I/O Chip Music Compilation vol. 1
Special thanks: Ethan Minsker of the Antagonist Art Movement for the ideas and ethos of within the Antagonist Manifesto; Marissa Bea at the Antagonist Art Movement and Alphabet City Soup: for all their support during the 2009-10 shows at Niagara Bar. Kris Keyser for coming up with the name and all the support early on. Jasper Coolidge at Fontana’s Bar in Chinatown, Ian Coletti and Lisa Di Donato of Vaudeville Park in Brooklyn: for taking care of us and giving I/O a home, not just a venue. Thanks to I/O Chip Music’s staff: Mike Goodman, Anthony Trentinella, and Dannel Jurado. A very special thanks to the unsung hero and co-founder of I/O, who books the shows and works behind the scenes, Ricardo Almonte.
Thanks to all the promoters and curators who had all the good ideas and were the template for I/O: Mike Rosenthal and Peter Swimm at The Tank and TCTD, Don Miller of 8static, and Jenn de la Vega and Facundo Castro of Cheese ‘N’ Beer. Thanks all the chip music fans who came out to drink and dance and have a good time. And finally, thanks to the visualists and chip musicians who deigned to play for little or no money, on Monday nights, through notorious New York City blizzards and heat waves. For every fan and artist who jumped in to fix the sound or the attitudes and generally made the show run smoothly--thank you.
