Welcome to the second installment of COLOURAMA (held biennially), an event dedicated to the best and brightest from the realm of 8bit music and its related disciplines. The event showcases the use of the former heavyweight champions of computing; Commodore 64 and Amiga, Atari ST and 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy - all this in the form of audiovisual experience.
This event was and still is the platform for chiptune music, the first and still the only one in Malaysia but done at an international standard. Not only we features the local heroes but also our regional and international comrades too! COLOURAMA is not just a place to exchange ideas between the musicians but also to expose our kind of music, no matter how niche to new audience.
COLOURAMA has always been about combining the music and visuals to give the audience a euphoric experience that intertwines the nostalgic and fresh feelings. It is after all; based on hey days of 8bit era (1982 – 1990) and we really mean it.
Our love for all things 8bit, from the games to its culture extends to the realisation of this event. It shows with our selection of musicians and visual artists. We will revisit the days where we were constantly challenging ourselves with technology limitations. As for 2010, we are bringing you the best from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and France. Lo and behold!
