Ode to the Amiga time, I invite you to discover the OST I’ve written for Powerglove (by Lazycow). The game from Matthias Bock will be soon available on the mythic 90s computer !
During you’re playing with the Hero and his powerglove to save our earth, i’ve choose to adapt my original C64 theme searching inspiration from the best musical of that early 90s period : Thomas Petersen ‘Laxity’ & Kim Christensen (DNA Warrior), Stéphane Picq (Dune), Tim & Lee Wright (Shadow of the Beast 2), Olof Gustafsson (Pinball Fantasies), Allister Brimble (Project X), Chris Huelsbeck (Grand Monster Slam), Robert A. Allen (Jazz Jack Rabbit), Koji Kondo (Super Mario Bros.), Martin Galway (Comic Bakery) or Yuzo Koshiro (Street of Rage).
Some words about this great adventure i’ve made last autumn. My bros. Pype show me a game currently developped on the C64, a new version of the excellent Pharaoh’s Curse, i loved to play 30 years ago. After some time i had contact Lazycow, the developper to propose music for his game.
In fact, he was working on another game Powerglove, using the same engine for the Commodore 64 ! Wouw, great mission ! For sure musics i’ve made 20 years ago on my commodre was not so kwel then what Chris Huelsbeck, Rob Hubbard et autres Jeroen Tel have made… Should i able to do some SID, the musical standard on the C64 !?
So i’ve worked with Goat Tracker. Black and basic interface but close to what i used during the MS-DOS time with Scream Tracker… I should learn how it works, created subtune and also made my own sound effect.
I finally quickly find how to do good stuff with informations from Matthias Bock. I would like to have an oppressing ambient but also something that the player would like to hear more. That was something incredible at that time on the C64. I remember i loop play to DNA Warrior just to listen to the music !
So i let you discover PowerGlove…
1. download the free image of the game (préférez la version “fix”)
2. if needed let it run on an emulation like CCS64
