C64 music makes a comeback
In the 80s, I was involved in many intense playground discussions on which was better, the IBM 286, Apple II series or the Commodore 64. Although my loyalties rested with my trusted Apple IIc, I had to admit that the C64 had some pretty sweet games. Back then, musicians needed to be assembly language programmers in order to compose music for these machines. Currently, the newly formed C64 Orchestra is in rehearsals for a concert devoted to music from C64 games. Two C64-composers, Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel, are involved, which brings the street credibility a project like this deserves. Of course, they have a myspace page, where you can get more information.
The concert will be held on Sept. 22, 2006 at the Gigant, in Appledoorn, Netherlands.
