News: All the greatest video game music ever, performed by a real orchestra!



video game composers, Tommy Tallarico (Advent Rising, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Earthworm Jim) and Jack Wall (Jade Empire, Myst III: Exile, Splinter Cell) have announced that they will be bringing the amazing history of video game music to a concert series this year. Video Games Live will kick off in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl on July 6 and from there go to Red Rocks, Atlanta, Boston and other to be determined sites.

According to the creators, Video Games Live will feature "World class orchestras accompanied by a choir and selected soloists will perform against a backdrop of state-of-the-art video and laser sequences, which are being specially designed for each of the game vignettes with some segments adding live characters on stage."

"Video game music is not bleeps and bloops anymore. People are absolutely shocked when they hear this music," stated Jack Wall, co-creator of Video Games Live and leading game music composer. "This music represents a true art form. The success of this tour will demonstrate to the world that video game music can command the attention of gamers and non-gamers alike."

"Fans of video games are going to be amazed at what we have in store for them. Never before has the music of video games been presented on this scale. Live entertainment is about to evolve," said Tommy Tallarico, co-creator of Video Games Live and one of the top game music composers. "Video games have become one of the most thrilling and electrifying forms of entertainment in the 21st century. We intend to capture that same excitement level to help create the ultimate celebration of video games for everyone to enjoy."
