B I T M A P: as good as new is the official adjunct visual art exhibition to the Blip Festival, curated by Marcin Ramocki and held at acclaimed Brooklyn gallery vertexList. Special exhibition opening party on 11 24 featuring a rare east coast live performance by x|k. Staunch DIY engineering advocate and the developer of the custom MIDINES hardware interface heard on tracks by Bogdan Raczynski and Venetian Snares, x|k issues intense, visceral, minimal, hard-hitting electronics that defy the humble nature of the off-the-shelf NES hardware he adopts.
The exhibition as a whole runs until Sunday February 3rd 2008. Official description is as follows:
