REFORMAT THE PLANET (RTP) is a feature length documentary that delves into the movement known as chip music, a vibrant underground scene based around creating new, original works using video game hardware. Familiar devices such as the Nintendo Game Boy and Nintendo Entertainment System are pushed in new directions with startling results. Using New York as a microcosm for a larger global movement, RTP maps out the genesis of the first annual Blip Festival, a four day celebration of over 30 international artists exploring the untapped potential of low-bit video game consoles. With floor-stomping rhythms and fist-pumping melodies, trailblazers of the chip tune idiom descended upon Manhattan to pen a new chapter in the history of electronic music.
Disc 1 of RTP features an all new director's cut, commentary track with 2 Player Productions, interviews, deleted scenes and trailers. Disc 2 has RTP 1.5, an all new documentary; conversations with Johan Kotlinski, David Sugar and Peter Swimm; music videos, in addition to chip music tutorials from Bit Shifter and Glomag.
