Saturday evenings, either by design or accident, is when the biggest "holy shit?!" moments go down at Blip Festival. Last night, day two of Blip Fest 2012, continued the traditional and then some.
That video above is Omodaka. The multimedia powerhouse is one of two acts that festival organizers said were absolutely do-not-miss.
Omodaka graced the stage of Blip Festival Tokyo last year, and can be somewhat described at a witches' brew of DS Lite, Game Boy Color, PSP, and super kawaii videos, all masterfully orchestrated by a mysterious individuals donning a theater mask and kimono. But honestly, that's barely scratching the surface.
One of the best things about Blip Festival is the foreign talent they bring to American soil. And Omodaka's set, which essentially combines traditional Kabuki Theater and beloved Japanese chiptunes atheistic, can easily be considered a bold new step forward for the medium.
The second must-see act at Blip Fest 2012 was Josh Davis, aka Bit Shifter, longtime friend to Nullsleep and co-founder of the modern chiptune scene. Bit Shifter completely tore the house down with his dance your ass off set.
