Lectures is BACK in action! This month's lecture is being presented by Don Miller, also known as NO CARRIER. If you've been to IgnitePhilly 1 or 2, or to the IndyHall Birthday Bash, you've seen the Don's work. Now's your chance to learn more about it!

Don's going to will focus a bit on his work, the history of the scene, and some more technical stuff for people that may have questions. It'll be a presentation with video, music, and more!

From Don:

Their time in the spotlight may be over, but many have found uses for forgotten video game consoles and computer hardware. Although 8-bit games are a thing of the past, there is a vibrant art scene with retrocomputing at its core. The hardware of the Game Boy, Nintendo Entertainment System, and the Commodore 64 are repurposed and software reprogrammed to turn these aging machines into synthesizers, sequencers, visualizers, and much more.

Don Miller, or NO CARRIER, is an educator, programmer, and live visualist living in Philadelphia. Part of the 8bitpeoples artist collective, he writes new software for nearly obsolete videogame and computer hardware, for use at live music events and installations. He performs regularly in Philly and NYC, and has recently taken his visuals worldwide. Catch him again this year at the Blip Festival, December 4th-7th 2008, in NYC.

The lecture is taking place at IndyHall on October 29th from 6:30-8:30. RSVP on upcoming!
