Reformat the Planet2008

  • 3.8
REFORMAT THE PLANET is a feature-length documentary that delves into the movement known as chip music, a vibrant underground music scene based around creating new, original music using obsolete video game hardware. Familiar devices such as the Nintendo Game Boy and Nintendo Entertainment System are pushed in new directions with startling results. Using New York as a microcosm for a larger global movement, REFORMAT THE PLANET maps out the genesis of the first annual Blip Festival, a four day celebration of over 30 international artists exploring the untapped potential of low-bit video game consoles. With floor-stomping rhythms and fist-pumping melodies, trailblazers of the chip music idiom descended upon Manhattan to pen a new chapter in the history of electronic music.

Definitely recommended to any fan of the genre, or anyone even casually interested in what it's all about.
