Discussions of 8-bit art and music is usually framed in words like limitations, nostalgia and reappropriation. The lecture will examine where these discourses come from and suggest better concepts, that are also useful in modern computing. By combining his long-time personal experience as a musician with research in low-tech hacker cultures, Anders Carlsson’s ideas about man-machine creativity is both controversial and pragmatic.
