MuDA presents a night when reggae riddims, video game controllers, dub selectors, radio cassette players, Sound Systems, Atari and Space Invaders collide into the parallel universe that is 8-bit Reggae!
In an alternative sub-culture in which the most important reggae tune of 1985 is the music to a Nintendo game called Wrecking Crew, author Nicolas Nova will discuss the unlikely encounter of Jamaican music with the video game world.

Later in the night, 8-bit DJ Blaise Deville will play some chippy synthy lo-fi rootsy reggae and dubby riddims to transport us... and even make us dance a little.

Autor Nicolas Nova wird die unwahrscheinliche Begegnung der jamaikanischen Musik mit der Welt der Videospiele diskutieren, und später in der Nacht wird 8-bit DJ Blaise Deville uns mit synthy lo-fi rootsy Reggae und dubbigen Rhythmen verwöhnen... und uns sogar ein wenig zum Tanzen bringen.

Based on this exploration of how 8-bit machines such as the C64 and the Nintendo NES crossed the path of reggae-dub, Nova will also discuss the intriguing role of computers and software in such combination, forming what he calls “machinic creolization”: a kind of cultural hybridization in which algorithms and other virtual presences play a role as crucial as the humans that manipulate them.
