Ever seen a gAtari ? The inventor plays Wellington tonight!

cTrix is playing at Puppies in Wellington tonight (Friday 23 November).

cTrix is the stage name of the Australian who invented the gAtari 2600 (pictured above), check out this clip of him explaining and introducing the machine before some footage of him rocking it out at the 2011 Blip Festival in Tokyo.

cTrix has been noodling around with electronic music since forever. He moved to sequencing on an Amiga during the 90’s and produced live techno on a series of music workstations in the late 90’s. A wave of unstable software plagued “modern” computers in the 2000’s so he decided to ditch it all for the computers he grew up with and take his production skills to the simplest computers he could find.

He has created music for the Gameboy, Lynx, MSX, C64, Amiga and Atari 2600 rocking Blip festivals in both US & Japan and touring Europe, NZ and Mexico during 2012. Expect techno and melodic breaks from an original Gameboy, dance anthems from an Amiga, the bass shaking sounds of the gAtari (Atari 2600 guitar) and above all, an awesome amount of fun!
