8GB
We just thought that we had enough of gameboy music. Most of the times it’s just the same tunes. Suddenly Akira from Buenos Aires contacts us that he’s around. His audio visual performances already rocked acclaimed festivals like Creamfields and Onedotzero. They are visual astonishing. And it’s just nice music.

http://kikencorp.com/8gb

Computadora is Herr Galatran and Dr.Drama with their intelligent happy computer. The sounds and visuals come from old Commodore and Atari computers and the passion comes from extensive performing as part of various punk/hardcore/IDM/electro-constellations through the years. At the moment the computer likes to mashup old 8-bit songs with the humans’ flavour for groovy glitches and electro squarewave party

http://computadora.1xn.org/

With his roots in catchy aswell as extreme music, a Goto80 performance is like an 8-bit uppercut of data death, with toys on top. Who said that pop, grindcore, acid and polka couldn’t be mixed together using bleeps and vocals? With 100 released songs and 50 gigs only in 2007 he has almost become some kind of retarded ambassadeur of lo-tech data error – or “one of the most prolific chipmusic people”, according to the magazine Computer Music. In 2007 he also introduced chipmusic to Israel, was one of three nominees for best C64-composer ever and celebrated 10 years in the C64-demoscene.

http://www.goto80.com/

Stu has earned his name “Don Atari electro” by years of crunchy beats for dance floors and low-tech music lovers worldwide. He became well known due to his ways of tweaking the very limited soundchip of the Atari ST to a completely different level. Nobody can do what Stu does, using only a squarewave and a noise generator on three channels. His complex sound programmings shuffled into groovy rhythms, can arrange soundscapes that are more digitally harsh than any other electro available

Breakcore is the bastardchild of many musical genres like Jungle, IDM, Hardcore, Punk, Ragga, Breakbeats, Industrial and Noise. The most important rule is..? There are no rules! Early breakcore came from 80’s industrial, and got big with Digital Hardcore from the ‘90’s. Always evolving and adding new influences to the canon of breakcore, the artists invited here keep pushing the boundaries. Always forward developing and from the beginning till forever it is having some kind of anarchistic attitude.
Breakcore can be Rave and breakcore can be one big moshpit.

For ZXZW 2008 there will be a special addition in the form of the world’s first ever surround sound breakcore set by Otto von Schirach, Doormouse & Rioteer, using the M.A.S.E. interface with eight independent audio inputs and a library of sound movements. The artists have sample options for assigning a trajectory to an incoming audio signal and to start, stop or localise this. The artists can input the dimensions and shape of a room and the number of speakers which are to be controlled. Otto von Schirach, Doormouse and Rioteer are going to experience for a week long with this new system, and they will present a special breakcore set in this surround form on september 19th.
Furthermore we aim to show the diversity of the genre, as well as provide a meetingpoint for like minded, by putting together artists from all over Europe in The Shape of Breakcore 2 Cum!
