Best known as the guitarist for Toronto-based electro-rockers The Rabid Whole, George V. Radutu is pleased to unveil his new fan audio project RADUTRON. Its first release is titled …Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying, And Do Covers and features 8 cover songs inspired by both artist and video game composers from the last 60+ years. This EP will be available in early 2012 as a free download.
The inspiration for the project came from Radutu’s love of video game soundtracks. “I wanted to create my own versions of these popular, and underground tunes that have been soundtracks to my escapism over these many years. I’m certain that my fellow gamers, and music lovers will enjoy these.”
The cover art for …Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying, And Do Covers was created by Charlotte Solieh. Radutu found her work online and knew she would be perfect for the vibe he sought to create. “I stumbled-upon Charlotte’s work online and was blown away by it. Its a plus that she is also a gamer. She knows how to re-create a scene using those oh-so-fine brush strokes.”
The digital-only package will include a PDF booklet documenting the passion behind the production.
True to the spirit of game production, tracks on the EP were beta-tested.
…Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Do Covers will be available for PC/Mac, PS3, XBOX 360, iOS, and any other device that plays mp3s.
