If you enjoy classy renditions of classic video game soundtracks don't miss this recent GDC Summer performance from 88bit, live now on the official GDC YouTube channel!
88bit is the alter ego of Cleveland-based pianist Rob Kovacs, who performs note-for-note piano arrangements of classic video game soundtracks from the original Nintendo Entertainment System.
Kovacs’ performances are unique in that they recreate early electronic music that was never intended to be performed by humans, stretching the limits of traditional piano playing.
