07/09/2008: SWITCHED ON GAMEBOY 2 by PHARMACOM!
ReceptorsMusic and WebLabel Ops continues to blur the musical decades, but now we'll smear
shattered bits across the centuries as the 8Bit Ops tentacle ensnares another German maestro
gameboy operator in the person of Sascha Müller aka PHARMACOM! His "SWITCHED ON GAMEBOY 1"
release from 2005 delighted us lifelong fans of electronically created classical music by
recreating JS Bach's 'greatest hits' a la Wendy Carlos on GAMEBOY synth!
I remember the day my older brother Ron brought home Walter Carlos' soundtrack to "A Clockwork
Orange", launching a child's keen, albeit naive interest in classical and electronic music. With that album
and of course the earlier and timeless "Switched On Bach", the pinnacle of the style seemed to
have already been reached , with a few more interesting classical portrayals by the likes of
Now, over 30 years later PHARMACOM rekindles our childish affection for classical music and
it's cast of dramatic characters with his "SWITCHED ON GAMEBOY 2- KLASSIKS!", a veritable
'their greatest hits' of Beethoven, Hayd, Lizt, Chopin, Schubert and more, performed
entirely on the GameBoy Classic synthesiser!
ReceptorsMusic is proud for this to be our 3rd weblabel
Thank the internet gods for providing such a work of beauty for FREE! and then thank the
illustrious Pharmacom and his fellow geniuses from across the ages.
As a bonus, SWITCHED ON GAMEBOY 1 (selected works of JS Bach) is also available below:
