An electronic musician based in New York City, Bit Shifter explores high-impact, low-res music produced using primitive gear and synthesis as a deliberate aesthetic choice. Adopting a distillation of the less-is-more philosophy, Bit Shifter operates with a standard Nintendo Game Boy as a means of exploring the aesthetics of economy,
pushing minimal hardware to its maximum. He is also in it for the lolz. Co-administrator of the 8bitpeoples collective & label, and co-founder & co-curator of the international Blip Festival event series now entering its 5th year, Bit Shifter has released music on Hymen, Astralwerks, Mirex, 555 Recordings, and Ketacore, and has logged over 175 performances worldwide.
