A live jazz and symphonic concert featuring music from Cuphead and the Ori series is coming to London.
The previously Polish-only event Game Music Festival has announced it will hold its first London event on Sunday, March 6 at the Royal Festival Hall.
GMF London will kick off at 3pm with a big-band ensemble playing the jazz soundtrack of side-scrolling shooter Cuphead, performed by the Bartosz Pernal Orchestra.
This will be followed by a second, symphonic concert at 7pm featuring music from Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and Ori and the Blind Forest, performed live by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Hertfordshire Chorus.
The concert will be preceded by an education event on March 5, where participants will be able to see behind the scenes learning how audio is created for games.
Tickets are on sale now and prices start from £25 per concert and rise according to seat location.
“This time the festival will be held in London, but apart from changing the venue, our approach remains consistent: we aspire to maintain high artistic quality which has become the hallmark of GMF,” commented Marta and Mateusz Pawlak, organisers of GMF London.
“As with previous editions, we extract the musical essence of selected games to present them in a way that will satisfy not only the fan community but also music lovers in general. Besides the two big concerts, we also invite you to the educational programme which will once again be a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience for audio professionals.”
