Orchestral music, am I right guys? I know, it's awesome. Especially when said orchestra is blasting out some of your favourite video game soundtracks. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is now getting in the act of performing video game music to satiate us everyday plebs, and tickets are available now.
Our very own Logan Booker is going to the event, and I'm a bit gutted I can't head over myself since it's in Melbourne, but it looks quite promising. Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub of Penny Arcade TV’s ‘Blaminations’ and ‘The Scott and Kris Show’ are hosting, and apparently Wil Wheaton is also appearing in some capacity — possibly just to give everyone a wave, then moonwalk offstage.
But, of course, it's all about the music, and you can expect a fair amount of it. The orchestra will be playing music from Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, Secret of Mana, Starcraft II, Heavy Rain, Final Fantasy VII, and multiple others. It seems like a bit of a crowd pleaser.
