8staticfestival.com is Live & PCB based rewards & Our Chip School

If you've visited 8staticfestival.com (8staticfest.com if you hate typing) you may have only seen a simple gif or two.  Now we have a full fledged site with information galore to come.  As it stands we have the performers listed, venue information, and tickets are now available.  Coming soon you will see bio pages for all of the performers, some clear directions to the venue, and some other pieces of valuable information.  We think the site looks nice and retro.  Who needs slick rounded corners and fancy modern GUI's when you've got pixel power!  Low Rez 4 Lyfe.

We've been getting a lot of questions about the noise maker and the PCB plaque (printed circuit board).  Both of these are going to look majorly awesome!  Below is a preview pcb we made for another project.  Imagine a PCB similar to this one with an awesome 8static logo and some components attached.  Also imagine a cool looking pcb with your name (in a monochromatic pixel logo) printed on it.  This stuff is going to be limited edition so we will not be selling the noise maker or PCB plaque at our monthly show.  Tell everyone to act now!

Also for sale we have some priceless chip music education.  Keep in mind that these educational lessons can also be purchased as gifts for other people.  Maybe you have a kid who is interested in old sounds or a friend who wishes he were rocking out with a gameboy?  Our chip lessons are taught by professionals in the field with many many years of experience.  A lesson from them is invaluable and the knowledge can be applied to most other forms of electronic music.  If you can rock out on a chiptune tracker, any electronic music medium will be ridiculously easy to understand.  Take part in a one of a kind, customized educational opportunity today!

Also, as usual, please share this with everyone.  Tell your friend, exclaim to your family, text your cat.  Yes...  fax your hamster too.  Excuse me while I check my beeper... the rewards are in high demand!
