A number of video game symphonies have passed through Australia over the years, but it’s about time we had one for home-grown talent. Enter UnderSCORE, a symphony dedicated to Aussie games, scheduled for this September.
It looks like there will be just the one performance on September 1, at the Alex Theatre in St Kilda. Tickets are available now via Ticketek, with adults paying $36.30 while concession holders and under 16s get in for $24.60.
While neither source has a list of developers, games or music, there is a post on the closed IGDA Melbourne Facebook group that offers a taste:
UnderSCORE is the first symphonic concert to feature only Australian video game soundtracks. A 24 piece orchestra will be performing the soundtracks of Florence, RUMU, Hollow Knight, Hand of Fate, Earthlight, and more!
Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start, with an interval at 8:00pm, before finishing around 8:45pm. To give your eyes something to do, the music will be accompanied by gameplay, according to the Visit Melbourne page.
