Rhythm Core Alpha 2 events!

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

We are constantly doing events to show everybody the wonder of making your own music with Rhythm Core Alpha 2, and we have a bunch coming up!

We just finished the Inland Empire Mini Maker Faire last weekend… we totally forgot to announce that one here, but there were plenty of folks despite the 102°F temperatures! We showed lots of people how to make their own music with Rhythm Core Alpha 2, explained what you would do if you were a music synthesizer, and even actually sang a song just to show them how it is done!

There were probably lots of awesome other exhibits there, but we were trapped in our booth the whole time, so we couldn’t tell you about them… shoutouts to the folks at “Chiptune in Riverside” who were there in force, and Tom from “Riverside Robotics Society”, who brought us a cup of ice! Much appreciated, Tom! Thanks to all the folks at IEMMF for inviting us and making it all possible… and who was that girl with the blue hair?

This Saturday, October 11th 2014 we will be at the Riverside Robotics Society’s Robot Expo at the Woodcrest Library in Riverside, doing much the same thing, alongside the folks from “Chiptune in Riverside ” who are DJing, as well as non-humans “DevoBot” and “Robot Betty Nine”. The R2D2 builders club will be there and there is a whole “Star Wars” thing going on, so costumes are appreciated! Hopefully there will be a droid that understands the binary language of moisture vaporators…

On December 6th, we will be at the San Diego STEAM Maker Fest at the Del Mar Fairgrounds down San Diego way. This seems to be a more education themed version of the San Diego Mini Maker Faire, which was quite an awesome event! Sponsored by MakerPlace (a commercial hackerspace), 3R’s Robotics, and Rokenbok Education, this show should be huge and awesome!

In January, we are waiting for word back about MAGFest (THE Music and Games Festival) at the Gaylord Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, January 23rd-26th. Hopefully we will be exhibiting and/or performing there. This is a mad games and music party for ~14,000+ people, and should be a riot! We have also enquired with other chiptune groups around the east coast, but haven’t heard back yet.

Also in January, Frequency 4 (Now called Freq.Fest 4.0) will be January 30th to February 1st at “The Smell” in Downtown Los Angeles! SoftEgg’s “Timon Marmex” will be performing a full set this time… you’ll get to hear the power of this fully operational battlestation! Tons of awesome chiptune artists from around the world will invade downtown LA for a couple of nights of awesome!

February 6-8, there is Rockage 4.0 chiptune festival in San Jose, California at San Jose State University’s student union. I’m pretty sure we are exhibiting there. Maybe even performing? We are still waiting for word back from them.

So come on out to these exciting events! They will be awesome!

Shows in Los Angeles! May 2nd and June 22nd!

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

I’ll be playing some shows with the new “Rhythm Core Alpha 2″ soon!

First I am headlining a show at The Social Bar Lounge in Hacienda Heights, California on May 2nd, 2013.
See https://www.facebook.com/events/564668860230353/

I’ll be playing as “Timon Marmex” alongside other great chiptune bands including:
SYNTH CIRCUIT,
BURIED FOR A DAY,
WIZWARS,
TECHNOCRAT,
CYCLOPS ROCK,
and
HERE BETWEEN YOU ME (who wrote the Rhythm Core Alpha 2 demo track “Starshapes”).

Doors open at 8pm and there is a $5 cover. It is a bar, so you have to be 21 or over to attend this show.

SOCIAL BAR LOUNGE
THURSDAY, MAY 2ND 2013
15355 GALE AVE. HACIENDA HEIGHTS,CA
8:00PM 5 BUCKS 21+

The 2nd show is a fundraiser for the Frequency 3.0 Chiptune Festival. The show will take place at “The Smell” in Downtown Los Angeles on June 22nd.

See https://www.facebook.com/events/581210128580495/

At this show I am doing the “DJ” slot which means I play before the bands go on, and inbetween the sets. This is one of those rare shows where I basically get to jam out and create original stuff on the fly, which is what “Rhythm Core Alpha” and “Rhythm Core Alpha 2″ were built for! So if you want to see how to compose and build songs from scratch, come out to the show. And if not, come out anyway because the lineup is killer:
SONIC DEATH RABBIT (the band of Wet Mango and Baseck),
EVILWEZIL,
WIZWARS,
KOOL SKULL,
and DACID.

The show starts at 8pm and there is a $5 cover. This is an all ages show… anybody can come!

All proceeds go towards making Frequency 3.0 (taking place in January 2014) even more awesome than the second edition.

There are two more shows coming up as well, so watch this space for more info!

Here is the video of last weeks show at All Different Colors. Special thanks to Tim Abad for doing the editing and providing the great visuals during the show, and Jeni Roberts and Mike Horton (Evil Wezil) for handling the cameras while I played!
