Remute turned the clock back in the history of gaming and music, to a time when 8MB of storage space for game systems was considered a lot of space. He’s now releasing an album called R64, which can be played on the Nintendo 64. The music is generated in real time using the 8MB of storage available on the N64.
Rasky, the developer of the Nintendo 64’s sound engine and player-GUI, collaborated with the German DJ on the project. With Remute’s music playing in the background, Rasky created an entirely new 3D visual experience that allows the user to fly like Lawnmower Man.
Pre-orders for R64, which is scheduled to be released on March 25th, 2022, are now being accepted on Remute’s Bandcamp page. The band will also release a limited edition Plus Edition 7″ vinyl that will include two special versions of album cuts “Superposition” and “Tradition Und Moderne,” in addition to an exclusive track titled “Tradition and Superposition.”
Remute is all too familiar with the process of repurposing his music for old video game consoles. Last fall, he released the Living Electronics album as a Game Boy cartridge. His 2019 album Technoptimistic was released on the Mega Drive, and his 2020 game The Cult Of Remute was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
R64 is the third installment in a trilogy. Both Unity for the Game Boy Advance and Generations for the Sega Dreamcast are scheduled to be released in the second half of 2022.
The techno titans come together for one hell of a project.
