A Professional Orchestra which plays only music for video games: Japan BGM Philharmonic Orchestra
Japan BGM Philharmonic Orchestra was produced by Tadakaz Mishiya. Tadakaz created the project “JAGMO”. The project was designed to spread Japanese culture through music which was created for Japanese Games.
Ichihara Yusuke, who loves classical music and game music, is the main conductor. Yusuke grew up playing Nintendo; he loves game music.
One unique feature of this orchestra is that they play only famous Japanese RPG game music. The public at large usually thinks of BGM (Game Background Music) as just being suitable for a game. However, there are many splendid game music compositions! BGM Philharmonic Orchestra plays these musical compositions and removes the “second-rate music” stigma.
Here are some songs performed by Japan BGM Philharmonic Orchestra!
