“This is Musicians at Play’s fourth year presenting a concert at the beautiful Ford Theatres in Hollywood,” says Musicians at Play (MAP) Foundation Executive Director April Williams. “We are proud to celebrate Game Theory with Chad Seiter’s vision and some of today’s most innovative Indie Video Game Composers and their fantastic music, performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony Orchestra.”
GAME THEORY is an exhilarating and fun night of symphonic & electronic game music and solo performances. Conducted by composer and music director Chad Seiter and featuring the 60-piece Hollywood Studio Symphony Orchestra, GAME THEORY provides a rare opportunity to hear these scores performed live and gives an inspiring look into the wonderous world of video games.
“I really look forward to presenting GAME THEORY to the world,” says Composer and Music Director Chad Seiter. “The music created for independent video games is excellent and definitely deserves to be presented with a live symphony orchestra. I’m excited to work with all the composers to create new arrangements of their music and to hear their stories on the stage.”
