I got to hear "One Winged Angel" with a live orchestra, chorus and electric guitar. On Saturday, I went to Video Games Live (http://www.videogameslive.com/index.php?s=home). It's a orchestral concert series that features selections from video games. In addition to the typical concert material, it's loaded with timed videos, lighting effects, and various gimmicks. The audience certainly wasn't your typical audience. Amidst the ranks of regular symphony patrons sat casually dressed nerds and various cosplaying fans. The concert featured the Austin Symphony Orchestra with chorus and the "blindfolded"/videogame pianist and the show was MCed by the voice of Solid Snake over codec call. Truly epic.
