Not going to San Diego STEAM Maker Fest due to illness

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Hey, I was supposed to be at the San Diego STEAM Maker Fest this Saturday, but with great regret had to cancel because I am still not well enough to drive to San Diego, much less set up a ton of equipment and then spend the day talking to folks.

So, I’m sorry for all the folks who might have expected to see us there and will not, and I apologise to the folks at the SDSMF for having to cancel.

Perhaps we will be able to attend next year!

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!
