Video Games Live Launches Kickstarter Today To Huge Success!
Video Games Live is an award winning immersive world touring concert event featuring music from the most popular video games of all time. Created, produced and hosted by world renowned game industry veteran Tommy Tallarico, top orchestras and choirs around the world perform along with exclusive synchronized video footage and music arrangements, synchronized lighting, well known internet solo performers, electronic percussion, live action and unique interactive segments to create an explosive one-of-a-kind entertainment experience.
Picture the energy and excitement of a rock concert mixed with the power and emotion of a symphony orchestra combined together by the technology, interactivity, stunning visuals and fun that only video games can provide. Completely synchronized cutting-edge video screen visuals, state-of-the-art lighting and special fx, stage show production and special on-stage interactive segments with the audience dazzle crowds of all ages - gamers and non-gamers alike.
The Kickstarter campaign will help raise funds to create and produce a fifth album entitled "LEVEL 5". It will also help to create a full length concert video, "Making of" Documentary and many other ancillary products and music such as a Majora's Mask piano album and sheet music. The LEVEL 5 album will be a studio recording (not a live recording).
Over the past 14 years Video Games Live has helped to legitimize video game music and has shown the world the creative, cultural and artistic side of gaming. Although VGL has obtained a lot of accolades and success, the music industry and record companies are VERY different and no music or record company is willing to invest the budget needed to accomplish the goals and put out a top quality product that we and the entire game industry can be proud of. They don't believe in the culturally artistic significance of video game music and they don't believe that people are interested in listening after the game is turned off. So that's where YOU come in!
The album track list will consist of never before released Video Games Live music arrangements from the following game franchises:
-Super Mario World
-The Legend of Zelda
-World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor
-Command & Conquer: Red Alert
And hopefully more depending on the Stretch Goals. Stretch Goal music includes Mother/Earthbound, Okami, Xenogears/saga/blade, Katamari Damacy and hopefully EVEN MORE!
The goal (with stretch goals met) is to have between 12-15 tracks on the album with a release date of July, 2016. To contribute to this Kickstarter, head on over to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1916334303/video-games-live-level-5-album-and-movie.
