Danny Wolfers has composed an entire soundtrack to a fan-made Commodore 64 video game.
Loch Ness is not a vintage Commodore 64 treasure: it's actually a game made by a Legowelt fan—more precisely, the winner of a competition hosted by the Dutchman, where he invited fans to make their own C64 game and promised to score the winning entry himself. Back in January, the prolific producer uploaded a nine-minute clip of the soundtrack on his SoundCloud page. Now, he's released the entire nine-track album for free via his website.
According to the man himself, Loch Ness was "composed and recorded on a snowy winter evening with a bunch of Commodore 64s, using its mighty MOS SID chip going trough [sic] a barrage of analog delays, tandy radioshack mixers and electromagnetic static that's emitted by the rubbing of Legowelt's fleece sweaters and silk blouses straight onto dusty cassette tape." The music on the soundtrack largely consists of mood-setting ambient pieces rather than Wolfers' usual house, techno and electro.
The collection is available for free download on the Legowelt website.
