Over the course of a month, the uncle painstakingly learned and recorded the entire soundtrack from Mega Man 2 as a piano lullaby, including all eight robot bosses and Dr. Wily’s famous theme.
His brother was overwhelmed with the gift, and posted online to share with the rest of the world. It went viral, and shortly thereafter 8-Bit Baby was born.
Since then, they’ve recorded two more full-length albums and a handful of singles, with the uncle recording the music and his brother designing the album covers. All tracks are recorded on a Yahama digital piano without any MIDI or note editing, keeping the imperfections of the performance for a more authentic sound. All tracks are legally licensed through Soundrop.
