(K-RAA-K)3 organizes in september a mini-festival focusing on music made with a ... Gameboy. Indeed, in times of unlimited soft- and hardware possibilities a new fascinating new trend comes up where even Amiga, Atari or Commodore computers tend to be seen as advanced. 4 or 8bit sound are adored. In 2000 the Swedish Rolemodel released a first version of his self-written “musicsoftware” for the gameboy. He spent hundreds of hours in his bedroom to break down the code and make his idea running in a program. A strong internet community suddenly was present to support his ideas and people from all over the world started to make music with the gameboy and his illegal (as it’s not recognized by Nintendo) software. In November the French recordlabel Relax Beat will release a first compilation and this festival, is after the first london trial, the presentation of the release. MTV and ARTE thought already this unknown side of the gameboy is extremely interesting, but the artists prefer to keep it underground at this moment. Or as Rolemadel reacted on the sudden attention:”Can’t they leave my hobby in peace?” On saturday 6 september we invite not only the Swedish Software maker Rolemodel but also Covox, brilliant electropop. Both Swedish guys will be supported by the Belgian gameboy-crew: Lo-Bat, Hyperkut, Trez&Brioche and Dilemma. http://www.kraak.net/boyplayground/
