2013 marks 35 years of video game music (Space Invaders, released in 1978, was the first game to feature a continuous soundtrack). Ithaca Audio and I took this opportunity to take a look back at some of our favourite examples of video game music and together we built a 19 track mashup, combining them with some other tracks we love.
The computer game music featured in the track varies from some of the original 8-bit tracks from the Atari, GameBoy, through to 1990s N64 and PS1 classics, right up to modern day symphonic epics that accompany some of today’s blockbuster games.
The mashup was performed live by Chris Evans-Roberts (from Ithaca Audio) on a series of re-wired game controllers. These were re-configured to control the mashup content that I helped create and this allowed for a really versatile performance.
