Video Games Live album trailer is epic
Video Games Live is releasing an all new album as well as a documentary on putting together this massive musical celebration
The best games involve so many different elements which make them truly memorable, from the graphics and art style to the story and the delicate movements of the gameplay. But one of the most important aspects is definitely the music.
Video game music at least rivals the quality of what is being done in large scale movies, and the length of games often means that many, many hours of music have to be created to keep players engaged. These themes help us to feel excitement, fear, hope, happiness, humour and many other emotions, and they often stand on their own as great works of art.
It's fitting then that a celebration of gaming music exists in the form of Video Games Live. This started as a once off concert in the US in 2005 conceived by composers Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall and has exploded since into a series of global tours to more than 50 countries. This year sees the release of a new album called, fittingly, Level 5 and they're looking to Kickstarter to get it funded.
Here's the trailer for the campaign, which will also include the production of a documentary about VGL.
The Kickstarter itself is live now and includes some great rewards, including a huge amount of music content (as you would expect) and very limited edition physical stuff. You can also get VIP tickets to the upcoming shows, a Skype chat with Tallarico and a tour of the Blizzard offices in the USA!
