Gatefold double LP version, featuring a vinyl-only bonus track by Martin Galway (music from Wizball, the game that made you fat in high school). Compilation of music from classic Commodore 64 computer games. The original pieces of music have been remastered for this release. When people talk about "Commodore 64 music," it's easy to forget they're not talking about a musical style: they're talking about a delivery mechanism. What that convenient phrase hides is the sheer amount of originality and creativity that went into creating the music for games on the Commodore 64. Included on this compilation is some of their most celebrated work, including music from games "Arkanoid," "Comic Bakery," "Last Ninja" and "Sanxion." Influence in modern music is widespread. The sub genres of 8-bit, chiptune, gabba; the lo-fi sounds of DJ Scotch Egg, the rapid arpeggios of Rustie, Crystal Castles' warped glitches and even the beats of international pop hits such "TiK ToK" by Ke$ha are all informed by developments made during the early years of home gaming. As relevant as ever, SID Chip Sounds: The Music Of The Commodore 64 is a vital collection for fans of remarkable electronic music, whether retrospective or modernist.
