    Soaring. Majestic. Inspiring. These words have been used to describe the vastness of space AND the stirring performances of video game music’s premiere brass ensemble, The Game Brass. Finally, these two forces of nature have combined for a new album: Brass Effect.
    Brass Effect is a double-album tribute to outer space in gaming, from obvious science-fiction selections from series like Mass Effect, Metroid, and Halo to rare ventures into space by series like Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. Selections also include indie favorites like FTL: Faster Than Light and cult classics like Jet Force Gemini and Star Ocean.

    Capturing the vastness of space across the whole history of gaming isn’t easy, which is why The Game Brass has enlisted a swarming constellation of guest stars, including PurpleSchala, Videri String Quartet, Ro Panuganti, Allison Martin Trombone, DiscoCactus, and more. In a first for the band, they’ve also expanded their horizons beyond their overworked regular arrangers, bringing in fantastic folks like John Paul Hayward (Cross Symphonic), Wayne Strange (Resurrection of the Night), and Ben Wallace (DiscoCactus), among others, to arrange for them.

    This enormous album spans decades of game history, all brought to rich, intimate life by one of the true thought leaders in the “video game music brass ensemble” industry.
