Dark Side of the Moon Played on a NES

Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon [http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Side-Moon-Pink-Floyd/dp/B000002U82/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1278699846&sr=1-1] has been given the eight bit treatment, rendering it into a NES masterpiece.


Despite all we know about science and the way things work, there are still many questions we are yet to answer: Where did we come from, why are we here, and, possibly most importantly, what would Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon sound like if it had been played on a NES?

Fortunately, that last question has finally been answered, as game developer Brad Smith has remade one of the greatest rock albums of all time using only the NES's audio hardware. The above video is just one of six, and the rest can be found here [http://rainwarrior.thenoos.net/music/moon8.html].

Holy shit. Awesome.

Brain Damage is spot on. Sadly the transition to Eclipse is off haha. Nice effort.

That was not easy on the ears. Also, is there a difference between general MIDIs and 8-bit? I've heard some really well done MIDIs of classic rock that blow this away.

Huge difference. Most 8 bits have only 3 or 4 channels. Try some SIDs(8 bit C64) out, then upgrade to OGGs(Amiga 16 bit).

This is it done in 8bit rather than with NES software.

I was expecting that song from Mulan to play. I leave disappointed.

The words "Dark Side of the Moon" are in this song. Toward the end.

Never liked PF, never owned an NES. Not interested...Good job, though.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out!


I get it, it is in the chorus of the Mulan song, yeah? I guess that makes sense.

[small]Did I just pull a sour patch kids commercial? I'm going with that theory, otherwise I'm bi-polar or something...[/small]

OT: That's pretty awesome. When is the LP coming out?

I haven't really had much experience with 8-bit games myself, but some of the sound effects from about 5:45 reminded me of the music in Yahtzee Chzo Mythos (Trilby) series. Anyways, currently downloading the whole 8-bit album. Looking forward to hearing the rest!

I think the planned next redesign involves stabbing viewers in the eyes with those flaming dicks, really. They just can't leave well enough alone.

Huh? Is Youtube working for any of you guys? I just tried to open it, and it won't work. I think the servers are down.

And The Great Gig in the Sky done as a chiptune is pure awesomeness.

EDIT: Whoops. Never mind. Whatever was wrong seems to be fixed now.

Also, I hope this guy does Wish You Were Here next. I'd love to hear Have a Cigar done as a Chiptune.
