Atari Classical Medley

Martine Mussies

Martine Mussies is a PhD candidate at Utrecht University, writing her thesis about the Cyborg Mermaid. Besides her research, Martine is a professional musician and an avid retro gamer. She combines her interests by creating what she calls ‘auti-ethnograhies’ – writings, artworks and musics about her personal experiences as an Aspergirl. Her love and nostalgia for the Atari are expressed by creating art based on its screenshots, for example in LEGO and Ministeck, as well as classical piano versions of its game musics, which have been performed at different concerts in the Netherlands and abroad. For Atari Women, Martine recorded a classical medley on piano of three Atari musics composed by Patricia Goodson: Desert Falcon, Junior PacMan and Food Fight
