It reminds me of something I’d hear from Tony McAlpine ‘Evolution’, which is one of my favorite CDs of all time.
Robbie Benson, the piano player, was playing on PAX’s showroom floor the entire week. He deserved a crowd of 10,000 people watching him play his videogame covers. Sometimes I was the only one watching him play, which is insane. He had some of the sickest chops I’ve seen in a long time.
Thanks for the shoutout, Walt! Hope to see you again next year at PAX Prime!
A short video about our book.
The Video Game Music Book is another project that we are working on here at Glass Arcade Productions. It will be a book of 50 songs from many games throughout video game history from classic arcades to Playstation 3. We plan on having selections from:

- Age of Empires
- Angry Birds
- Animal Crossing
We are Philadelphia-based band “Close to Good,” and we have covered and recorded the entire Megaman 3 Soundtrack! CHECK IT OUT!
The talented Kyo has already submitted a couple of boss style songs to us which were very good. He then asked for support to make an SNES boss battles album (which I hope he’ll submit some of it here!) through his own site. Not long ago he created a kickstarter for it and has successfully…
Hello! My name is Thomas Kresge and I am the manager of a new concert known as the United Video Game Symphony. We are currently raising funds for our concert on Kickstarter:
To summarize, the UVGS is a live concert and album featuring orchestral arrangements of video game music. The UVGS is unique in that the music we play is decided by a public vote, and our arrangements are created by fans of video game music that come from communities like OCReMix. The entire system creates a very community-driven concert that is designed by the fans of the music itself.
We’re currently looking for all the support we can get, so if that sounds like the kind of things you’re into, support our Kickstarter and share it to others! We appreciate all the help we can get!
This is a game I’ve been making, and now I’m funding it on Kickstarter. Please help spread the word and fund the game!

Hey there! Here’s my arrangement for Millenial Fair from Chrono Trigger! Hope you like it!
Just chiming in to add in some more information on other places to hear Mr. Collarblind’s:
Pass by them and give some of his original and arranged tracks a listen. I think you might like them as I did. :)
Some years back, I was really inspired by the gameplay and story of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and I decided to write a 15-part song series about. Life took a weird turn and I never got around to recording it.
Well, here we are in 2013, and I’ve finally gone to the studio.
I began recording the series with Part 14: “Deep Blue Lake” for one silly reason: it was the easiest.
Stream it here:
I hope you enjoy the song, and the various connections it makes to the game. More information about the series, the recording, and upcoming shows can be found at www.arielbitran.com
