Guild Wars music to be featured in PLAY! concert series

Michael Zenke

The official Guild Wars website and the official site for the concert series PLAY! are trumpeting the addition of some MMO music to Seattle musical performances. Jeremy Soule's work on the Guild Wars campaigns joins his compositions from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Prey on the touring circuit. The prolific composer is probably one of the most recognizable names in game music today, having won numerous awards from a number of prestigious groups. They currently only have a few stops on the schedule for the 2008 tour, but hopefully this new musical addition will make its way to a venue near you.

ArenaNet has announced that music from its
Guild Wars franchise of games will be performed as part of the "PLAY! A Video Game Symphony". This world-wide symphonic tour features music from a number of top videogames, including songs from Guild Wars. The tour kicks off in Fort Worth, Texas, on January 19, 2008 ... Guild Wars has been praised for its rich soundtracks created by renowned video-game music composer Jeremy Soule and co-composer Julian Soule. The Soule brothers have created music for the entire Guild Wars franchise including the original Guild Wars, as well as the Factions and Nightfall campaigns. The music of Guild Wars is also featured on CD in special edition retail packages for each campaign.
