Videri String Quartet plays game music with class

Debut album Portals covers Journey, Skyward Sword, Kingdom Hearts II, and more

Do you like you game arrangements to have a flair for the classical? Then check out Videri String Quartet, a four-piece string cover band ready to dazzle you with their sensible covers of classic game tunes. After receiving a warm reception at a few shows, including RTX 2012, the group decided to launch a Kickstarter for a studio-produced album. That album is now complete and ready for the world!

Portals, available for $12 from Loudr and iTunes, is a collection of nine arrangements culled from Super Mario Bros., Final Fantasy X, Journey, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Kingdom Hearts II, Final Fantasy VII, Monkey Island, and Halo. Ironically, Portal is not covered despite the album's title suggesting otherwise.

Videri's sound reminds me a lot of Select Start, another band known for their sensible covers of classic game tunes but which has gone quiet in recent years. If you're tired of rock and electronica game mixes, Portals is a great change of pace. Pick it up!
