Next week, a bunch of friendly and talented people will begin a frenzied week-long dash to create a game for the second Speccy Jam. It’s going to be tremendous fun. You REALLY should take a look.
Now, as you are probably aware, there is nothing I love more than the sights, sounds and (worryingly) smell of a Spectrum. I was so inspired by the amazing efforts last year that I immediately fired up Reaper and began working on a new album of glorious Speccy music (Not that it takes much to encourage me to start writing music for the AY chip, of course.)
It has been a fun ride, and happily that album is now finished and finalised. I’m just waiting for the final Cover Art to come through (designed by the lovely FabianaGraphics.) The album is 8 tracks/24 minutes long, and should be ready for purchasing/streaming this time next week (from Bandcamp, Itunes, Amazon, Google, Spotify, Deezer and (of course) my own store.) I hope any Speccy Jammers reading this find it an inspirational!
Until then, here’s a little sample to give you a taste . . .
