本イベントの主催者で、イギリス出身のCheapshotです。チップチューンのレーベル、CheapBeats Recordsやチップチューンフェスティバル「Square Sounds Tokyo」を主催しています。 大学時代(2001年)に曲作りを始め、テクノを中心に作ってきました。2009年に8-bitの音に惚れ、曲を作るたびに、8-bitの要素を徐々に多く入れるようになりました。 2014年までは、主に初代ゲームボーイとLSDJで、ピュアな8-bit世界で実験したり、遊んだり、曲を作ったりをしていました。他にはLittle Piggy TrackerやNanoloopでアルバムを出しています。最近はNanoloopとTeenage EngineeringのPO12ドラムマシンでライブをしています。お楽しみに! リリースはmetrodub、と8bitpeoples、OSCBoxとCheapbeatsでEPやアルバムを出しています。 Nano夏 by cheapshot Links ~ CheapBeats ~ Twitter ~ Facebook ~ SoundCloud ~
