Interview with Thomas Boecker, Concert ProducerRegarding Symphonic Fantasies the concert, Symphonic Fantasies the album, and other game music projects.08.03.10 - 12:55 AM
If you live in Europe and you like RPGs, and
you really like the music in those RPGs, you had better get to know Thomas Boecker. Hailing from Germany, Mr. Boecker has helped collaborate with some of the biggest names in game music to create some of the most splendid game music concerts in Europe, and perhaps the world. We'll all get to be the judge of that in September when their debut album, for the "Symphonic Fantasies" concert, is released.
In any case, we had a number of questions for Mr. Boecker. How'd he manage to bring together such legendary names as Uematsu and Mitsuda? How'd he get approval from Square Enix to do these concerts? Why is game music becoming more popular, and how do these live shows fit into the scheme of things?
