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.

Festival multimédia GAMERZ 04:
In Aix-en-Provence (FR.), from January 8 th until February 6 th 2009.
Opening on Thursday January 8 th, starting at 7 p.m.


What is going on when video games turn to be a medium that allows artists to create? When artists invest fields such as virtual universes, or network? When contemporary art meets entertaining and freaking universes?
Back from Istanbul and for the fourth time, the international event GAMERZ spreads over the city of Aix-en-Provence, taking over three locations of contemporary art. From early 2009, a real cultural tour emulates the city during a month, inviting the public to discover the new creation through a serie of exhibitions, meetings, and performances.
Away of a simple festival, GAMERZ deploys a deep work over artistic creations and new interventions around creative processes.
Realized in cooperation with Germany, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, Turkey, Austria, England, and in collaboration with Second Nature association, M2F Créations is undertaking a real inter-cultural exchange and proposes an intense rendez-vous with contemporary art in the region of P.A.C.A.
