In 1986, when Germany lost to Argentina in the football match, Huelsbeck won the first place in a 64’er Magazine contest at the age of 18.

Shortly thereafter, Chris began take care of the good tone at Rainbow Arts. Katakis and The Great Giana Sisters are now classics in the C64 game library. Also on the Commodore Amiga, Huelsbeck left traces. His multi-voice tracks for Turrican are among the best soundtracks written for home computers.

50 Shades of Chris

Today, Chris is one of the most recognizable faces in the retrocomputing scene and is often on tour. His Homebase is now in the USA, but he is also a lot in Europe.

So the clubs Digital Retro Park and For Amusement Only managed to invite Chris to the Flipper and Arcade Museum after the Amiga 32 event in Neuss.

In the foyer of the museum there will be a talk round with Chris Hülsbeck. When it comes to coffee and cake, it is more comfortable.

The whole thing is moderated by Joerg Droege from Sceneworld Magazine.

In addition, there will be a special exhibition on the 35th birthday of the Commodore 64 in the museum’s exhibition space. On the displayed devices, of course, games will run on the day when Chris composed the music.

The entrance to the talk and the special exhibition “C64” is free.

However, if you would like to play on the exhibited equipment before or after the talk in the exhibition room of the Flipper and Arcade Museum, we ask for a fee of 10 EUR.
