"Take 8-bit gadgets (old computers, handheld games, Nintendos, etc), record those blips and bleeps, and string 'em together to make sweet, sweet music -- and you've got the genre known as bitpop. Or chiptune. Or, simply enough, 8-bit. The bitpop world owes a debt to the original bleepers -- krautrockers Kraftwerk"

['8 bit Girl' by by 'Chaosqaal' on YouTube appears to reference the music genre of the chiptune.]
"The reason for creating the "gameboyzz orchestra" was the total lack of any artistic initiatives and activities connected with the cult GameBoy console. The GameBoy console is an 8-bit handheld computer. Its unusually weak (archaic) technical parameters were a challenge and became the reason for creating the "gameboyzz orchestra."We are not an orthodox group and we utilize the latest technologies along with the retro ones used by musicians associated in the MICROMUSIC society whose key word is "low-tech music for high-tech people"-www.micromusic.net. The employed software is written specifically for the GameBoy console [trackers, sequencers, drum machines, etc.; sounds generated live and games]. The sound is accompanied by video projections, lights, smoke, etc."
