When I'm writing articles or going through a lovely bit of atmospheric photography, I have just have to listen to orchestra music. It is not only soothing for the mind, but it just makes you feel all happy inside. So when Seppo gave us the heads up for a ' Back in Time Symphonic Collection - C64 Symphonic Box Set Kickstarter ' I just couldn't hold back my excitement any longer and wrote this article!
In this Kickstarter by C64Audio.com which is pushing for a £30,000 goal, they are aiming to raise money to arrange and produce a box set of Symphonic Commodore 64 studio arrangements that sound like properly large, epic )(or bouncy and fun, or eerie and mysterious) film soundtracks. Not only that but they also want to produce full transcripts for orchestras to play live in concerts, creating a new generation of SID fans with incredible scores for people of all ages.
Certainly a worthy Kickstarter indeed and if it hasn't pulled you in for that extra pledge, there are a number of beautiful scores you can listen to on the page today. So if C64 music played by an Orchestra is to your liking ( it is mine! ) head on over to the Kickstarter before the 20 days is up and back it.
