Fans of Metroid and Blake Robinson can look forward to March 19th — that is when Synthetic Orchestra will release Super Metroid Symphony.
For those of you not familiar with Symphonic Orchestra.
The Synthetic Orchestra isÂ Blake RobinsonÂ and his collection of ultra-realistic sample libraries and software. Born in London, England, Blake Robinson has been obsessed with computer generated music from a young age. From his humble roots as a kid hacking away atÂ ProtrackerÂ on hisÂ Atari ST, Blake now utilises a top-of-the-range workstation to create epic orchestral pieces and lush symphonic soundtracks from the comfort of his home.
This time, Blake is orchestrating music from the Super Nintendo gameÂ Super Metroid,Â composed by Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano.
ThaSauce Network is excited to announce a milestone event in our community’s history — the 400th round of One Hour Compo, hosted by starla. Compos (short for “composition competitions”) are competitions for musicians who want to “think outside the box” and challenge themselves.
Here’s how it works. One Hour Compo happens every Thursday at 9PM EST. Every week, a new theme is announced, and participants are encouraged to remix a track based on their interpretation of the theme. They are given one hour to create, complete, and submit their tracks — after that, submissions are off to voting! The event ends with a listening party featuring the week’s top submissions.
The 400th compo round will happen on June 9th at 9pm EST, and you can RSVP to the Facebook event to stay updated. Musicians of all skill levels are invited to join in. There is no requirements for OHC, other than wanting to participate and have a good time creating good music. We encourage everyone to join, and help us make the 4ooth one a compo to remember!

Recently, Charlie Koch — known to us as Cerrax — suffered a personal tragedy. A fire destroyed his apartment, destroying his and his sister’s personal belongings. This tragedy has hit them terribly, both emotionally and financially.
We would like to take a moment to ask the community to come together to help out. A Facebook page and Paypal fundraiser have been set up, to help Cerrax and his sister save up the money needed to replace their belongings.
Anything you can contribute with will help — and will be appreciated.
