Clip from the upcoming “The Greatest Video Game Music 2”
These songs are really great for a couple of reasons. The scores themselves are magnificent if they are going to be anything like the first album. The London Philharmonic Orchestra brings all of my favorite video game themes to life with bright vibrant color. Listening to the frantic sounds of Tetris or the happy tunes from Super Mario Bros. with a full orchestra score is just epic. Also the music is great for me when I am writing because it helps me focus.
