Yesterday I was interviewed by Robert Glashüttner. He is currently writing his bacherlor dissertation. His topic is „changing of chiptunes in transition from a technical restriction to an aesthetically dominated music genre“. Sounds complicated. And it actually was. The interview was a lot different to the one I gave to Thomas Dörflinger from bitte8bit last year. I really had to think back all the years I am active in this scene. And during this interview I noticed myself how much this scene changed in the past few years. I mean, I started in 2005. This October I‘m celebrating my 5th anniversary of beeing a chipmusic artist.
I met Robert the first time last summer on the „micromusic get together“ in Berlin. He saw my performance and liked it a lot. I asked him which other artists he interviewed. Besides me he interviewed David Sugar, some people from the Austrian Gameboy Music Club and Thomas Dörflinger from bitte8bit. I was the only German chip-artist he interviewed which honored me a lot!!!
I hope this dissertation gets released as a book. He told me I would receive a copy in PDF format but I don‘t think that this document is meant to be public in first place. There was a dissertation about chipmusic some years ago that was released in book form… I have to look it up.
