Commodore Amiga & CD32 Commemorative Music Compilation CD 'Paula Agnus Denise' Due For May Release

Amiga-Commodore-CD32-Commemorative-Music-Compilation-CD-Paula-Agnus-Denise-Due-For-May-ReleaseThe Amiga's on-board sound chip produced some of the most memorable audio ever heard from gaming hardware to date. While these compositions created on the Amiga's 'Paula' chip still hold up today, several composers have returned to rearrange their original work in the new 'Paula Agnus Denise' compilation CD.

Who might these alluring women be that this CD is set to be named after I heard you ask? Well, the earliest Commodore Amiga systems featured a custom set of chips within known as The Original Chip Set (OCS). This trio of chips not only defined the Amiga's graphics and sound capabilities, but were named Paula, Agnus, and Denise.

Creations from notable Amiga musicians such as Chris Huelsbeck, Tim Wright, Allister Brimble, David Whittaker and Barry Leitch are all set to be re-imagined with a more modern approach. These remixes and rearrangements will consist of classics found in games including Shadow of the Beast, Alien Breed, Speedball 2, Turrican 2 and Pinball Dreams.

Given that Huelsbeck, Wright and Brimble are making an apperance on this upcoming CD, we can only presume that the tracks they are sharing will be small snippets from their soon to be released epics - The Amiga Works, Strix Memoria and the Turrican Soundtrack Anthology.
