Video Games Live founders to discuss and play game music at November event

Two of the game industry’s prominent soundtrack composers will be discussing the craft at the upcoming NEoN Digital Arts Festival.

Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall together founded Video Games Live; a live orchestral event playing tribute to some of the most iconic game soundtracks, yet both have also written music for numerous games such as Earthworm Jim, Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia and Mass Effect.

At the inaugural NEoN Digital Arts Festival, Tallarico and Wall will discuss the nature of music in videogames, while also conduct a Q&A session with attendees.

NEoN takes place in Dundee from Friday 13-15 November. The event will close with Tallarico and Wall’s Video Games Live European Tour show.
