Forming in 2001, Chrism and Fenris are notable for their circuit bending approach to retro computing electronic music. Using rewired and custom programmed Commodore 64's, a custom programmed Game Boy Advance and other musical equipment, they create improvised chiptunes and Game Boy music. Their music has been described as "immersive, engaging, hypnotic and unique." and "more hip-hop these days, with a few genuine rhythms amongst the Atari Teenage Riot endings."
In 2004 Chrism and Fenris was featured as part of the lineup at the Electrofringe Festival in Newcastle, New South Wales, and the Straight Out Of Brisbane festival in Queensland.
In November 2005 they each provided a remix for the Superengine debut EP, Triangulation.
Chrism and Fenris were nominated for the Best Live Electronic Act WAMi award in 2005 and 2006.
