To celebrate Psygnosis’ 25th (Silver) Anniversary in 2010, Wright will be showcasing his archive of over 70 computer music files from Psygnosis Games such as “Shadow of the Beast II”, “Agony”, “Lemmings” and “Awesome” and asking the public to vote on which tracks should receive the 2010 remix treatment.
Wright says, “Psygnosis was a massive part of my life. It’s where I began in the industry, and to honour them in their Silver Anniversary year I thought it would be a fitting tribute to remix some selected songs from my archives. All these tracks were written on a Commodore AMIGA using very little memory, and only 3 or 4 channels. It was quite a challenge back then to create full sounding music within such tiny constraints. Taking these old songs and re-working them into fully fledged orchestral or electronic tracks will be a great project. I can’t wait to see which tracks people choose!”
