to hit our target of $5,000 within only a few days! That doesn't mean you shouldn't contribute as we are also looking at it as a ticket sales vehicle - which means cheaper tickets for you. Check out the post below for details

SoundBytes 14 Post PAX Party

Saturday, June 29, 2013 0
The team at SoundBytes is very excited to not only be presenting a panel at PAX Australia on chiptunes, but also presenting the chip showcase on Friday night and we knew we wanted to put on a chip show around PAX time, but wanted to make sure we didn't mix a minute of the PAX experience.

Given that our good friends at Evelyn Hotel are also presenting some of the other PAX musical guests in the week post-PAX, we thought it was a great opportunity to get back to one of our favourite Melbourne venues, with a full and amazing line up of some familiar faces, as well as some amazing up and coming chip artists

SoundBytes @ PAX

Friday, June 14, 2013 0
You may have seen on the PAX site that we are very excited to be not only be part of the panels at this year’s PAX Australia, presenting a panel on chipmusic with dot.AY, cTrix, Derris-Kharlan and ‘Team SoundBytes’ but they have just announced that we will also presenting those artists on the Friday night, live and loud on the music stage!

For those PAX fans who don’t know who we are, and have come via the PAX site, SoundBytes is Australia’s longest running live chipmusic – almost 5 years of Australia and the world’s greatest chip artists. As well as our smaller SoundBytes shows which take places a few times a year, we are also responsible for the Australian version of the now defunct Blip Festival, and the Australian stop of Square Sounds Festival.

We’re a little bit of your one stop shop for Australian chip shows. If PAX whets your appetite for more chipmusic, watch this space as we will be presenting a SoundBytes at the Evelyn (who also have the Protomen and MC Frontalot playing during the week) the Friday night after PAX and we’d love to see you there.

You can also follow us on facebook or twitter – links to the right of this post!

PS – Our good friends 7bit Hero are also playing at PAX, don’t miss them, they’re AMAZING!

2013 is shaping up to be a year for some very exciting partnerships and special events and the first one that we'd like to announce (post Square Sounds anyway!) is that we are partnering up with Couch Warriors to help provide some musical relief for Battle Area Melbourne in just 4 short weeks!

Battle Arena Melbourne will bring together some of the states top competitive videogamers to battle it out for the honour of being the best and our good friend Pselodux will not only be kicking the weekend off, but also playing between rounds during the finals!
This should be a fun event for any gamers out there, so make sure you check out their links below for more details.
