ÁROK/SLAY Radio remix compo

07/08/2020

REMIX COMPO - Árok party is an annual 8-bit demoscene event in Hungary, which, due to the unfortunate COVID situation won't happen this year.
Árok is (in)famous for its friendly atmosphere and its REMIX COMPETITION - no other 8-bit demoscene event had ever such a compo!
We miss the event so much that we want to honor it with organizing an online version of the unique challenge.

Remembered & Remastered Volume 2: Richard Joseph

01/08/2020

Prior to writing music for the games industry Richard was an active musician/singer. He joined the the prog rock group CMU on their second album before joining Jazz funk band Shakatak. He also released a solo single for EMI. It wasn't til 1986 when he replied to an advert from Palace Software seeking a musician for their games in the now defunct Melody Maker

 

I’d just spent a year composing about 100 tunes on a Yamaha CX5 music computer (including the ‘famous’ Robocod one), and had tinkered with a Spectrum so it wasn’t that hard to convince Palace. - Richard Joseph

 

Sadly Richard passed away in March 2007 and through the eyes of the remixer we remember him and his work on both the C64 and the Amiga home computers.
