Biography

With only Nintendo Game Boys and an old computers from the 80s, Pulselooper makes electronic music filled with beats and loops, heavier and more distorted than most of newer hi-fi music gadgets.

Pulselooper is a chipmusic project by André ZP, audiovisual producer and musician who always preferred the ease and aesthetic of lo-fi and home recordings, whether in bands like McQuade or in solo projects as Black Barn Music and Color TV. With Pulselooper, André goes beyond the low-fidelity and presents low-resolution tracks, going between techno and breakbeats. All in 8-bit and 16-bit.

Since its birth in 2008, Pulselooper has released three EPs on Chippanze.org - brazilian first chipmusic netlabel/collective, of which André is founding member. Cheap Pills for Chip Thrills (2009), composed completely with one Game Boy classic; Pulselooper II (2009), using a Nintendo DS; and Grayscale Skyline (2010), produced using two synched Game Boys. 

His electronic music made using vintage consoles has visited, among other places, 2010 Campus Party, the GameMusic Festival (both in Sao Paulo), the Continuum Arts and Technology Festival in Recife, the Animefriends in São Paulo and the FILE Hypersonica in Rio de Janeiro, where Pulselooper played among Bit Shifter, Covox, Sabrepulse and other big names from the world chipmusic scene. 

Updating obsolete technologies into the 21st century, André keeps making tunes using two synched Game Boys and a Commodore Amiga. The result of this is a low-tech combo of nostalgic, heavy, dancing blips and blops.
