Week in Video Game Inspired Music 1/18 - 1/24

Look up above, today's art is not a painting, but a very cool clay sculpture done by artist unicornstrike, and simply entitled Roselia. Be sure to check out more of her impressive video game inspired sculptures as well!

In GM4A news, if you look over to your left, you will see an advertisement for our next concert! It is called Pizza and Chips 2, and will feature amazing music by several great VG inspired musicians. More info for that on the event page.

That is about it from me this week, except for the unrelated but very sad news that Conan O'Brien has walked away from the Tonight Show, but hopefully he will be popping up soon with something new and awesome. Anyway, check out the links below for this week's news! NEWS

VIDEO This weeks video comes courtesy of the one and only MAGFest. This year's series of performers really outdid itself with tons of amazing songs, and performances. This is but the smallest of highlights below. Armcannon covers the amazing Chrono Trigger soundtrack with their arrangement of Zeal, orginally from Bad Dudes' Chronotorious album. Also be sure to see one of their latest debuts in their amazing F-Zero medley, which came very very close to being this weeks video, considering my endless love for the music from F-Zero. In the end though, the amazing guitar solos in the below video just edged it out for video of the week.

Week in Video Game Inspired Music 1/11 - 1/17

I am finally back with the first This Week in VGIM of the new year, and decade, and millenium (depending on where you start counting). Up above we have some incredible artwork by zgul-osr1113 and goes by the name Like Jazz Zora band Indigogos. This piece definitely has video game music written...ahem...drawn all over it! Well in site related news I have to reiterate that we have our second release. This time it's some ambient space tunes courtesy of Doug Leinen and his new album Songs to Sing in Space (download here). I have been away for a bit due to unforeseen circumstances that were mentioned before, so there is a huge list of remixes this time around. Now let's get down to the nitty gritty of the news.

VIDEO Video this week is pretty crazy, but hard not to enjoy, and comes our way via Nobuooo and Tiny Cartridge. The song is “Star Soldier - Soul of the 16 Shot” by Takahashi Meijin and IOSYS and Tiny Cartridge has this to say about it, "This wondrous music video comes from Takahashi Meijin Legend: Soul of the 16-Shot, an upcoming album remixing songs from classic Hudson titles like Lode Runner, Challenger, and Milon’s Secret Castle."

It definitely sounds like this should be one catchy, album of some of the more overlooked classic themes of the NES era. Enjoy, and don't get your mind blown too much.
