Phoenix Down RPG
Grab your game controllers and gather by the CRT TV, it’s time for a trip down memory lane! We have an eclectic set of video game music from Sega to Switch, Gameboy to NES and more. Sit back and enjoy as we play electrifying arrangements of video game music favorites with classically infused flair for an unforgettable evening.
Engaging, dynamic, and innovative, Phoenix Down RPG challenges the boundaries of Classical Music, bringing music into communities in unconventional settings. The ensemble specializes in alternative classical music, new music, and geek chic. A favorite at pop culture conventions, Phoenix Down RPG arranges hundreds of tunes and performs music from classic video games and nerdy culture with classically infused flair. The ensemble has performed and presented panels at Ohayocon, Rathacon, CinCityCon, GDEX, and was a featured guest of Origins/GDEX in 2022. Additionally, Phoenix Down RPG strives to bring classical music influence into nerd culture by composing and recording albums of tabletop gaming music, including Dragon Ballad Volumes I, II and III. Our Dungeons and Dragons music tracks have been described as ranging from “quirky hip-hop to foot-dragging zombie-paced dirges and medieval pastiches that recall the work of early 1970s English folk outfit Amazing Blondel.” In January 2019, the ensemble unleashed its latest thrilling performance of combining live tabletop gaming with interactive and improvisatory music at conventions and community performances.
