(scroll down for links to videos and pix)
I attended the premiere of the C64 orchestra performing classical renditions of the music of Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel. It was a unique and high quality performance. Jeroen Tel and Rob Hubbard attended the concert in person.

The setlist was: (not the playing order)

By Rob Hubbard:
Delta
Commando
Monty on the Run
One Man And His Droid
International Karate


By Jeroen Tel:
Cybernoid II
Hawkeye
Myth
Supremacy


A truly unique experience and unforgettable.
Check out the pictures and the videos of some of the tunes below!

The concert opened with probably Jeroen Tel's best composition: Cybernoid II.
My personal favourite Delta (high score) was beautifully 'translated' and reminded us even more (than the sid) of Philip Glass' Koyaanisqatsi soundtrack. Lovely.
Not the best performance of the night, but the most memorable Rob Hubbard tune, Monty on the Run finished the excellent set. Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel entered the stage and together with the Ricciotti Ensemble got a truly deserved standing ovation from the crowd.

C-men did an excellent job with their 8-bit animation which were projected on a screen behind the orchestra.

Hopefully, this sort of thing will be continued in the future. Imagine Rob Hubbard's "Zoids" performed by a Symphonic Orchestra! It will blow every nerd's socks off!


C64 Orchestra (general info)
A co-production by Micromusic Netherlands and productiehuis Oost-Nederland (ON). For this new production, Micromusic and productiehuis ON combined forces and invited members of the Dutch Ricciotti ensemble. Together with conductor Bas Wiegers they founded the C64 orchestra. This new orchestra focuses their attention on the groundbreaking 80s computer, the Commodore 64. Micromusic and ON also approached two of the most experienced C64-composers of the 1980's, Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel. The C64 orchestra will perform their music, with scoring done by Rob Hubbard himself.
