The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “The Art of Video Games” Exhibit will feature music by Computeher and 8 Bit Weapon!

We are proud to announce ComputeHer and 8 Bit Weapon’s music will be featured in the forthcoming “The Art of Video Games” exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC! “The Art of Video Games” will explore the 40-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium. Both ComputeHer and 8 Bit Weapon will have a combined total of 5 songs being used in a soundtrack at the entrance to this historic exhibition. 8 Bit Weapon’s songs, “The Art of Video Games Anthem” and “Miami Dub Bounce” off the new album “Bits with Byte” are used as well as “Chip on your Shoulder.” ComputeHer’s songs, “Twilight Byte” and “Dark Pub” from her album “Modemoiselle” are also featured. We are profoundly honored to participate in such an important exhibition. We’d like to thank everyone at the Smithsonian American Art Museum as well as our fans for making this possible. Here is the official “The Art of Video Games” Press Release.
