I missed the one and only time they were in Toronto. So sad. But I got a chance to go see Video Game Live, another video game symphony. It was the best moment of my life when I watched One Wing Angel being performed by a live orchestra.
You must have been upset that you missed that the performance in Toronto 😦 Well, you’ll get a chance to see some other time 🙂
Ah, Nobuo Uematsu is great isn’t it? One Wing Angel must have sounded great played by a live orchestra 🙂
I caught them in Singapore, 2007, thanks to early bookings. Fantastic concert, they actually screened game footage while the orchestra was playing, even had a harpsichord specially for the fugal part in FF6’s Dancing Mad. They had some kooky PS1 ninja game as an encore if i’m not wrong XD
Ah, it’s good that you got a chance to see it 🙂 That must have been a great experience for you 🙂
