Computer music album with a selection from different pieces composed by Johann Sebastian Bach and all of them arranged for the ZX Spectrum 128k via software, under BASIC operative system. The source of the music comes from "8-Bit Bach", a software program developed completely by myself for all ZX Spectrum 128k computers and available as a free download archive at my retrogaming blog Program Bytes 48k, and lately on World Of Spectrum website.

UP-TO-DATE (March 7th 2013, 0:48 am)
I've got to rearrange some tracks because their sound wasn't satisfactory to me. They have been deleted from the album playlist but will be again available in short between today and this week-end. Please forgive me for any inconveniences.

NEW UP-TO-DATE (March 7th 2013; 21:56)
New mixes of several tracks have been uploaded and now I think they are quite fine of quality sound.

NEW UP-TO-DATE (July 1st, 2013)
I've decided to remove all tracks that don't belong to the ZX Spectrum released program. Those ones were converted with a tool that didn't make them well. Also, I've deleted from the album downloadable archive both front and back inlays, until I can redo them.

LAST UP-TO-DATE (September 6th, 2013)

New artwork released and now added to the album.

I'm an 'afficionado' of vintage console and computer games. I like music in most of its genres, too, but what I like most is creating it or arranging whatever it makes me feel better in my life. For now, my musical adventures run around 8-bit computers, especially the much beloved ZX Spectrum.

I have other interests in music, too, but for now there's nothing else to say.
