8-Bit Symphony Concert - A symphonic celebration of 8-bit Computer music 15th June 2019!


If your diary is fully booked then cancel all appointments for the 15th June 2019, as we've recently been informed via our email that Hull College with support by C64Audio.com, will be hosting the 8-Bit Symphony concert; a celebration of the music of 8-bit British home computing with the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra.


As noted by the press release, the 8-Bit Symphony concert will feature 100 epic minutes of lovingly orchestrated musical genius from the Commodore 64, the ZX Spectrum and the Amstrad CPC. It will also include compositions from legendary Hull-born composer, Rob Hubbard, who pioneered the use of music in gaming and wrote for more than 75 games in the 1980s.


But that's not all! As they also go on to say, not only is Mr Hubbard composing for GoGoRush, a new platform game created by Hull College. But there will be additional orchestrations by Gremlin’s Ben Daglish, Elite’s Mark Cooksey, Ocean/Interceptor alumnus Gari Biasillo, Cosmi’s Paul Norman, Tomb Raider’s Peter Connelly, Team 17’s Allister Brimble and veteran C64 remixer and impresario Chris Abbott, as well as 100 veterans including musicians, graphic artists, programmers and software house bosses attending, including Jon Hare, Tony Crowther and Andrew Hewson!

So retro gamers get those diaries cleared as you'll not want to miss out on this incredible event performed by the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Robin Tait, at Hull City Hall on Saturday, 15 June at 7.30pm! Tickets will be on sale soon.
