Oldschool reEducated

Here's another piece of music for you. It's called Oldschool reEducated and was created for the Streaming Music Compo at the Breakpoint 2008 demoscene party which I attended last week with the guys from my demo group, fractal MiND.

Unfortunately, the song didn't make it through the pre-selection and thus never officially saw the light of day until now. As I learned later, there were almost 60 entries for the competition of which only 17 were played. Maybe I was just unlucky, but I had the feeling that the ones that were selected sounded rather similar to each other and that the competition lacked variety; an opinion that was supported by several other party guests I talked to. As you will surely notice when you play the song, it was my main intention to deliver an entry with a different style: It features a SID chip, an electric guitar, and lots of melody.

You can download it here or on the music page. Since the song quotes material from various other sources (a list can be found here) I'm putting it under a CreativeCommons-by-nc-sa 3.0 license which prohibits commercial use of this work.

I hope you like it!
