A 1 day Chipmusic Tracker Workshop on how to use a tracker to write music on an Amiga 600. You don't need the latest Macbook pro running Logic to rock hard and impress your friends. All you need is an old computer and a tracker.

Cost of participation: £15 with a free Amiga to take home at the end of the day.

Brendan Ratliff aka
Syphus started playing piano, violin and Commodore Amiga in 1989, at the age of 6. After growing up with the demoscene, trackers and chipmusic (and growing bored of playing bass in angry teenage metal bands), he eventually started to release his tracked music in chipdisks and demos with the likes of CoolPhat, BDSE, Swedish megastars Up Rough and the mysterious Eunoia.

Suddenly, the 21st Century arrived and the kids started to dig chipmusic. What to do? Become jaded and embittered? No! Saddle up that Amiga and take it to the streets! Syphus plays regular live sets in his hometown of Newcastle (the chipmusic capital of the UK), has toured twice with Sabrepulse and the Chiptune Alliance and has rocked underground festivals across Europe and North America including Blip Festival NY.
