The 8-Bit Pete Lectures

A talk given at a videogame movie night run by Flatpack Film Festival

June 2010

I had a short period as a chiptune DJ at Kings Heath’s fashionable Hare and Hounds pub and was asked to show / present something at 7inch Cinema’s 8bit night on June 28th 2010. I ran this video and talked over it, attempting to explain what was going on.

7inch Cinema was the precursor to, and eventually folded into, the Flatpack Film Festival.

(I found the chiptune scene interesting because they made complex work with a very limited palette. Ironically I have zero interest in computer games. For this reason I stopped DJing at computer games events and 8bit Pete was retired.)
