Here's where the Symphony 64 project ultimately ends up: with hopefully two concerts with Rob, the composers and the London Symphony Orchestra in 2019, made possible by this forthcoming Kickstarter.

Apologies to S64 backers for diverting to this project temporarily, but I will be back to orchestrating (my first love, really) as soon as I can, this time with two concerts on the horizon!

There will be some more orchestral loveliness from Rob on this project too, where he re-orchestrates some of his old pieces (not C64).

Big Band Bacon, stretch disk for the Back in Time Symphonic/Symphony 64 project is released digitally! It will be in the box set when that's released.

10 tracks... of rollicking SID remixes from the master of big band, Uncle "And The" Bacon Ulf Ørnodd Langsrud.

Well, 9 tracks of rollicking, and one track of smoky love theme, to be fair.

Free to all Symphony 64 backers, and is also instantly downloadable for pre-ordererers on C64Audio.com.

Album about 70% complete on the base tracks, then orchestra has to be put in, but that process should benefit from all the work put into Symphony 64.

Sample includes snippets of Monty on the Run, Auf Monty, Storm Warrior, Commando and more.

Now in stereo, baby!

Come to this and I can give you a preview in person of how Symphony 64 is getting on (we will be premiering at least two brand new Rob Hubbard orchestrations, and a load of mine).

Good luck to Nathan McCree. Take it from me, orchestras are REALLY expensive. And if you record here in the UK, even more so.

I would just like to apologise to Cello players for mine/Peter's Aztec Challenge orchestration... but you're really the only guys who can do THAT bassline in the right range and make it sound meaty. So, yeah, um, sorry

Really glad to announce we're going to have a live concert of Tale of a Forest and Tale of a Lake on November 11th at the Espoo Metro Areena. We'll have a huge ...screen with a new version of the films, with a symphony orchestra provided by the Vantaa Pops, 40-voice choir and of course the amazing Johanna Kurkela performing live! Ticket sales start on May 4th. (press release linked below is in Finnish) I'm pretty excited about this one, as I'm sure you can guess!

All,

It's been drawn to my attention that I should clarify something: the previews released so far were not the final sounds: they're the intermediate step in a process.

The second preview had much better sounds than the first preview (different playback engine), but of course it didn't cross that bridge to "sound like real orchestra" for some listeners.

...

The main final recordings are being done by Slaygon with the best sample libraries in the world: libraries which pass every John Williams test you can throw at them, mostly provided by the nice people at Orchestral Tools.

So, the next set of audio from the project you hear will be using the finest samples in the world.

Chris
