I’m starting to get into orchestrated music.  Not just any orchestrated music, videogame orchestrated music!!  I never knew how orchestrated music can sound so good.  I made a blog a month ago that had orchestrated videogame music, and posted some of the music here and there in different blogs.

Here’s a recap on what songs I posted in the past that are completely orchestrated.  First, here is the blog I posted a month ago.  Of course, I can’t accept all the credit, because users like you that help contribute to my topics through the comments, makes all the material readable, worthwhile, enjoyable, and fulfilled!  I always love to see something different as well as others who read the topics and contributions! :D

I just found this.  Here you go Killzone Fans!  I actually like this theme.  Enjoy! :D

The Halo theme played by an orchestra is the most epic thing ever.

CL60: You saw it in the other blog?  I agree that the Halo theme on that album was really good.  I got the entire album of Videogames Live on my Zune! :D

Here you go! :D

I was really surprised how good the Mass Effect score was. They could have gone with some non-descript orchestral piece that doesn't stand out, but they went for a unique tonal experience. It's slightly reminiscent of John Murphy's Sunshine score, and that was exactly the feeling the game needed.

Sir_Ragnarok: You know Volume 1 of Video Games Live is for sale and availible on different market places - Ipod and Zune.

Thank you, your blog is now complete. I seriously get massive goosebumps when listening to that.

Hehe! :D Orchestrated music in general gives me goosebumps if I like it! :D  The Mass Effect Theme did, and I don't even have the game. :D

The part that always gets me is at 1:49. Easily the best moment of the song.

if you turn off the radio in fallout 3, there really is some amazing music in that game

That tetris one...woah.

#15 Posted by Tireyo (6409 posts) -

The tetris is pretty cool I thought!  Caught me by surprise! :D

Thread needs more Uematsu.

You are not alone (Final Fantasy IX)

  

Bombing Mission (Final Fantasy VII, done to death but still epic as hell.)

  

Opening / Terra's theme (Final Fantasy VI, personal favorite orchestrated version.)

The oblivion one makes me feel all tingly in my stomach. Also, that gusty gardens one is mildly freaking amazing. I never really paid attention to the music in Galaxy, but perhaps I should have if they were like that.
