8 bit Symphony - anyone going tonight in Hull?

Recommended Posts

Anyone going to this tonight? No idea what to expect, aside from classic c64 tunes played by an orchestra, but I'm really looking forward to it.

Well, it was great. An 84 piece orchestra playing arrangements of some classic C64 tunes was quite the delight.

No, no Wizball, I'm afraid. 

 

I think it was a bit of a one off as it was funded by Hull College and played by Hull Philharmonic Orchestra.

I was there with my wife, we were at the VIP reception before and met Paul Norman (Aztec Challenge, Forbidden Forest), then had amazing seats in the gallery for the concert.

 

It sounded amazing, the videos on the projector were superb and there were tributes to Ben Daglish and Richard Joseph.

 

www.c64audio.com for news on the 8-Bit Symphony box set (no recording of the concert, but orchestral remixes and printed scores). Sales of that will make another concert more likely.
