Music and memory are inexorably intertwined. Familiar songs and melodies have the power to bring us back to distinct moments in time. Developer Glee-Cheese Studio’s A Musical Story, is, in part, an exploration of that almost mystical power. In it, protagonist Gabriel uses music as his spirit guide, embarking on an exodus through his own personal history, working to piece together the truth of his current reality.
This makes for an unforgettable, 70’s inspired audiovisual experience, featuring a narrative completely devoid of dialogue. A vision this bold practically demands its own vinyl release, and iam8bit was honored to oblige.
This is composers Charles Bardin and Valentin Ducloux’s inimitable soundtrack, presented across two discs and pressed on psychedelic purple and yellow vinyl. We’ve also included a bonus track from friend, Disasterpeace, made especially for this release (and which you won’t find anywhere else — how cool is that!?). The album art from Alexandre Ray, in keeping with Musical Story’s distinctive visual panache, is quite simply a feast for the eyes.
The whole thing comes together to create an unforgettable package. Put it on, dim the lights, close your eyes, and embark on a journey.
