Friday Video Game Music Round-up – 5/25/12

Here’s what happened this past week in the world of video game music and audio!

  • Want to hear some chip-tunes related goodness this weekend?  Then check out Blip Festival 2012 in NYC starting today, May 25th and running until Sunday the 27th- check the link for details.  Here’s a write-up in Popular Mechanics about all the goings ons.  I’ll be rooting for fellow Philadelphia-based artist Chipocrite.
  • Here’s a little piece in the LA Times by Jamie Wetherbe highlighting the Pacific Symphony, the orchestra that provided the soundtrack to Diablo III.
  • Video game musician Mega Ran/Random’s (Raheem Jarbo) new album, Language Arts:  Volume One, looks to be awesome.  It’s an album, a comic book, and a video game.  Here’s a write-up in Kotaku.
  • Spain awards Shigeru Miyamoto their prestigious Prince of Asturias award.
  • Lastly, Peter Gregson, Daniel Jones, and the Britten Sinfonia Orchestra are going to make music out of people’s tweets.

Have a good weekend, folks!  For you US people, have a good Memorial Day!
