Video Games Live - Montreal 08

Ok, so where do I start. Ah yes! So I went to Video Games Live Montreal to listen to some good ol' video game music hahaha!

The event was organized by two video game music composers and the orchestra was a local one (YAY MONTREAL!!!).

A lot of classic game music was played and a lot of new ones also. Some of the games played were: Metal Gear Solid, Legend of Zelda, Sonic, Mario, Final Fantasy, Warcraft, StarCraft and many more!

I will be uploading videos of the event on youtube pretty soon.

Ok, so the orchestra also played some on-the-fly music when some competitions were being held on stage. One of them was a guy playing Space Invaders, and the other one was two guys competing in Frogger. The orchestra would play music depending on what the players did on screen.

There were other competitions being held, like a draw for a PSP during the 20 minutes break.

The sound quality was pretty good at the Theatre St-Denis. The view from the balcony was pretty good and the crowd was great.

The event even had a special guest, a guy that plays Mario piano songs on youtube. This guy was amazing on stage, he even performed blind folded while playing Mario music. He was one great addition to the event!

All in all, I don't have anything negative to say about this event and I recommend it to everyone that likes music to go see this when they come back!
