Game Music Foundation has announced its popular Game Music Festival event. This event is usually held in Warsaw, Poland. However, it is coming to London this March. Game Music Festival London is set to feature a big-band ensemble playing the jazz age soundtrack of legendary run-and-gun title, Cuphead. Followed by a symphonic concert featuring music from Ori and the Will of the Wisps. As well as Ori and the Blind Forest. All performed live at London’s Royal Festival Hall!

As well as the performances, an educational program will also take place on the first day of the festival. The second day of the event will be dedicated to live concerts. The three previous editions of the Game Music Festival have been praised by fans worldwide. More importantly, they have attracted an audience of over 12,000 on-site guests in total. The whole initiative is organized by the Game Music Foundation with tickets now available at gmfest.com.

Performances – 6th March

“The Jazz of Cuphead” will start the performances with music from the stylish title interpreted by a seasoned big band. As well as the early styles of jazz mixed with ragtime music, Cuphead swiftly transports the listener to a world inspired by Duke Ellington and Count Basie. Cuphead has won a well-deserved BAFTA Games Award for Best Music with composer, Kristofer Maddigan. Who will join the audience to see his score brought to life.

Lauded upon release, Ori and the Will of the Wisps feature an unforgettable score by multi-BAFTA nominated and Ivor Novello winning composer, Gareth Coker. Entitled “The Symphony Of The Spirits” and performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Hertfordshire Chorus who recorded the game soundtrack originally. The second concert of the day will take the audience on a journey through Ori’s world as never before.

Education Events and Workshops – 5th March

Beginning on Saturday the 5th March. The Game Music Festival 2022 educational program will host masterclass workshops and other sessions. This is where event-goers will be able to look behind the scenes and learn how audio is created for games. They can improve their skills and learn many tips and tricks from sound designers and the composers themselves.

These sessions will be a unique opportunity to have a closer look into the world of music and sound in contemporary video games. It is also a fantastic opportunity for anyone who plans to build a career composing or designing sound in games.

“This time the festival will be held in London. Apart from changing the venue, our approach remains consistent. we aspire to maintain high artistic quality which has become the hallmark of Game Music Festival. 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 program which will once again be a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience for audio professionals. We hope that both our regular audience as well as newcomers will be pleased with the end result at London’s Southbank Centre”.

commented Marta and Mateusz Pawlak, organisers of GMF London.
