two hobbies meet in a bar....

If you're into retro game music, or digital music, maybe you'll enjoy this (or not)!

It's the first time I've married two personal interests like this - music and gaming.   The last few months I've gotten back into composing/singing, (it comes and goes, as it has most of my life).   I'm glad to feel creative musically, since my book writing has suffered the last months (lots of reasons).

Anyway, while I'm always working on originals, my boyfriend likes to throw old 8 and 16 bit tracks to me to see what I come up with.

(Takes me a few weeks, since I tend to work on 3-4 things at once.)

Anyway, this is my take on the Batman NES Stage 1 8-bit theme, "Streets of Desolation".

I've made quite a few changes - slower tempo, different key, and added an original bridge. While I kept the original melody and bassline pretty much throughout, I also added countermelodies and just basically had fun making it into something that I felt paid tribute to the original, while making it new again.  If you like it, there's a higher quality audio version on Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/heavymetalteacu…








For comparison,  here's a link to the original, from Sunsoft's 1989 game:

My name is Kris. Chances are, I'm caffeinated. Work/create/read/write/compose/game/research/sleep, rinse and repeat.

I dream about soundtracks, playthroughs and Intel pixies.

thanks for watching - do now also watching you !!!
and it's cool that's you think so or too much -
the most people do this not and that's the reason
for so much trouble and misunderstanding
around the world. and only people like you - they
think so much - can change this.
so keep up thinking !!!
even if it is not the easiest way...
cool - you read the same books and writers as I !
I think Terry Pratchett is the best one - he has the
darkest humor and sarcasm I ever read...

Sorry for being so late in responding! You're very welcome.  (And yes, I think Pratchett is awesome! I love how he repaints reality and modern issues into the Discworld. )  =)
