Vidgames: 'Lineage II' concert

NCsoft Announces “Lineage II: The Concert” -- Award-winning composer Inon Zur to be honored at first symphonic game music concert in Korea.

Renowned composer Inon Zur will be celebrated in a special live symphony concert presentation of his music for the computer game Lineage II: Chronicle V: Oath of Blood, to be performed by the Mostly Philharmonic Orchestra at the AX-Hall in Seoul, Korea on May 30th, 2006. Internationally recognised as one of the A-list composers in the video games industry, Zur was commissioned by NCsoft Korea to compose the game’s original score based on his award-winning dramatic music for film, television and video games.

Mr. An Yong Jin, Sound Supervisor at NCsoft Studio E&G and organizer of Lineage II: The Concert, said, ”Inon has written some of the most emotionally charged and ethereal music heard in a computer game to date. His music for Lineage II is perfectly suited for a live symphony concert setting and more importantly it matches our vision for this epic game and upgrades the fantasy to a whole new level!”

For the recording of the Lineage II: Chronicle V: Oath of Blood original game score, Zur recently conducted and recorded with the 70-piece Northwest Sinfonia at the Bastyr University Chapel in Seattle. The score was mixed at Zur’s project studio in Los Angeles.

Commenting on his music for the game and the upcoming live concert performance in Seoul, Korea, Inon Zur said, “I’m very proud and honored to take part in the legendary Lineage series. I hope my music will add to the Lineage heritage and bring some new elements to this magical world. I had an extremely fascinating experience working on this game and I look forward to sharing this music with the players and fans. It is a dream come true to have my music performed live in concert.”
