I'm the arranger behind 'Kanto Symphony,' a 78-minute orchestral tribute to the classic 8-bit music of Pokémon Red and Blue. AMA
My name is Skotein AKA Braxton B., and I'm the creator of a project called Pokémon Reorchestrated (http://www.pokemonsymphony.com/). I recently released a 35-track album of orchestral music from Pokémon Red and Blue called 'Kanto Symphony,' now available on iTunes and Joypad Records (http://www.joypadrecords.com/).

The album is fully licensed by Joypad Records, a record label based in San Francisco that deals with copyright clearance and legally licensing video game covers such as the ultra-popular Lindsey Stirling & Peter Hollens' cover of 'Skyrim', among others: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSLPH9d-jsI
I've been getting a lot of questions about the album, so let's get down and geeky!
EDIT: The questions have been simmering down a bit, so I think I'll call it a night. I'll be around tomorrow afternoon PST if anyone else has more questions, though! Sleep tight, all.
EDIT 2: All right, I think that concludes this AMA. Thank you, everyone, for all of your awesome questions and checking out the album! Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some music midterms to study for. @[email protected];
