Game Music Festival starts in

See you there!

We Bring to You

THE SECOND GAME MUSIC FESTIVAL

After over a decade of working on connecting both of our major loves: games and music, the gamemusic.pl team, made it happen. Last year you have had a chance to taste the fruit of our team’s hard work and passion – the first Game Music Festival.

Our biggest priority is to present what we find most fascinating- the purest sound quality of acoustic soundtracks versions. This year we would love to take you again on this journey and surprise you with what we have learned from previous edition by bringing your favorite themes and beautiful melodies in true, and incomparable style. Do not miss your chance to experience the second Game Music Festival in Wrocław, Poland.

MUSIC FROM JOURNEY, ABZÛ AND THE BANNER SAGA

The very first concert on this year’s Festival brings coziness and ease, despite the fact that it consists of contrasts. The subtle and timeless symphonic soundtracks of Journey and of Abzû confront with cold and austere suite telling the tale of northern lands in The Banner Saga. These three soundtracks have one person standing behind them – composer Austin Wintory.

Close your eyes and let the Sound Factory Orchestra take you with them through the sand, the sea depths and through the snow.

MUSIC FROM ICO, SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS AND THE LAST GUARDIAN

Each of the three suites you will be presented with during The Symphony of the Colossus is a piece of art and magic.The music of Fumito Ueda thrilogy reveals an epic story of mysterious creatures, poignant friendships and great worlds waiting for you to discover them through… music.

Rich in monumental and at the same time delicate melodies, composed by three japanese artists: Michiru Ōshima, Kow Otani, Takeshi Furukawa, accompany the main heroes in their struggle with their fate.

An exquisite adventure lead by Sound Factory Orchestra is a thing you cannot miss.

MUSIC FROM ASSASSIN’S CREED II AND HITMAN

It has been 10 years already since the great Assassin’s Creed II was released and almost 20 since we saw the first Hitman game. Profound and astonishing soundtracks from these games will show you two worlds that might seem entirely different, but in fact, have a lot in common. Extraordinary music that accompanies both assassins was composed by Jesper Kyd.

The two symphonic suites will be performed live by over a hundred musicians: the full NFM Wrocław Philharmonic Orchestra and a choir.
