"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.

Listening Recommendation

 Comic Bakery

Arranged by Instant Remedy

Well, this is my all time favorite remix, regardless of platform. It's been at parties, in my car, during work and at home. Even my girlfriend had to fight her "hate" against my "addiction" to SID and its remixes, and admit it was a catchy little tune. To me, it never gets old.

I like the arrangement and the drive it has. The persistent kick/bass-line and percussion (dam-dara-dam-da-ra) works perfectly, and its not too noisy and does not drown out the other instruments in the mix.

It might not be the most varied production ever when it comes to arrangement and originality, and could easily become a little repetive. But it dont. It does something new whenever its close to getting old, and the interlude makes sure it survives another go at the lead.

The low-to-high sliding at the end, before it all fades out, ends it perfectly. I dont think I have anything negative to say about this piece. The nostalgic factor on this one is... well... too huge. Good work, you need to whip up more like this.

 Green Beret Cosmix

Arranged by cosmiq

8 years on and it still sends chills down my spine. The opening with the birds chirping is a great counterpoint for all the synth pads, the drums appearing 2+ minutes into the tune are a subtle driving force, and the undertones present throughout the arrangement are just superb. As brilliant as Reyn's remix is - which is the one that provided the inspiration for this remix - sometimes I actually prefer to listen to this tune over Reyn's version. It feels more polished, more velvety, more comforting. And it never fails to make me wonder.
