I have an article published at The Partial Observer today that deals with the issue of video game music. On May 10th, the L.A. Philharmonic gave a performance featuring music from the video game “Final Fantasy” and tickets sold out with three days of going on sale. But the concert wasn’t their idea; the orchestra was hired, reluctantly, by the company that designed the video game.
Fellow AJblogger Greg Sandow published some insightful comments from one of his readers one the subject.
The music director series from last week generated a tremendous amount of responses from readers. I’ll be posting excerpts from several of those tomorrow as well as some thoughts from JoAnn Falletta, music director for the Buffalo Philharmonic and Virginia Symphony. So make sure to stop by during your daily internet rounds.
