Are there any people who perform in text mode? Yes. Me and Raquel Meyers have two text mode performances coming up – both in Göteborg (Norway). The first one is at the chip-noise event BIT BRUS. We will only use C64s, so it’s 100% PETSCII SID DATA. Improvisations will be based on Oso, Acid Burger, In The Name of the Sword and other petscii hits.
The second performance/installation is called Mind the Volcano and will be presented at Textival. The idea is to explore the area inbetween books and movies (film and typewriter) in text mode. There will be 40 headphones for the audience to use. Musically, the sounds will be more like 2SLEEP1.
