A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of having an excerpt of some of Ambition: A Minuet In Power's score performed live by a quartet from the Royal College of Music at a chamber music concert in London.
The concert was focused on game music that could be performed by a string quartet, and our themes for the Bourgeoisie faction certainly qualified! While, unfortunately, none of us got attend the concert ourselves due to our work schedule (being an indie developer is extremely glamorous, as you can tell), we still have these photos and recordings of the event.
The Bourgeoisie pieces in Ambition are some tricky writing, and the pictured musicians only had a week or so to practice and prepare, which only makes their performances more impressive. Eventually, the game's recordings are planned to be recorded in the controlled environment of the studio, but something about a live performance in front of an audience brings us closer to the authentic experience of hearing this this style of music, flaws and all, in it's original performance context.
You can listen to the recording of the music from the concert here.
Thanks for reading our update, and have a great day!
All the best,
