Vibe to Low Tech Electronic Music at Binary

Stripped-down and simple, the usually heavy electronic music takes a step back at Binary, a low tech electronic music event this Saturday. Expect an impressive line-up of international artists that includes California-based Snoopdroop, who takes on Chiptune, an electro sub-genre reminiscent of old-school video games, and homegrown musician Zeekos Perakos – who will be importing his own brand of improv electronica. Can’t make it to the event? Tune in to the live stream on Twitch.

Binary is happening on 21 March 2020, 7pm – 11pm at Tonehouse Studios SG, 35 Selegie Rd, #03-09 Parklane Shopping Mall, Singapore 188307. Admission is on a pay-as-you-wish basis. Livestream will be available on Twitch.
