The Reno Video Game Symphony just threw a convention in Reno, NV. It was called GAME Expo(Games, Art, Music, and Entertainment). The event featured panelists by game designers, The Gamer Access, and a really wonderful panel by Nutritious and Flexstyle from Overclocked Remix. We ended the day with a ton of musical performances by 7 different groups playing video game music. Tears were shed and many hugs were exchanged by people dressed in incredible costumes.
Here's a highlight reel of the event:
This event was incredibly fun to organize, and I think this project could really expand next year to bring out the West Coast video game music community. If you're on the West Coast, what would you want from an event like this?
