"8-Bit Symphony Pro: Second Half" Digital Released

01/08/2022

The 8-Bit Symphony Pro: Second Half album was just released in digital format for those who backed the Kickstarter project. Check your inboxes for the download links.

 

In case you've been living under a rock, the 8-Bit Symphony project arranged many of our favorite C64 SID tunes for an orchestra, which were then performed by an actual orchestra (Czech Studio Orchestra) recorded at Smecky Studios in Prague. And now the second set of those recordings have been released as a two-disc digital album, available in MP3, FLAC, surround sound and Blu-Ray formats.

 

To quote Chris Abbott: Together, we made this impossible project happen - actually, over 50 tracks of symphonic C64, all playable by real orchestra, a load of which were actually orchestrated by Rob fucking Hubbard. Go back even 20 years and tell yourself this would happen and you'd laugh at yourself.

 

In case you missed the Kickstarter, you can also pre-order the physical CD (with instant digital download) or Blu-Ray disc of the album at the link below.

 Gods - Into the Wonderful

Arranged by Andreaux

We found this to be so good we had to feature this song on our Youtube channel 😊

Random review

 Great Giana Sisters

Arranged by Dr Future

Very well-executed from a techincal standpoint, but the end result sounds like elevator music. Slick, well-done elevator music, but elevator music nonetheless.

First and foremost, the original tune relies on its bouncy rhythm to counter what is a rather simple, repetitive melody. Stripped of its bouncy, upbeat nature, as it is in this remix, it plods and goes on for far too long.

In addition, a few gratutious special effects (for instance, the stop the record / tape got eaten effect at 2:04) make this tune too distracting for background music.

To reiterate, and hopefully re-emphasize, this tune is technically masterful, with a very well-balanced stereo soundscape, and even the cheesy drum machine sounds good. It could easily pass for something done by a top-40 producer. It's just a shame when so much effort goes into something that just doesn't quite work in the end.
