Entering its 2nd time (once in 2 years) of celebrating the best and brightest from the realm of chipmusic and its related disciplines, COLOURAMA event showcases the use of the former heavyweights of computing such as the Commodore 64 and Amiga, the Atari ST and 2600, and the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy to create arresting music and visual art.

Colourama shows performance of the musicians chiptune reliable local and foreign countries. Aims to realize the ropes of fellowship, support the morale among the musicians, and a place to exchange ideas and show the capability of the musicians.

The main idea for COLOURAMA is to combines music, design, visual and fashion in one place! Our main concept for this event is 8 bit game era (1982-1990) – and in particular the graphics architectures, algorithms and techniques being employed at that time in computer games. BLIP FEST is the main event for all chiptuners and it is held in New York every year and COLOURAMA is the only annual event that focus on chiptune music in Malaysia!

This year. Colourama II consist performance from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and France.

Why PEOPLE will go to this event?
