"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

 Zybex (Zipbacks feat. BakiTheFox Kacepru)

Arranged by DJ Czyszy

The purist in me is protesting: but this is not a 1:1 cover of the original! True, but it's still bloody amazing! The rock-style arrangement is spot-on, the instrumentation was obviously carefully chosen, the guitars are played craftily, and the result is a powerful piece of music that also happens to be a mind-blowing SID remix.

 Game Over

Arranged by Kenz

Gosh - this tune must have been out for ages before I finally managed to hear it (on a slay radio show - no less). Yeah I know there's a whole load of the original chucked in there, but it's very well balanced. To be honest, there's nothing I don't like about this - and lots of things I do. The Sid lead sounds fresh - as do all of the drums... and that bass line is superb.
This is one that nearly passed me by, and I can't really remember being a fan of the original, but this is a great little cover. Bang on stuff - and a current fav on my compilation at the moment. A bit of a shame that lovely bass and main theme couldn't have lasted a bit longer - but all in all I really love this.
