And here’s a Googlish translation of the project from Portuguese:
Lecture and performance audio and visual free Pulselooper and Roger. AVLAB pt.03 end of # 6.
Pulselooper is a project of Andrew ZP, audiovisual producer and musician who uses as a tool for creation and composition Game Boys, old computers and other technologies vintage. Andrew ZP show how the few bits of an old game can turn into a musical instrument. With Game Boys (the classic Nintendo handheld game) and 80 years of old computers, is Pulselooper
electronic music full of beats and heavier bases and distorted than is usually drawn from a hi-fi art.
His electronic music made with vintage consoles has passed, among others, places like Campus Party 2010; GameMusic Festival, conducted by the Instituto Itau Cultural in Sao Paulo, the Continuum, I Festival of Art and Technology of Recife, the Animefriends in San Paulo and Rio FILE Hipersônica 09, where he shared the stage with artists that are reference style, like Bit Shifter, Covox, Sabrepulse and some of the biggest names in
His presentation at the meeting will focus on AVLAB chiptune or Chip Music, musical style synthesized in real time by video games and old computers. Aesthetic feature of the year 80, when these devices were one of the few digital tools for composition, still used by aficionados of tones in low definition.
Time for some chip tunes and glitch I guess

Easy to get somewhat nostalgic watching this Atari project
“The “gAtari” was my excuse to do something a little silly after I discovered that the Atari 2600 was more limiting than I realized! (31 pitches, minimal waveforms and only 2 channels!) I needed an EQ which could take a high voltage and drop it down to line level (Boss bass EQ) plus a way to hold loops between tracks and parts (Boss delay). So rather than have it “DJ” style config, I thought I make something a little more creative. It uses my atari-x-mod converter software which compiles binary files for Atari. You can find a little video about it here: http://vimeo.com/23589320”
Big ups to Celsius / Trash80 / nf / Lazerbeat for the audio recording. Massive thankyou to sebastienvd81 & JDD3J for shooting additional video footage. Thanks to Wing / Celsius / Abrasive for their assistance and filming. Mega-thanks to Paul Slocum for the maco asm code for 2600 that I based my software around interfacing with

Interesting concept, here´s what Prime says about the album:
Prime began as a concept that would challenge me to write more songs in odd time signatures. The idea to write a series of songs in prime number time signatures ultimately became Prime parts I through IV. Part I in 3/4 time, Part II in 5/4 time, Part III in 7/4 time, and Part IV in 11/4 time with a medley to bring it all together for the finish.
Of course, it couldn’t stop there… Orange patterns on the cover artwork (designed by Party Time! Hexcellent!) appear only on the prime repetitions, and tempos within the montage have only prime beats per minute.
This was an ambitious project and I’m really happy with the end result! As an added incentive, I have recorded and remastered some tunes that were previously exclusive to various compilations I contributed to and released them together for the first time. This includes Rebound, Sixty Second Shakes, Niner and Frostbitten Dub. Closing out the record is another brand new song titled Fist.bmp that ends it all on a fun note.
Download it or buy the CD and let me know what you think!
