Chiptune block: Nikola Whallon, Petriform, chibi-tech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ending the Friday night main stage music block are three chiptune acts: Nikola Whallon, Petriform, and chibi-tech!

-Nikola Whallon is a multi-instrumentalist with a passion for old technology. Pairing wild live instrumentals with multi-genre chiptune coming from his Nintendo Gameboys and zany stage antics, Nikola provides a unique twist on the live chiptune experience.

-From San Jose, CA, Petriform has brought energetic NES-style chiptunes and synth music to the California chipmusic scene for years. Drawing unapologetically from a grab-bag bursting at the seams with genre influences including bubblegum pop, 80s-90s VGM, third wave ska, prog metal, happy hardcore, and turn-of-the-millennium pop punk, no two Petriform releases are the same -- and neither are the live shows, for that matter!

-chibi-tech is an American music composer and sound designer living in Japan & working in gamedev. A prominent specialist within the Japanese game industry especially for her chiptune craft, she's contributed various works for companies such as Capcom, Cave, Marvelous, Sega, SNK, 5pb., amongst others. But with great power comes great responsibility... with the potential of that power to be greatly abused. On stage, she loves to cause havoc with her chiptune arsenal of NES consoles... each packed with megatons of audible heat to ignite the dancefloor.
