Within the not solely unlikely occasion you have been clamouring for a bit extra jazz in your Elden Ring soundtrack, Bandai Namco has the reply. It is introduced it will be internet hosting a stay live performance this December that, for these within the US prepared to pay for it, might be streamed on-line.
Elden Ring: A Night time within the Lands Between, because the occasion might be recognized, is a collaboration between Bandai Namco, award-winning musician Kenny Garrett, and Takuya Kuroda. It guarantees “recognisable melodies from the sport’s soundtrack… carried out stay in Jazz format – with improvisation” by a gaggle of musicians lead by Garrett on alto sax and Kuroda on trumpet.
“Whereas online game soundtracks have seen variations as symphonic music and even Rock n’ Roll, our ‘A Night time within the Lands Between’ Jazz occasion is exploring a splendidly completely different remedy of the Elden Ring soundtrack”, wrote Bandai Namco’s senior director of esports and stay leisure Wataru Nakasuji in a press release accompanying at present’s announcement.
“Jazz grasp Kenny Garrett and new technology participant Takuya Kuroda are each actually world-class musicians… and they’re now lending their completely different skills to present start to a brand new artistic strategy to meld music and video video games.”
A Night time within the Lands Between is because of happen at Hollywood’s Bourbon Room on third December, with one efficiency scheduled for 6pm PT and one other at 10pm PT. Each might be streamed stay. There are, nonetheless, two potential snags right here; firstly, Bandai Namco’s occasion web site says livestream and video-on-demand entry are solely obtainable to these throughout the US at current. Secondly, the cost for watching stay is not low cost.
To attend in individual will price both $75 USD, $125, or $200 – with costs figuring out the number of goodies included and whether or not you are sat within the reserved, premium, or VIP seating space. As for livestream entry, that prices both $25 or $50, with the cheaper ticket being occasion entry solely, whereas the costlier choice features a t-shirt and digital soundtrack. Lastly, video-on-demand entry after the occasion prices $15.
At $15, I is perhaps tempted if it wasn’t for the regional restrictions across the occasion. Hopefully Bandai Namco can discover a strategy to open issues as much as a broader viewers at a later date.
