Bigger Than 8-Bits 

Wednesday, May 29 2013

Daaa, da-da-da-da-da-da. Sound familiar? That's the sound of video-game music sophisticated enough for the symphony. If you've ever been a Legend of Zelda fan, you remember the grandeur of its 8-bit soundtrack, which is finally getting the night-long celebration so many feel it deserves. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses will play all-new arrangements of various musical pieces from the long-running Nintendo franchise. The Symphony includes music from games including Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and A Link to the Past. The music will be accompanied by a large-scale video projection of the game's most memorable scenes and characters. You can probably do cosplay at this event (seems about right, although it's not specified) but we'll leave that up to your judgment.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
