C64 Orchestra Plays Commodore Game Classics

C64 OrchestraThe Commodore 64 has developed a cultish fan base, especially among electronic musicians.

Twenty-five years after Commodore introduced the C64 computer, productiehuis ON invited Rob Hubbard to make orchestral arrangements of the game music written by him and Jeroen Tel for some of the most popular C64 games. Now it’s been released as a two CD package in a very cool boxed set along with original versions, making it a great way to compare a composer’s 8-bit arrangements to his orchestral arrangments.

You can preview a couple of examples below.

Here are the details:

CD 1 The orchestral versions of: Delta, Commando, Monty on the Run, One Man And His Droid and International Karate, Cybernoid II, Hawkeye, Myth and Supremacy

CD 2 The original versions of: Delta, Commando, Monty on the Run, One Man And His Droid and International Karate, Cybernoid II, Hawkeye, Myth, Supremacy and Commando High Score., plus Monty ON The Run (Remix by Deltabeats)
