Games In Concert: The Score

Metropole Orkest was one of the first European orchestras to bring game music to concert halls. As game music evolves and gains more attention, The Smartphone Orchestra and Metropole Orkest go one step further. What happens if we bring not only music but also gameplay to the concert hall?

The audience plays a specially designed game, the scores determine ‘The Score’: the music that the orchestra plays. The result is a completely new and sometimes hilarious concert experience, in which audience and orchestra work together.

In addition to the interactive concert game Metropole Orkest plays the finest video game music. Epic compositions of games like Horizon Forbidden West and Assassin’s Creed Mirage, and the surprising soundtracks of Cuphead and Undertale.

Games in Concert: The Score is made possible in part by Het Cultuurfonds, Creative Industries Fund NL and Cultuurloket DigitALL.

My involvement: I was involved as the creative developer for the Smartphone Orchestra: focusing on game design, game development, conceptualizing & the visual design.
