Some complete genius has made retro video game versions of your favourite composers

Do you want to see and hear all your favourite composers in all their supremely pixellated and bleepy glory?

Debussy

Mmm, pentatonic scales sound even better in MIDI.

 

Brahms

So stately. So solemn. So pixellated.

 

Bach

You can’t go retro without visiting the Baroque period. This is some heavy fugue action.

 

Scriabin

One from left-field, obviously. Feeling the purple suit and doomy lower piano noises.

 

And a Schönberg string quartet

The whole gang get involved!
