Experimental Chiptune Performance by Tammy Duplantis

Abstract:

“I would like to perform a set of my music: one half chill keyboard music performed on vintage lo-fi Yamaha synthesizers, one half experimental chiptune with Super Game Boy visual accompaniment. For the most part, this will be a solo performance. I will also have on hand a number of Game Boys with easy-to-use instrument programs I’ve developed, and for part of my performance I would like to encourage audience members to play with me. It is my hope to bring conference-goers a sense of music-making as an expressive form of play that can be experienced by anyone.
