Project Hubbard Launches On Kickstarter

17,073 views 1 comments

If you’re a fan of Rob Hubbard, one of the most celebrated composers of videogame music, you’ll be interested to know that a major Kickstarter project has launched to celebrate his past work and get him back into the studio – and it’s going very well, with over £20,000 of the £50,000 goal already raised.

The project is comprised of a number of distinct components: firstly, a book called Rob Hubbard: The Official Reference, a 300 page hardback edition covering his music, the technology used in creating it and his influence within the gaming world. Then there are two musical products: Project Hubbard – Standard, which includes three albums (Hubbard ’80, Alt-SIDs and The Archive), and Project Hubbard – Deluxe, which includes all of the standard edition items plus four remix albums (with two more available as stretch goals) and other bonuses. Then there’s a new C64 cartridge game called Rob’s Life, too.

Pledges start from £21 for a digital copy of the book, and stretch goals include a London Symphony Orchestra performance of Rob’s music at the Barbican, extra book pages and further remixes.
