Music and video games go together like Mario and Yoshi. Without their evocative soundtracks, the faraway lands of video games would feel hollow, unmotivated and without emotional center. It’s no surprise, then, that plenty of people want to hear the music outside the game. Game On finds Symphony San Jose deep in the cartridges and downloads, pulling melodies from everything from World of Warcraft to Assassin’s Creed to Destiny, Bioshock and horror franchise devotee Until Dawn. It’s a chance to experience the swelling symphonic euphoria of digital storytelling live, and to appreciate the music for what it is.
