Rhythm Core Alpha 2 confirmed to exhibit at MAGfest 2016!

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

We will once again be at MAGfest in National Harbor, Maryland this February exhibiting “Rhythm Core Alpha 2″!
For those who don’t know, MAGfest is the Music And Games Festival, a crazy ~20,000 person party celebrating all things games, but especially game music! It is truly an event “by fans, for fans”, and commercially oriented at all, so we are very pleased to be chosen to present at this amazing event.
We had to skip last year because we didn’t register a hotel room in time and it all sold out, but we didn’t make that mistake again this year!
So, all of our east coast US fans, please come out and see us at MAGfest! We’ll be in the indie arcade section of the massive  dealer room / video arcade  / console game room / etc.! We will have some limited edition Rhythm Core Alpha 2 stickers to give away, and will be doing tutorials all day, every day!

Had to back out of Magfest

Monday, December 1st, 2014

It looks like we won’t be attending Magfest this year after all. We only got our approval for the indie arcade space a week ago, and were not able to confirm our travel and lodging situation before all of the hotels close to the convention had sold out, and so it became too expensive to reasonably attend. We’re sorry to all of the folks who expected us to be there… we really wanted to go!
We are still planning to attend other events a little closer to home, including Frequency and Rockage.
We also hope to be at the San Diego STEAM Maker Fest next weekend, assuming that I have gotten over this nasty cold that kept me from presenting at Loscon this past weekend.
Anyway, our best wishes to anybody going to Magfest. Perhaps we could send along some flyers or something…

Not! In the “Make Room!” at Loscon 41 in Los Angeles this weekend!

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Oh hey! We’re sick, and might not make it to Loscon after all! Our apologies…

Oh, hey! We’ll be in the “Make Room! Make Room!” maker exhibit at Loscon 41 in Los Angeles, California doing demos and stuff this weekend! It is a fun time, so be there!

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!

January = Awesome for Rhythm Core Alpha!

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

It looks like more people bought Rhythm Core Alpha 2 and Rhythm Core Alpha in January than even at the launch of Rhythm Core Alpha 2! This means more people are discovering the joy of making their own music thanks to Rhythm Core Alpha 1 & 2 and we think that is pretty awesome!

Certainly, a lot of people got new 3DS and 2DS systems for Christmas, and that helps a lot! But we have also been demoing like crazy at events like Magfest in National Harbor, Maryland, Frequency 3.0 in Los Angeles, California, and even Sparklecon at 23b Shop in Fullerton! We’ve had fliers out at Anime LA in Los Angeles, and even chatted up some folks at NAMM in Anaheim, California.

Our next stop is Rockage at San Jose State University, followed by Timon Marmex performances at Blacklight District Lounge in Long Beach, CA on February 12th, and Five Star Bar in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19th (right around the corner from where Frequency was!) We’ve planned to be at the LA Science Fair Mini Maker Faire again at the end of March and just applied for the original Bay Area Maker Faire in May. There are a lot more events scheduled as well, so it looks to be a busy year!

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!

More loops!

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Distilling the last 3 years of shows with Rhythm Core Alpha 2 into a set of demo loops that you can make your own music with. Some of these are really good, but even then they often need some work to stretch them out into 64 beat patterns with fills and extra muted tracks for customization. Work on these for too long and you start to get a little “loopy”… ;)

Want to show at MagFest, but can’t seem to get in touch with them…

Monday, November 29th, 2010

I can’t seem to get any response to my queries about showing Rhythm Core Alpha at MagFest. Anybody got any ideas on how to reach them

Penny Arcade Expo

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Oh look, Penny-Arcade Expo is in… 7 days. I should probably be there to promote Rhythm Core. Not much hope, but I sent them an e-mail. Maybe they will say yes? Seattle anyone?
