Video Game Music

I have a painting commission i really need to finish so i'll have a talk update tonight, work before play and all that stuff...

Recently i came across some vids on youtube of game music performances, some of it by orchestra but mostly its of people at home with personal instruments. This has really made my week, this concert in particular, Tour de Japon, music from Final Fantasy. Nobuo Uematsu is the composer responsible for much of the music in the Final Fantasy series, i'm not sure but i think this concert was only available to his fanclub members in Japan. Anyone who has played the games knows how special the music is, it's part of the charm and this song is a fav of mine. The Oath from FFVIII, so much emotion comes through...

The Composer Mizuta Naoshi is briliant. You must hear the game score from "Okami". Great stuff! Composer: Masami Ueda, Hiroshi Yamaguchi.

I'm not familiar with Okami, i'll have to try and find a sample somewhere. I missed Naoshi's work on FF XI, skipped that one since it was online.

I keep hearing that the music in ICO and Shadow of the Colossus is awesome, two games i've been meaning to play... havent touched anything since Metal Gear 3.

Hey, love your sketches. Amazing.

I loved the clip you shared so much, I looked for the music. On minorcrisis.net they have an orchestral version, although I like this youtube one more for some reason. But yeah, minorcrisis and type in "final fantasy oath" You can right click the green arrow next to the song and download it free.
