Default Ancient Festival / Yuzo Koshiro Concert Livestream

Hey guys,

Thought many of you (if already didn't know in any case) might be interested in this:

The concert will be broadcasted on youtube, I think at 14:00 GMT+9 this saturday December 1. No idea if it will remain on the channel to watch later, but I wouldn't bet on it so you might want to reserve some time for the occasion

I was looking forward to this so thanks for the heads up.

I wish more VGM orchestras would offer livestreaming for their concerts.

There's a bouquet of flowers from Joe Hisaishi at the concert. I always forget that he's a close friend of Koshiro.

2nd half with Actraiser = Amazing performance with spot on accuracy. Totally pro level.

1st half = 15 minutes of talking per 3 minutes of music... more songs, less talk!!
However, it was quite interesting to see their translation of the Bare Knuckle techno music into the orchestral format, that was a unique experience.

Had to goto bed and miss the Actraiser. Seems they didn't keep the video. Sigh.

Agree with Carl. The music was all well performed it just would have been nice if they didn't spend so much time discussing the games in between. Oh, and the conductor walking back and forth across the stage to get the mic to MC was driving me mad. Just turn it off and leave it on the podium!

The live chat was fun. I didn't see any names I knew other than Kewing

For anyone who missed the live stream: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...dGTllTDReespfJ

I understand why there was a lot of talking. It was a Yuzo Koshiro concert and the composer himself was there to talk about his music. Though they could have structured it better because the first half of the concert had no flow at all.

Pretty much agree with almost all of what's been said. Amazing performance overall, specially on Actraiser, even though the concert would be worth it just for the Etrian Odissey Medley alone, already.
Maybe less talking or better flow. Also, I was a liiiiitle bummed out by the fact that not one but all of the two encores were just a repeat. It would have been an amazing finish to end up with a mini medley arrangement like the SOR2 one of maybe Revenge of Shinobi or Misty Blue, or hell, imagine Ys. But alas.
It was also pretty fun the hype in the chat with the western crowd, Actraiser definitely raised some expectations. Didn't recognize you there Zorb, but there was bound to be more vgmdb people for sure
Still, a performance to remember

Yep, also saw it on twitter, but holy crap, had no idea they would include that other material. Those SEGA pieces skyrocketed my hype for this release even more.
