Musician Unveils 8-Bit Cover Of ‘Reba’ By Phish
Jam titans Phish unveiled the beloved composition “Reba” in 1989, during the heyday of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The NES, other video game systems and many computers of the time used 8-bit music for the soundtrack of games and in more recent years composers have intentionally emulated that classic sound for new compositions. Musician Max Demski has shared a chiptune, aka 8-bit, version of “Reba” that can be streamed below.
Demski focused on the composed sections of “Reba,” which Phish originally recorded for their 1990 studio album, Lawn Boy. While the jam section wasn’t included, Max mentions in the video’s description that, “I may possibly consider adding the jam section at some point if I can find the time and the patience!” Here’s the version of “Reba” Max Demski recently shared:
