A great "tour de force" transfering all wonderful music of Mike Oldfield's second LP into a 3-channel home computer. The full program was developed in 2011, for about more than a month and a half, without the aid of any sheet music or book score (it doesn't exist, though), just by listening the record so many times.

The complete ZX Spectrum program can be found at World Of Spectrum archive for free.
