Musique de jeux vidéo or Game Music

Angèle Dubeau gave NPR an interview about her new album, with string Quartet La Pieta, Game Music. It is her interesting take on some very familiar music. "On her latest album, Game Music — or, in her home of Quebec, Musique de jeux vidéo — Dubeau interprets a variety of video game themes with her string quartet, La Pieta. 'I always thought, 'Good music is good music,' ' Dubeau tells NPR's Robert Siegel."


  1. Bought the album this morning after seeing an ad on a bus (I live in Quebec City and she’s fairly popular around here).

    I’ve particularly been enjoying her take on the Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy and Tetris themes.

    The FF medley especially, as I’ve always been a big fan of Nobuo Uematsu, is a great selection of themes from FF6 to X.

  2. He describe video game music as “Soundtrack of life for adolescents of all ages” and “music to kill people by”.  Its sad that Robert Siegel had such a narrow view of games and the music found in them.
