Confipop -4 bits Gameboy live-
Confipop is a chipmusic Marseille based artist who makes music with a Gameboy and some modified sound toys. Native from the techno free party, he has been making music under different pseudonyme since 1996. As the best dancefloor’s friend, Confipop makes a happy and groovy dancing music, which goes from reggaeblip to technoblop, with the specific 4 bits sound of the gameboy: a modern music with old forgotten gamesound, very appropriated to have fun. Building his own toys/instruments, Confipop is an adept and a teacher of “circuitbending”, which consists in modifying toys in order to make music rather than buying expensive instruments. Confipop is running the Marseille Micro_HQ with chipmusician Dubmood, organising workshops, seminars and concerts dedicated to chip music with the French organisations La Cyber Nostra and Freesson, booking artists and broadcasting regular radio-shows on radio Galere.
