FINAL FANTASY XV Live at Abbey Road Studios
The music of Final Fantasy XV was just played live at the famous Abby Road Studios! I missed it live but just got finished watching on YouTube and my God the performance is just beautiful. Like many of you, I've been following FFXV for.. well, forever. And I've gotten to know a number of these music pieces quite well from the large number of trailers released over the years as well as the demos. So, hearing the music performed live flawlessly by the London Philharmonic Orchestra is a real treat. Especially since—like many of you—I've been wanted to get my hands on FFXV's original score for years now and it's almost unreal to think that some of these fantastic pieces are a number of years old and we still haven't yet had the chance to enjoy them in game, heh. That day is coming though.. soon, I hope. In the video you also here from the fantastic composer herself Yoko Shimomura as she leads some insight of the score and what her experience has been over the years with video games and as a young girl how she never thought she'd be composing music for a Final Fantasy game. They also reveal a new song for the first time called "Noctis".
Here the description from the video..

Watch the video already. It's simply great music and I do wish that more Video Game Studios try to showcase their music more like this.
