Electroplankton's lost ancestor (not really)

(via - According to, the Nes Cover project is a series of 16 popular songs remade with a "synthesizer based on the classic nintendo entertainment system's psg audio system".

I assume that they did not use the NES system to actually re-write the songs. However, it makes you wonder how succesful a game Elektroplankton could have been if released back in the NES days (maybe except for the fact that those sounds are regarded as "retro" today, which gives them a little bit of a status).

Additional note: it could be a nice soundtrack for Cory Arcangel's Super Mario Clouds (a NES-based art made with a modified cartridge of Super Mario where only the clouds are displayed against a blue sky).
