Orlando & Tomaga – Play Time: Music for Video GamesPosted: July 6, 2015
Wide eyed interpretations of video game music reflected in library music tropicalia and the kind of vintage, hauntology-infected electronics that would make Delia Derbyshire proud. The London imprint RAM Tapes offers an expansive vision of those early console ages with a rich collection of electronic crossovers by Orlando & Tomaga. The somewhat exotic twist on the cassette gives a sun-kissed vision of 70’s utopia, at least as envisioned by video game designers and industrial designers. Analog electronics stuck somewhere between Harmonia and Throbbing Gristle. An interesting curio, covered with memory dust. Recommended!
