ELECTRONIC | Rochester Chip Fest 

The Rochester Chip Fest is a day-long music festival that features artists who implement sound chips from retro computers and old video-game systems to create new, original music. The entertainment will also include visual artists, interactive workshops, and more. NYC-based 8-bit aficionado Joshua Davis, a.k.a. Bit Shifter, is among the acts slated to perform. Davis employs Nanoloop technology and handheld Nintendo Game Boy consoles in the manufacturing of a low-bit, high-energy electronic sound that "leaves high-end computer music choking on his exhaust, bringing twice the rock with 0.00002 percent of the processing power."

Rochester Chip Fest takes place Saturday, December 8, 5 p.m. at the SAU Cafeteria at RIT, 1 Lomb Memorial Drive. Free with RIT I.D., $15 for the general public. 475-2509,
