Reminder: Workshop and Performance Tomorrow Night @ Format Festival@

Just a quick reminder about the workshop and performance tomorrow night as part of Format Festival. Supported by Helpmann Academy.


Sebastian Tomczak presents "Bent But Not Broken: Lo-fi Hacking for Everyday People" as part of the 2010 Format Festival in Adelaide, South Australia.

Car-boot treasures and back-of-the-cupboard discoveries finally put to use: exploring obsolete video games and circuit-bent toys for art-making. Participants will pull apart and repurpose noisy children's toys as manic music machines and discover the possibilities of chipmusic with an introductory course of composition for Game Boy.

This event is supported by the Helpmann Academy.

Date: 11 March, 2010 - 6pm to 8pm
Venue: The McKeague Space, 15 Peel Street, Adelaide
Ages: All ages
Cost: $10 (you get to keep any circuit bent toys!)
Experience Needed: None
What to bring: Nothing. Laptops would be helpful but not necessary.


==========================

little-scale Live as part of the 2010 Format Festival in Adelaide, South Australia.

Fresh from playing the internationally-renowned Blip Festival in New York City, Adelaide-based musician little-scale (Sebastian Tomczak) invites you sit back and enjoy a live DJ set, complete with obsolete video game consoles, from the SEGA Mega Drive to the Atari 2600. With home-brew hardware and chipmusic tunes, this is a night of experimental electronica and 8bit beats.

Date: 11 March, 2010 - 9pm
Venue: The McKeague Space, 15 Peel Street, Adelaide
Cost: Free!
