Le Major Musicali Approcciano il Video Games Live

Per la prima volta nella storia, una major del mondo della musica si affaccia alle note videoludiche per produrre una compilation che farà il giro del mondo. Si tratta di EMI, che ha prodotto un CD da 11 brani tratti dal Video Games Live, manifestazione itinerante che ripropone i brani più famosi della storia del videogame in chiave orchestrale.

Video Games Live: Volume One contiene brani con arrangiamenti esclusivi creati insieme ai compositori originali appositamente per i concerti dal vivo, suonati per l'occasione dalla Slovak National Orchestra, The Crouch End Festival Chorus e altri ancora. La compilation è disponibile in Inghilterra in forma digitale dal 7 luglio, mentre per la versione europea del CD sarà necessario attendere il 20 Agosto, data in cui l'orchestra del Video Games Live approderà a Lipsia, in Germania.
