Chipocrite

Chipocrite, a.k.a. Paul Weinstein, uses original Nintendo Game Boys, often accompanied by guitar, bass guitar, drums and/or other lo-fi sequencers, to create and perform complex audio masterpieces. His multifaceted but catchy compositions combine the nostalgic game sounds of his childhood with modern music influences. Since emerging from the Philadelphia chip scene just a few years ago, Chipocrite has performed at numerous renowned events and conventions including the Vans Warped Tour, Blip Festival, MAGFest and AnimeUSA; provided soundtracks for commercials — including a nationally televised GameStop ad — as well as video games and online videos; appeared as the musical guest on popular tech-centric Web talk-show series “On The Verge” — and much more. Most recently, he released “8-Bit Lebowski: 100% Electronic,” a low-fi tribute to one of the greatest cult-classic films of all time and its legendary soundtrack.
