SAVIORS OF THE VIDEO GAME MUSIC! 


Welcome to the world of a genre of music that you might not realize exists.
Featured on this compilation are 27 of today?s top-of-the-minute artists who
utilize, in one way or another, a wide variety of video game systems and
computers to create everything from slammin? electro-pop to spooky
experimental pieces to all-out gabber-techno chaos. Even a 3-piece rock band
appears on this disc, recreating compositions of one of the greatest and
most influential video games of all time! You might not notice, but by the
time this epic CD is finished, you?ve basically heard the musical history
and evolution of the home video game console. Sources range from the Atari
2600 to the Turbograffix 16 to the Commodore 64 to the many music programs
of the Game Boy, and even to the Speak & Spell! 


Choosing to avoid the cheesy ?orchestral soundtracks? that accompany the
home video games of the 21st century and instead to emphasize the nostalgia
of the 80?s and early 90?s styles of rocking, beat-oriented ?muzaks? that
almost everybody involved with this project has grown up with, the VGM MIX
TAPE #8 CD has been tightly crafted into a highly accessable and immensely
exciting compilation that will engage the interests of both electronic and
rock music fans AND video game enthusiasts alike. 

$10 post-paid in the U.S. Canadaian residents add $3. Europe and beyond add
$5. 

Album cover will be in the "photos" section of this newsgroup. A track or 2
will be in the "files" section of this newsgroup.
