The Chiptorrent netlabel is a chip music/culture-label that relies on the Bittorrent-protocol for distribution of it’s releases. It’s mainly run by it’s founder Gasten.
Unlike other chip music labels, this label is not only for musicians but everyone who consider them self part of the chip and micromusic culture: Track-purists, pixel artists, ascii wranglers, gfx haxers, retro beauties, troll-whores, democoders, b3t4-t3sters, sample-rippers, bbs-dwellers, Reason-rockers and everyone else. That’s why there is much more stuff than just music in the Chiptorrents: You will find texts, pictures, html-pages, video-clips, podcasts, software/source code, and much much more inside!
How can I send material to a compilation?
You can send links (not myspace!) and attachments to my email: operagasten -atatat- gmail -dototot- com. If nothing else is noted you are free to use whatever file-format and -size that you like – just keep in mind that there are a wide variety of people on an even wider variety of platforms that want to see what you’ve created.
How can I contribute?
If you like the Chiptorrent-releases, there are two things you can do to help:
- SEED! Pretty obvious, but very appreciated. When your download is completed, leave your bittorrent-client on for as long as possible with a pretty high upload-limit.
- Host the compilation. All torrents die sooner or later. If you have access to a ftp/http-server, please consider donating some hard drive-space and band width and let future chippers experience to the compilation.
