A new album called Pixels arrived through the letter box today. That’s not entirely true – 1,500 copies of Pixels landed in my hallway in a number of boxes via a nice courier man. Those who pledged on the Kickstarter for The story of the C64 in pixels book will get a copy of the CD for free – it contains 12 new SID tracks in total composed and produced by Sascha Zeidler and Gerard Hultink with mastering by Max Hall and artwork by James Svärd. There are 3 tracks on the album that pay homage to the tracks of some pretty recognisable games – Archon II – Dance Mix is a prime example. The others are original tunes by the guys and are pretty awesome.

The tune below is another, track 10 – Monty Always Keeps on Running

 

 

The artwork for the front, back and CD can be seen below, and is by the well known C64 scene artist James Svärd:

Once all the Kickstarter pledgers get their copy of the CD, book and goodies, there will 500 or so for sale along with the C64 book on the Fusion Retro Books site (this will be in a few weeks time).

    Simply excellent! This is how far you can take both classical SIDs to a new level, and mix the waveforms into new sounds you only wish or could dream of!
    Sometimes your childhood dreams DO come true.

    That is quite excellent and I wish now I’d been a backer 🙁
