Thread: Video Games Live for Coachella!

    Default Video Games Live for Coachella!

    How about an epic set from the Video Games Live orchestra. Methinks the average Coachella-goer is around the age that would appreciate something unique like this.

    Yeah yeah I know I'm a lurker, but my opinion still counts!

    Yes because what I would love to do during my vacation in the desert is to sit on my ass and play video games.

    ...

    Oh. You want a Video Game orchestra? My mistake.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    If George Lucas takes that Star Wars Orchestra shit and goes Coachella bound, I'm blaming this thread right here.

    I'd love to see what Coachella would make of the Silent Hill score.

    Sunshine!



    Amazing stuff.

    I think a Nobu Uematsu Final Fantasy set would be too much too ask for and unrealistic since that's such a niche audience, but I think an orchestra playing songs from Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, etc would draw a big crowd just because it's something never done before, but Video Games Live is an established act. I went to see them here in San Diego and it was awesome.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a station where people can play videogames at the festival rather than hearing the music. Imagine being able to play Super Smash Bros on a big screen with random heads from the festival... That would be something
    G-funk acquired, thank you Coachella

    so of course i had to look this up on wikipedia...

    the song is called Techno Syndrome by The Immortals. They would proabably only need a 10-15 minute set since their entire discography is just variations of the mortal kombat theme song. this would be so worth it. how many people can say they saw the mortal kombat theme song dudes play.

    another interesting tidbit i saw was that the soundtrack for the first movie features a track by orbital.

    The video games live is actually a really good set. It's basically an Orchestra performing a lot of classic video game music. I really enjoyed it when I saw it here in Calgary.

    I don't know how great this would be for Coachella. It needs big screens to show the games and give a light show. I think that the music would be pretty epic for Coachella but I think it would need to start to late to work at Coachella.

    Too bad the Section Quartet hasn't been back to Coachella in a while.

    There are a few other groups that play covers of rock music with classical instruments, right?

    Found out about Unlearn by Psykosonik because of that CD.

    One of the greatest overlooked electronic albums of the 90's
