Jan Zottmann (Amiga Immortal) contacted me about aquiring the soundtrack to the amiga game "Cedric and the Lost Sceptre"
(http://hol.abime.net/2958). He is in talks with the original composer Rainer "Brainbug" Nilsen about making an arrangement of the game track, however, Rainer no longer has his original music, and so needs your help.
Jan has made a very generous offer of a prize of ALL THREE IMMORTAL ALBUMS for the soundtrack.

Work continues on the new version of the site. Most of the static content from this site is now on the new site, although structure is not finalised yet.
Although this new page does not see many updates, there have been ongoing changes on the site. For example ExoticA's mirror of the
High Voltage SID Collection has been kept up to date. The latest update brings it to version 45. The collection now contains 32,000 C64 tunes.
The Amiga Demo Scene Reference Manual page had not been updated for some time even though I (BuZz) had been sent new versions to put online. Sorry Zeg! However, a new project replaces this now: The Amiga Demo Scene Online Encyclopedia! The old plain text data has now been turn into a database with an easy to use searchable web interface. You can find this at http://kestra.exotica.org.uk. Thanks to Zeg for his hard work with the data and Andy Silva for the interface.
Of course, the UnExoticA section of the site has been kept up to date. Many new CD32 soundtracks have been added in recent months and the archive is now a whopping 2 Gigabytes in size! Big thanks to XtC for his continued work on this area and to all the contributers who kindly submit music for inclusion.
To finish with, I put up a new logo on the intro page, which was contributed a long long time ago by George Davis. Thanks!
ExoticA has moved. The new address is http://www.exotica.org.uk for the main site and http://se.exotica.org.uk for the mirror (Still hosted on Hangar18).
The main site is now hosted on my own machine with Mythic-Beasts, who are kindly sponsoring the large amount of bandwidth that the site requires. The machine is a little Exotic :-) too as it's a Mac Mini (Running PowerPC Debian). For more information please see the Hosting Page.
You might also be wondering, why has the news not been updated for more than a year! Well, up until the end of last year, my only excuse was laziness and I'm sorry. There have been updates on the site though. The High Voltage SID Collection has been kept up to date, and there has been a lot of updates to the UnExoticA section of the site. This is due to XtC being a far less lazy chap than me (BuZz).
In the last few months I have been less lazy though! We (BuZz, XtC and Kyzer) have been working on a new incarnation of the site. More information will follow soon(ish). As soon as it gets to a beta state we will launch it alongside the current site.
