I've made a newssubmit for this remake yesterday, but for some reason it hasn't shown up yet.

Anyway, since I'm not competing in the Italo challenge, because I don't have a working MSX (and i hate composing in an emulator, I've tried) Smile I decided to make a 'normal' remake of an old composition of mine in Italo style (Solitary Void, it's on either Cybersound or The Last Dimension ... I don't remember LOL)

here's the download link:
www.spiresound.nl/music/Bart_Roijmans_Solitary_Void.mp3

Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

PS: I believe the style is officially called 'Spacesynth' but that's closely related to Italo :)

I was never into the MSX demoscene/musicdiskscene, so I've never heard the original.
This is a very good song, definitely a keeper Big smile

seems there's nothing there if I click the link Sad
does anyone have it ?
Indeed, spacesynth is a branched off thing from italo (oooo we love subgenres Tongue)
Less disco, more space sounds and arpeggios.
I think bands like hipnosis,cyberpeople and our own laserdance are the most wellknown.

I took it off, as the thread seemed dead Tongue ... No, it's still on my website though... but under a different link:

www.spiresound.nl/mp3s/solitary_void.mp3

(or selectable in the mp3-player on the frontpage of www.spiresound.nl )

hahah wow, that's awesome !!! you got the sound all right ^_^
even more surprisingly is how close these things come to the dutch trance
music these days... I wonder if there is a connection between the two
somehow... I know that michiel van der kuy (of laserdance) makes trance
music now, and that he's behind "james brown is dead" (as LA style)...

anyway, thumbs up sir !

well thank you ^_^ ... I've got an MP3 CD full of Laserdance tracks in my car as we speak Smile ... only downside is that he seems to use the same 'instrument bank' for every single song he ever made LOL ... but no complaints about that, it's still awesome Smile

btw, I don't think i have the original of Solitary Void as MP3... i have the kss file at home though... i could mail it to you later when I'm @ home
