Flashback 2009: Rainbowdragoneyes
Rainbowdragoneyes played Blip Festival on Friday, December 18th, 2009.
Blip : So, you played blip 2009, how did it change your life?
Blip : How did you go about preparing you music for Blip?
Well as I was asked to play, I was forced to figure out how… and not really wanting to change my songs around at all I figure I would just deliver them in the most party way possible to get the crowd hyped. My original intention with the project was to have enough songs with vokills to be singing the entire set, which is what I do now, because it gives me something to do other than dance around like a fool. But I have been explore more ways to incorporate the Gameboy live of late, which lets face it, people really need to see at a Chiptune show more ways to incorporate the gameboy live of late, which lets face it, people really need to see at a Chiptune show.
They seemed to take it pretty friggin well- which got me super pumped to keep it going. I was scared shitless, for about an hour before my set backstage I was pacing back and forth and peeing every 3 minutes.
Blip : What prompted the circle pit? Did you think people would go for it or not?
I did not know how they were going to react at all, especially since there wasn’t much to my performance other than a full-body spasm for 30 minutes. I dunno, just something I always see metal singers do, people usually go for it, figured I’d give it a shot, haha!
Blip : Do you have any other special memories from the festival? Odd little details or funny stories?
Just wandering into the city on my own, my first one-man-wolfpack vacation… meeting dozens of people I talk to online but never before met in real life, hanging out with musicians I never thought I would ever get the chance to meet, let alone share the same stage with. So many people knew my name and I had no idea why or who they were, that whole weekend was unbelievably surreal. Words cannot describe I’m afraid, which sucks for you because you have to type words
Blip : Final question, 3 acts you would like to see on your dream festival line up?
Derris-Kharlan, Derris-Kharlan, Derris-Kharlan
