Perfect Dark

Episode 8

4 months ago

[Episode 8] This month barSILENCE lands in the futuristic streets of 2023 to listen to the ambitious cyberpunk-influenced soundtrack of Perfect Dark on the Nintendo 64. We’re hacking into 15 of the best moody, bassy, and sci-fi soundscapes from Rare's greatest composers, Grant Kirkhope, Graeme Norgate, and David Clynick.

In the wise words of Daniel Carrington, "Act your age, Joanna!"
