Concert Shots: Zelda Symphony @ Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver

The Zelda Symphony is on tour once more, this time bringing with it a whole new repertoire of tracks to dazzle audiences. And dazzle they did! With new performances based on Link to the Past, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and other titles from the long history of the franchise, the Zelda Symphony did not disappoint when they brought their act to Vancouver's Orpheum Theatre. Shots below from the show! [gallery ids="8018,8019,8020,8021,8022,8023,8024,8025,8026,8027,8028,8029,8030,8031,8032,8033,8034,8035,8036,8037"]

Takeharu Ishimoto adds The World Ends With You live remixes to Soundcloud

Takeharu-Ishimoto-The-World-Ends-With-You-Wonderful-Life-live-remix-music

Square-Enix Composer Takeharu Ishimoto has been posting a variety of live remixes from his soundtrack to The World Ends With You. There are also a smattering of other songs spread through out.

I was a big fan of a lot of the things that The World Ends With You brought to the table. A fast-paced modern day RPG with a distinct look, and even more distinct sound. That sound is thanks to Ishimoto's uptempo fusion of rock and techno. This is even more distinct in a well-recorded live setting.

It's hard to believe that the game came out all the way back in 2008. Battle system wise, I don't think any RPG has matched it since. This game was very unique and made the most of the dual screen technology of the DS. Considering the layout of the 3DS, it's hard to believe that if this game does get a true sequel, the gameplay will look similar to the original. I do hope that the crew gets back together and does another game with a similar style, but let this title rest with it's incredible and unique style of gameplay. What happened to spiritual successors in video games?

Chrono Trigger's Wind Scene by 8 Bit Instrumental

As most gamers my age, I am absolutely in love with nearly every aspect of the Square classic Chrono Trigger. The game originally launched on the SNES in 1995, and essentially decimated all competitors to the RPG throne. One of the reasons this game is so well regarded is the unbelievable breadth, style, and memorability of the soundtrack. Yasunori Mitsuda was the composer for Chrono Trigger, which was the first game he ever headed in such a major capacity.

The video above is a 2008 rendition of Wind Scene from the Chrono Trigger soundtrack by 8 Bit Instrumental, from their album The Number of the Bit. 8 Bit Instrumental is a group of Brazilian musicians who have spent years arranging amazing live renditions of classic video game themes. Relax and let the sounds of Chrono Trigger sooth you before that next big boss battle.

International Dub Ambassadors - The Return Of The Curse Of The Creature's Ghost (bootleg)

This band is a testament to making sure I check my emails more thoroughly. International Dub Ambassadors are a collection of folks from Puerto Rico playing some amazing live arrangements of classic NES and SNES tunes. With big band rearrangements of Contra, Super Mario World, and F-Zero it is tough to choose a favorite. Luckily I don't have to decide because the entire The Return Of The Curse Of The Creature's Ghost (bootleg) can be downloaded free of charge.

Music currently unavailable from artist.

Concert Shots: Skyfox, MC Lars, The Protomen, I Fight Dragons

Live, from the Metro in Chicago, it's a cornucopia of nerdcore bands pumping out their best! Wrapping up their tour, The Protomen and I Fight Dragons brought with them Skyfox and MC Lars to dish out the best nerd-music show that Chicago has had in a good while. Filling up the venue, they failed to disappoint as Skyfox captured new hearts and minds, MC Lars entertained, The Protomen battled for freedom, and I Fight Dragons, well...fought dragons! While it was a show that's best experienced by being there in person, I've got some shots that capture at least a fraction of the energy that these guys were pumping through Chicago's veins.
