Corset Lore

Over the last twelve years Tamara Yadao has spent in the chip music scene, she has been drawing inspiration from the inventiveness of (to name a few): YMO, Kate Bush, Japan (band), video games, fantasy, science fiction, and the demoscene, a late 20th century computer art subculture. As a result, Yadao’s music deftly expresses neurodivergent worlds. Worlds where existential discomfort drives survival through innovation by idiosyncratic thought. Among others she has performed her music at the Hackers on Planet Earth conference NYC, OPENSIGNAL Festival at Brown University, a main stage set at Super MAGfest, Press Start Festival at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Cafe La Siesta in Kyoto, 8Bit San Francisco at DNA Lounge, FreqFest at The Smell in LA, 8static festival at First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, Eyebeam NYC and PAX East. She is also the recipient of a Jerome Fund commissioning grant from the American Composer’s Forum and has released two chip music EPs — Corset Lore on the Philly 8static imprint and Graces and Furies with seminal NYC chip music label 8bitpeoples. Recent and upcoming projects include original music contributions for Twilio’s Super NES styled RPG, Twilioquest 3, upcoming synth + chip concept record 81 Terpsichore in 2022 and Fried Tofu Recordings’ Remedy, a benefit comp for the Asian Mental Health Collective. https://www.corsetlore.com/
