I’ve been revisiting one of the hobbies I had as a teenager in creating music with computers. Back then, I was writing original pieces for demos but now I’m taking some of my favourite pieces from old video games and breathing a new high fidelity sound into them. These interpretations are how I heard them in my head when I forgot about the way they were simple computer noises being made to sound as if they are a full band or orchestra.
My reason for embarking on this project certainly isn’t for profit or for money in general. All the tracks and albums are free and downloadable from my Soundcloud profile. Rather, I did it to complete a retrospective of how I spent my youth. It’s been also a rekindling a creative whim that can so easily be forgotten.
