From £15.00

Hull College presents a celebration of the forgotten golden age of British computing genius with the world premiere of 8-Bit Symphony: 90+ epic minutes of game music from the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC with the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra. Lovingly re-orchestrated in the spirit of the original, with 5 orchestrated by the legendary Rob Hubbard himself, 8-bit has never sounded so joyful, nor so epic. Covering genres from Kung-Fu Movies to 80's epic Sci-fi to John Williams-esque romps, it's like discovering a world of lost 80's film soundtracks: the best melodies, and the biggest sound... to honour much-overlooked musical genius.
