Pink Floyd goes 8bit

March 27, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Pterodactyl Squad – a video game music netlabel – has released The Dark Side of the Moon – The 8-bit Album.

38 years ago today Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon was released in the UK, and Pterodactyl Squad are marking the date with their 30th release, The Dark Side of the Moon – The 8-bit Album.

After the success of Weezer – The 8-bit Album in 2009, the Squad assembled an “all-star cast of chiptune talent” to create a VGM-inspired tribute to 1973′s, The Dark Side of the Moon. All 9 tracks have been filtered through an 8-bit lens, and while each artist brings a different sound and creative angle to each track, the album flows seamlessly together, just like the original.

Pterodactyl Squad says:

Although attempted numerous times before, Pterodactyl Squad have finally done the original album justice with the definitive 8-bit interpretation of Pink Floyd’s progressive rock classic.

Produced as an 8-bit mirror of the original, the music on this release was created using sounds from various old games consoles including the Sega Mega Drive and Nintendo Game Boy.

Featuring tracks from Bit_Rat, EvilWezil, khades, Rabato, sergeeo, Videogame Orchestra, Jason Vincion, echosignal and Brad Smith and Temp Sound Solutions, the album is free to download.
