FOR RELEASE DECEMBER 6TH 2013 For more information, contact rob at robbyduguay dot com. Album Title: Robby Duguay's 12GB of Christmas Genre: Video Game Christmas Music (retro/electronic/holiday) Release date: December 6th, 2013 Available on: Bandcamp Twitter Hashtag: #12GBofChristmas About: Your classic video game memories reimagined as Christmas Carols. Some of our generation's fondest memories of Christmas morning are associated with the soundtracks of our favourite classic games. If you ever went outside only to pretend you were still in Ice Land, or marching through snowy mountains on a mech, this album was created with you in mind. Experience a journey through time, with songs in the style of console games ranging from 1985-1999. This album also revives some traditional Christmas Carols we rarely hear anymore, like "O Come O Come Emmanuel," and "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear." The Story: "The 12GB of Christmas was created entirely within the 2 weeks leading up to its release. With the Bit Bazaar Winter Market planning in full swing, I saw all the great things people were preparing for their tables and I wanted to contribute also. It's well known in our community that I love Christmas, and I am a composer for games - so I thought it would be nice to mix those two things. I put together a couple quick demos of Angels we Have Heard in Town and MegaChild, and thought it was worth it to try and make the whole album. I was determined to write 10 tracks, hoped to finish 12, and somehow settled in nicely with 11 tracks in the end." Track listing: 01. MegaChild (02:08) What Child is This 02. Angels we Have Heard in Town (03:11) Angels we Have Heard on High 03. I Saw 8 Bits (00:52) I Saw Three Ships 04. Hark the Herald Angels Train (02:28) Hark the Herald Angels Sing 05.
