The Oracle, Arranged by Minusbaby

from by Various Artists



Long-time 8bitpeoples member, Minusbaby (born Richard Alexander Caraballo) lives in New York City, serving nebulous ambrosia, blushing dissonance and surprises. While it may be impossible to predict what will happen at each performance, one constant can be expected: a forceful equatorial beat with a bassy bottom end to make anything bump and bounce that hasn't been tied down; exploding the very meaning of 8-bit orchestration.

In addition to music, he is a prolific pixel artist who, since 1999, has been largely responsible for defining the unique aesthetics of the modern 8-bit creative movement. Spearheading the visual identities of 8bitpeoples, Pulsewave and the Blip Festival has contributed to making his work ubiquitous to the public's perception of chip music and art. His work, which he has referred to as, "a practice in primitivism, but mostly a stab at trying to continue several traditions at once," is often guided by a central idea meant to be triumphed by the individual.

Combining his love for type, patterns and limited palettes, Minusbaby has developed his own unique visual and musical languages where rather than easing into common trends, he utilizes multiple sources outside of videogame culture to broaden both his and the movement's repertoire so as to expand the canon and avoid Super Mario cannons.
