Green Tone Bits is alive and kicking! We may have been silent around here, but we’ve been busy in 2012.Â Let’s take a ride in the wayback machine, shall we?
Early in the year, we were at the first Lisbon Netaudio festival. Shortly after, we turned 3,Â with a special session at Florida After SevenÂ – the after-work event, by Hotel FloridaÂ andÂ Quodis,Â which has since become our host.
We took part in two cultural events: in July we provided the soundtrack to Jan van Bruggen‘s exhibition, Compressed â€“ an opening and closing,Â in two parts (side A and side B), for which we rehashed our chiptune set from session #14. Â More recently, we curated and live mixedÂ (with David Costa) the music forÂ Valentim Quaresma‘sÂ KaleidoscopeÂ show atÂ ModaLisboaÂ PulseÂ – Spring/Summer 2013.
The playlists from sessions #20, #21 and #24 areÂ finally available for download (shame on us, but hey, better late than never): more than 7 hours of music, over 100 tracks, covering enough genres to make anyone happy (folk, pop, lo-fi, glitch, hip-hop, R&B, rock, electro, idm, electronica, surf-rock and others).
And this brings us to today: we are less than a month away from the next session. It will take place at Florida After Seven (as usual) on November 22Â -Â be there! We would love to tell you that if you can’t make it you can listen to the live streaming online… butÂ we are still struggling with some technical issues (and that’s why we haven’t streamed the latest sessions as well). We’re working on that and we’ll try to have it working as soon as possibly.
