GreyScreen Artist Residency
I’ve been keeping this news largely under wraps for the last while, but now that the big day is nearing, I’d like to tell everyone about it. If you click on the picture above, you’ll be able to get a little more infor on the project. I’ll be doing a series of rom-hacks for the NES as visual pieces. Think of it as a change to expand upon the visual component to the musical component that is GreyScreen
I just wanted to use this space to as to keep everyone appraised as to my progress and struggles with the project. As i learn assembly, burn my fingers on soldering irons and project massive pixelated landscapes across the wall - I want you to be appraised to it all and illuminate some aspect to video game modification.
Definitely use this space as a forum to talk to me about it. Any questions, or feedback, I’d love to hear it. Send it my way. Huge thanks to the Ledge Gallery and the Epcor Centre. Game on.
Show at Tubby Dog with new Chip-pals
Great big show in Edmonton with a handful of other chip-dudes. Don’t miss.
I’m playing this Friday @ The Slice. If you’re down in S. Alberta, be sure to come out.
The good people at Bug Incision hooked up this show. Haven’t played a GreyScreen show in some time, been so busy with bands, so it’s going to be bumpin’, fresh tracks and all.
Update - Aug 2012
First off, Sled Island went amazingly. The workshop was attended by a huge cross-section of nerds of all ages, so it was awesome to see so many people stoked on making and learning chiptune. The guys from Calgary is Awesome make some mention of it here.
I’ll also be playing a show at Olympic Plaza on Aug 11. Playing with some more unheralded bands in the city, so it should be a blast. See you soon!
Thrillogy digital release on Noise Channel.
The wonderful chip community website and netlabel Noise Channel has just rereleased Thrillogy digitally. You can roll over there and download/stream the whole thing. Please check out some of the other amazing chip stuff over there and support this place.
GreyScreen`s LSDJ Workshop & Sled Island shows
Yes, it’s true. I’ll be doing another LSDJ workshop! If you want to learn how I do what I do, come on out. This pretty much aimed at beginners, so please do not think there’s no way you can do it. LSDJ does have a steep learning curve, but that’s why I’m here to get you over it. Just bring a Gameboy and $25 and we’ll get you blasting chiptune in no time.
There’s 25 carts/slots, so if you’re coming a ways out for this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and make sure you’ve got a spot saved. Facebook here.
This is happening on Saturday, June 23 at Noon - held at the National Music Center (formerly Cantos) for the Sled Island festival. Sponsored by Weird Canada. There’s talk of a livestream video of the event as well, so stay tuned for more on that.
I’ll also be playing live TWICE during the festival, Broken City on the Thursday and Undermountain on Saturday evening. Grab a festival guide from and check out my mug in the newest Beatroute.
