PlayFest keeps on announcing tremendously juicy news, don’t miss it!
One of the activities planned for PlayFest is the showing of the documental Insert Coin, presented by David García, that talks about the creative process of videogames in Spain. This documental could be made thanks to crowdfunding donations and will be showcased in the PlayFest festival.
As the tradition that it has become, this year PlayFest brings to use again the best music from videogames and animation to the south of Spain. This year, also, the guests come with Spanish flavor. Are you going to miss it?
The animation and videogame music festival par excellence in Spain, PlayFest, will have its third edition between September 11st and 14th.
In July 2012, Akira Yamaoka came to Spain to take part in a beautiful concert that paid homage to animation and video game soundtracks.
On the last weekend of July 2012 I travelled all the way to the town of Úbeda, Jaén, to interview the amazing Akira Yamaoka, composer of the “Silent Hill” sound tracks in person.
He was there to take part in the Play Fest event, an event that gathered lots of important personalities from the world of soundtracks between July 23rd and 29th 2012. Yamaoka also took part in an orchestrated concert that will also be covered in another article.
Akira is widely known for his soundtrack work in the “Silent Hill” games, as well as his amazing guitar skills, and I just had to take advantage of this chance to ask some questions. Many fans and readers of musicJAPANplus submitted their questions, and the following are the chosen ones.
