Since late 2008, Alex Kiefer has been composing music for the Nintendo Game Boy under the stage name ‘exileFaker’, inspired by the energy of the New York City chip music scene and the possibilities of Johan Kotlinski’s LSDj software. His sound is the result of careful selection from among the products of who knows what unconscious processes.
