Dj CUTMAN Video Game DJ Set @ RETURN OF THE DEATH BEAR

8 02 2010

Moving Box audio engineer Chris Davidson AKA Dj CUTMAN performed his first DJ set @ RETURN OF THE DEATH BEAR last week. After discovering the pimp-awesome music site SoundCloud, Chris posted his set online for anyone to listen to it (this means you!) He mixes familiar game tunes  and covers with high quality arrangement and production. This isn’t an 8-bit orgy of square waves, all these tracks are all well-produced pieces of music. Chris says:

“I’m bringing something new to the table, only the best in video game remixes and chip-tune music. Remixes of classic game tunes have been being produced for a long time, but only a few tracks shine in the sea of mediocre renditions of super compositions. I’ve been collecting game music for over ten years, and with DJ Cutman I hope to showcase the best of the best of this awesome music

Chris & MC Deathbear at MAGFest 8

13 01 2010

From December 31st – January 4th, Chris and MC Death Bear were in Alexandria, VA for the 8th annual MAGFest convention. MC Death Bear was selling his art and promoting the Moving Box animation Purgatory Pizza, coming soon to DVD!

It was a fun time, for sure, and MC Death Bear sold a lot of art. The MAGFest crew set up arcade games on free play and tons of console games throughout the hotel. There were panel discussions by a number of video game and voiceover celebrities, and nearly constant music performance from everything from chip-tune circuit benders to classical musicians, playing video game and video game inspired tunes. There were even live painters and hard-core cosplayers, all the ingredients for a dork-tastic good time. Definitely going next year. Check out more info at MAGFest.org

Art show tonight at Moving Box

18 12 2009

Hey everyone! So a lot of work has gone into getting this show ready. We have added a lot of functionality to the studio to properly display the amazing artwork that has been contributed to the show. We hope to see everyone there and know that it will be an amazing time. Come out and support the local artists of this town. Local band (Ayurveda) performing 2 live sets, local art from over 10 local artists (including myself who will be presenting a visual art piece for Ayurveda’s show), and your local studio (Moving Box Studios, Hazaa!) You get all this for only $10 . Pretty incredumalous if you ask me. We hope to keep doing more of these type of events. See you there! (BYOB)
