Song Cycle: The History of Video Games (Karaoke Accompaniment)

SONG CYCLE: The History of Video Games takes you on a musical journey through iconic moments in video game history!

Each track comes from a well-loved video game, including PONG, Tetris, Super Mario Bros., World of Warcraft, BioShock, Pokémon, Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Angry Birds, UNDERTALE, and Grim Fandango, among others. Members of the Materia Collective have collaborated to write original lyrics and arrange the source material for live performance by a solo vocalist and piano accompaniment.

This is the "karaoke" version featuring solo-piano versions of songs on the primary SONG CYCLE album.

Four songs are also available as professionally engraved sheet music, with more to follow. Both albums and all sheet music available for purchase are fully licensed.

Materia Collective is excited to offer sheet music of select tracks for sale! All editions engraved by Thomas Kresge.
