The video is a series of video remix, sound art and live coding inspired by the game console Atari 2600, mixed with historical pictures of Brasília city (Brazil capital federal), and Salvador city (also called: The biggest carnival in the world). The sounds were made by live coding with Tidal Cycles, using sound samples extracted from the selected games, including Pitfall! (released by Activision in 1982), Enduro (released by Activision in 1983), River Raid (published by Activision in 1982), Keystone Kapers (developed and published by Activision in 1983), Megamania (released by Activision in 1982), and Pac-Man (developed and published by Atari, Inc. in 1982).

The series is a work-in-progress and soon new eposodes will be released, you can find more info and news on the links below.
