Super Special Bonus World

String Orchestra

Playing some recent ‘run and jump’ platform games brought back fond memories of older 16-bit music. This prompted me to write a composition with reference to and inspiration from my early video game history. The piece itself is similar in structure to a rondo, with a principal theme which develops and reoccurs in different moods and forms.

February 2014.
