Heroes Symphony takes you on a hero's journey, as set forth by Joseph Campbell's monomyth; a narrative framework that can be seen in many of the games, film, and books throughout history. Each stage in the monomyth is a chapter in our story, and each game/musical selection was chosen primarily for its suitability for the chapter that it is featured in. In this way, our story is the story of a hero, told through the amazing worlds of other heroes, in an unforgettable experience that's not to be missed.
Also of note, our story is narrated by the incomparable Nigel Carrington, whose voice many may know from The Chinese Room's, “Dear Esther.”
From composers Nobuo Uematsu, Garry Schyman, Mike Morasky, John Debney, Jessica Curry, Inon Zur, Austin Wintory and more, everything starts with the music, and our award-winning lineup brings you some of the best music that games have to offer. Many of the pieces we feature in our program are from games that have won Best Original Music Composition awards from industry groups such as the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS), The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), and the Game Audio Network Guild (GANG).
