Nullpointer plays Gameboy! ... oh yes!
Nullpointer [Tom Betts] will perform several peices
written on Nintendo Gameboy hardware. All tracks are composed
and performed using Nanoloop, a realtime synthesis sequencer for
the Gameboy. Nanoloop provides the user with a number of abstract/minimal
wave shaping algorithmns and a hexadecimal sequencer.
The music produced is reminiscent of the 8bit
era but is performed with two networked cutting edge handheld
games machines. As with the majority of Tom's performances he
will be collaborating with Jonny Pilcher, his musical partner
in the band Weevil and co-composer for various experimental
music projects. 4bit wavetable funk!!!!!!
AvSeq is an abstract sound sequencing game. The player captures
and links sound objects together; various combinations, when released
activate changes in the audio sequence of the game. In turn the
game environment responds visually to the developing audio track.
The player can therefore manipulate the progress of the game both
aurally and visually. High scores and complex patterns are rewarded
with access to more game levels and objects.
AvSeq will be located in the reception area of The Media
Centre for the duration of the festival.
