METEOR has posted an eleven-minute digest video of footage from last year's Fami-Mode 8-bit culture festival. The movie contains clips of stage performances by Sexy-Synthesizer, Bourbon Kobayashi, Kplecraft, Consumers, Craftwife+Kaseo+, smallest and Omodaka.
Tokyo's METEOR game culture shop is preparing its next annual all-night Fami-Mode Famicom party, which will take place at the Star Pine's Cafe in Kichijouji on January 28, 2012.
Chiptune artist Omodaka combines traditional Japanese and early game console music styles. In addition, a full music video for "Hietsuki Bushi" can be viewed on YouTube, created by the Tokyo artist's studio Far East Recording.
The Japan Times conducted an interview with Omodaka, a Tokyo-based chiptune artist who combines electronic music with traditional Japanese folk songs. According to the artist, "When the idea came to me to mix minyo and chiptune, I just had to do it."
