Visiting That Game Orchestra

Today I'm just back from visiting That Game Orchestra, a group of 12 young musicians (4 violins, viola, cello, bass, 2 flutes, bassoon, piano and percussion) dedicated to playing video game music. I sat through their rehearsal and we had a long talk afterwards—guess we could be collaborating soon! 

On the way to São Paulo I had a weird dream on the bus—during Daylight Savings all instruments would transpose up one semitone.

Those guys know what's good—not a single transposing instrument aside from the bass (and it's an octave transposition, so we're cool). It's an arranger's dream!
