Run 10: The Commodore 64 music CD

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of its release, a recent upsurge in the fascination with the Commodore 64 (not just as a retro game computer) has fueled compelling interest for the C64 as an instrument in the dance-scene. Micromusic and productiehuis ON have combined forces and invited members of the Dutch Ricciotti ensemble. Together with conductor Bas Wiegers they have founded the C64 Orchestra, that focused its on the music heard on the C64. For this project Micromusic and ON approached two of the most experienced C64-composers of the 1980s namely, Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel. Run 10 finds the C64 Orchestra performing their music, with scoring done by Rob Hubbard. This 2 disc set is packaged in a replica of the original Commodore floppy case. The first disc contains the orchestral versions of the original tunes; the second disc contains the original game tunes themselves, plus interviews with Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel and more for C-64 aficionados.
