About:
A third compilation of Videogame Christmas music! Experience the joy of the sound of Christmas morning and classic games. Discover timeless Christmas carols reimagined as tunes from some of your favourite titles from 1985-1999. Sounds from 8-bit consoles and all the way up to N64 and PS1, playing standards like “O Holy Night,” and “I heard the bells on Christmas day” – in ways you’ve never imagined!

The Story:
“Since I love Christmas and games so much, it’s no wonder that here we are again for the third year in a row. What better way to enjoy the season than to combine two of my favourite things? Now that I’ve successfully arranged 36 tracks across these 3 albums, I can definitely say I was scraping the bottom of the barrel this year for carols in the public domain. A highlight for me is that I finally mustered up the courage to arrange ‘O Holy Night’ – and I feel that doing it in the style of Aerith’s theme (another song with some emotional attachments) was a good match. On the technical/production side of things I made good use of some new equipment this year: I now have the same synth that they sampled from I am interested in continuing to produce these albums in the future, but it looks like I’ll have to partner with Loudr.fm to get the rights to some more modern Christmas tunes. I’m dreaming of Volume 4 and beyond (also: sugarplums)!”
