Multimedia Performance

TIFF and the Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra present an evening celebrating the music of the video game! Join us during the night-long series of concerts that showcase the versatility, creative spirit and resonance of video game culture. This evening of non-stop video game tunes includes performances by The Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra's collection of musicians playing on custom-hacked Game Boys and home-made, circuit-based instruments. The fun doesn't stop there! Musical groups representing Toronto's diverse cultural landscape will present their interpretations of iconic video game songs and scores through their own unique cultural sound. Get involved as part of the audience by playing games live on our big screens to create video art where the video game play is the source of creative material.
