All Your Bass, Game Music Festival Debuts in England in 2018

The National Videogame Arcade in Nottingham, England has announced the debut dates and details for its new game music and audio festival All Your Bass. Taking place January 19th and 20th, 2018, All Your Bass will bring performances, talks, and more to The National Videogame Arcade and the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.

Masaya Matsuura will be on hand to talk about his pioneering work in the “rhythm action” genre that brought us PaRappa the Rapper, Um Jammer Lammy, and more. The National Videogame Arcade will also be presenting the unique soundtrack for its building which was commissioned by Matsuura. On more hometown turf, legendary British game music composer, Rob Hubbard, will present a “director’s commentary”, a behind-the-scenes discussion of his musical influences and the technology he used through the heyday of the UK’s classic computer game era.

The announced performances will bring unique experiences to the concert hall setting. Friday evening closes with a special edition of the recently announced Dear Esther Live tour. The Liverpool Philharmonic and Thomas McMullen will be joined by Dear Esther composer Jessica Curry to perform, play, and narrate the experience followed by a post-show discussion with Curry.

Later in the weekend, classical music composer Maria Kallionpää and the University of Nottingham’s Mixed Reality Lab will present ‘Climb!’.  A virtuoso piece composed for ‘Live Pianist, Disklavier and Interactive System’, tests the skills of the performer with the interactive system mimicking an invisible chamber music partner. This “partner” presents the challenge by jumping to different points in the score, keeping the performer and audience on their toes.
