Nuit-Blanche 2011: The Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra!
The 2011 edition of Toronto’s all-night-art-thing, Nuit Blanche, saw Cinema 1 of TIFF Bell Lightbox welcome over five thousand visitors as it was filled to the brim with bits, bytes, and beats as live music and big-screen video games came together on stage.

Endless Films provided intense levels of video support, directing the filming and processing over a terabyte of HD footage all in one night.
Interactive artist and game designer Tino Kapataneas created our awesome isometric Lightbox that you see above here and in the trailer.
This night of gaming-inspired music was curated by Nick Pagee, Kate Dickson, Shaun Hatton and Jonathan Guberman, in partnership with Site 3 coLaboratory.

Custom Chiptunes Instruments!
Co-conspirator and not-evil genius Jonathan Guberman custom designed these electronic noise makers. A limited edition run of 150 were made and handed out to the first several rows of the audience for the special midnight performance from the Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra.
