blip tokyo

Blip Festival Tokyo was more than 8,000 miles away, but I was able to catch some of the second day action.    The sound from was very good from blipfestival Ustream channel.  Depending on the angle of the camera I could see the performer(s) and visuals.  The pixelation added to the visuals.    I was able to watch from my computer then to my TV.  At the end of the show I listened to it live in the car.  I am spoiled with today’s technology.

I only had 3.5 hours of sleep before the show started after 2 AM.  I quickly became wide awake when Cheapshot hit the stage.  No need to ease the crowd in with the opening act.  CTrix might make the stringed guitar obsolete.  Nullsleep has such a heavy sound, and I like it how it keeps getting tweaked.  Did I watch Omodaka or fall asleep to have a wonderful dream of singing monitors?  I got a little emotional with Sexy-Synthesizer’s Devo cover.  Je Jeviens DJ en 3 Jour was playing while I was in the car with the speakers pumped up.  Luckily I got to see a video later of the Jjdj3j dance squad.  Life got in the way of seeing and listening to the other acts that day.
