'Blast' from the past...

Postby Mister Al » Sun Aug 01, 2004 12:09 am

Hello people<br>
<br>
<br>
I hope you don't mind me taking up a small amount of message board space to express my surprise at what I've just seen.<br>
<br>
I wrote a tune (during a particularly boring A-level Chemistry lesson, as I recall) which was eventually used in a BBC Micro game called 'Blast'.<br>
<br>
Now, fifteen years later, I am directed by a retro-gaming friend to the 'Sound & Music' page of this very site because they spotted my name there.<br>
<br>
Not only has somebody gone to the bother of listing my tiny contribution to the world of computer gaming (a contribution that I must admit I had pretty much forgotten all about in the intervening years) on a web site, they have even gone so far as to record it and turn it into an MP3!<br>
<br>
To whoever is responsible for this strange act, I thank you. You have made my day.<br>
<br>
<br>
Al Theobald<br>
(composer of 'The Yeti', theme tune to 'Blast')<br>

(Actually, I'd forgotten just how bad the 'solo' section of the song, just after the key change sounded...) <p></p><i></i>
