Stop what you're doing and watch this. Sure, we've all seen and heard artists explore the correlation between pop culture, music, and video games in the past. Yet, it's hardly been as polished as this.
Game Theory, the video up top, was produced by Ithaca Audio using re-appropriated classic game controllers to build an homage to the last 35 years of video game music. Chris Evans-Roberts at Ithaca explains why he's created this piece.
"2013 marks 35 years of video game music (Space Invaders, released in 1978 was the first game to feature a continuous soundtrack). So we took the opportunity to take a look back at some of our favourite examples of video game music and build a 19 track mashup, combining them with some other tracks we love. The tracks used vary from some of the original 8-bit tracks from the Atari, GameBoy, through '90s N64 and PS1 classics, right up to modern day symphonic epics that accompany some of today's blockbuster games."
Also, when was the last time you saw David Bowie and Lana Del Ray give a duet together? Watch this a million times and thank us later. Let us know what you think.
