    Link: Commodore 64 Orchestra - The C64 orchestra is reviving, in classical form, the music from classic Commodore 64 games from the 1980s.

    Never would`ve thought the crappy C64 music would ever be played by an orchestra.

    If I hadn`t known that it was from the C64, I would have thought the beginning was from some 1700s composer.

    Well at least someone found something useful to do with the Commodore 64. I still preferred the Atari 800. Wrote my very first program on an Atari, were as the C64 was a piece of junk. }-)

    Nice, but guys and gals, anyone who likes this should check out Machinae Supremacy, they combine an old C64 SSID music chip with some really good rock to create GREAT music! =)

    LOL this is even more impressive given that the C64 had no real sound support built in - to even produce a beep you had to POKE about 15 memory locations in machine code. Sound was really slow to take off on the C64, but the software cracking teams produced the best music by far off it, "back in the day".

    I had the privelege of owning a C-64 when I was younger, the games were fantastic, and I can still remember the music. Captain Blood was my favorite game, I wish I could find a copy.
