Orchestra to play Dwarf Fortress generated music
« on: October 17, 2018, 01:55:38 am »

Just in case people don't ever venture over to Reddit. This thread is tremendously awesome news. I think.

On November 18th, there will be a live performance of music "composed using the in-game procedural music descriptions as guidelines".

Brave orchestra...

There has been music written and played to the procgen description before, but never almost half an hour of an entire orchestra playing it. I very much hope that it is recorded. It is amazing.

Can’t wait to hear this!

For those who are wondering status, on the reddit from the main guy::
“It went well! With a little luck, I'll have collected enough useful bits of recordings from last night that I can put together some of this live performance to share with reddit/youtube/etc.”

From what I've seen of their reddit, their representative did not get recordings of the event - which is now over. Looks like whatever they made exists only as the memories of those who heard it
