Just like the spaceguitarist from LBA1, in relation to Twinsun who lives in Citadel Island.

I really depends on when the summer camp is, I've been trying to get the date from my teacher for nearly 1 months. I think I'll start stalking him/sending one message per day.

This reminds me that Vachey once pointed out exactly this issue in one of his interviews.
He said something like this (I am sorry I don't have the file with me right now to get the exact quote):

Quote:
"I make music for videogames. It is important for a person to know the difference between videogame music and music for videogames."

Polaris, you play the Hurdy-Gurdy, which is pretty cool, so as a fellow musician I'll try to give you an explanation you simply won't fail to understand!

Imagine you were invited to make music for a game... would you:

A) Listen to other famous videogame music and then try to copy them in the same style because that's how it is done;

OR

B) Create your own music, in the way you think it should be, and then use this music as a soundtrack for the videogame;

?

Option B is what differentiates Vachey from most "composers" who usually opt for A.



PS: No wonder the man who funded Adeline and made LBA possible was a producer/musician!
He sure had an ear to pick the right person to compose LBA's soundtrack and wouldn't let that part unnoticed.

About Polaris' murdering, I volunteer to perform it. If I'm not mistaken we live in the same country (same city?).

I meant the same thing when I said "videogame music", I don't think I've ever heard "copied" music.

He is really good.

Way to good for just a video game.


But to compare him with beethoven and mozart is a bit too much

Well, the verdict has arrived, the summercamp will be from the 26. of June to the 2. of July... Yeah, I'm sure the concert and the camp planners talked about this
I don't think I'll go to that concert
For all those raging at me for missing such a greate opportunity, from my point of view, it's choosing between something I know will be awesome, and something I think will be O.K., so...

Wow, I may just have to go to this.

Everyone has their favorite bands/artist they would love to see live, and I'm no different. But seeing the LBA theme played live? I am not worthy.

Might also take a whack at designing the poster. Would love to meet the people involved!

[Announcement official] We are very sorry to announce that we have decided to cancel the Game Music is Alive concert, which was planned to take place at the Trianon theater in Paris, on June 29th.This project was a huge bet for us, not only because of its complexness, but also because it was a real challenge in every aspect of its planning.

Although the decision was hard to take, this cancellation is mainly due to material reasons within Wayô Records. We fully endorse the responsibility of this cancellation and gauge the consequences of such a decision for every party involved in the project for many months, as well as for the numerous fans. We wish to heartily thank the composers who took part in this concert and regret to have not been able to honor our engagement to them.

For buyers: all tickets booked will be refunded quickly through BilletRéduc, Fnac and Weezevent.

If you have any question related to the concert and its cancellation, please feel free to contact us at: [email address]
