Game Music Central announced the release of Best of the Best: A Tribute To Game Music, a compilation CD featuring 18 music tracks by the composers of God of War, EverQuest, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Hitman, Jade Empire, King Kong, Myst, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, Lord of the Rings, Outcast, Rayman, SOCOM and World of Warcraft. This Collector’s Edition CD includes a six-page booklet with photographs and printed autographs from the 20 featured composers.
“Game Music Central is a great place for gamers and game music composers to connect,” says Tommy Tallarico, composer and co-executive producer of Video Games Live. “Game Music Central has videos of the composers in recording studios and message boards where gamers can interact with the composers themselves and actually ask their favorite composer a question.”
For Game Music Central’s first game soundtrack release, 20 award-winning videogame composers recorded all-new performances of music inspired by some of the most popular videogames of all time, including God of War, Super Mario Bros., World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy, Super Metroid, Earthworm Jim, Medal of Honor, Kingdom Hearts, and more.
The CD is available exclusively at www.gamemusiccentral.com, a new online music store and community dedicated to people with a passion for games and game music.
