Europe in 8-bits
"Europe in 8-bits" is a documentary that explores the world of chip music, a new musical trend that is exponentially growing throughout Europe. The stars of this musical movement reveal to us how to reuse old videogames hardware like Nintendo’s GameBoy, NES, Atari ST, Amiga and the Commodore 64 to turn them into a tool capable of creating a new sound, a modern tempo and an innovative musical style. This is a new way of interpreting music performed by a great many artists who show their skills in turning these “limited” machines designed for leisure in the '80s into surprising musical instruments and graphical tools.
