Videogames go classical

It’s a well known fact that in Japan videogame soundtracks sell. Really well. Over here in the West there seems to be less interest. Maybe that could all be about to change though. Play! is described as “A Video Game Symphony”. Hmm. So basically we are talking about a full orchestra performing music from various games. Here’s the official blurb;

“Performed by full orchestra and choir, PLAY! A Video Game Symphony features award-winning music from a catalogue of blockbuster video game titles. Outstanding graphics on large screens above the orchestra accompany the scores, highlighting memorable moments from the video games.”

You can hear a little sample of what’s on offer over at their official website.
