Montreal composer Maxime Goulet (Warhammer 40,000) wanted to do something really special to help celebrate the 375th anniversary of his city, which is home to more than 125 video game studios. He organized a spectacular concert, featuring music exclusively written for games made in Montreal. The concert is Friday, September 29th at the Place des Arts. As Maxime told me, it's a monumental project, but totally worth the effort.

On Friday, September 15th, the Yale Philharmonia is starting their new season with one of the most radical works ever written: Stravinsky's ballet, The Rite of Spring!

Kate Remington talked with conductor Peter Oundjian about the season opening concert, which also includes Mozart's Symphony No. 40, and Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis.

Grant Kirkhope says he was stunned when he found out that instead of a new Rabbids game, he'd be working on a totally new idea: Mario and Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. As he told me in our conversation, once he realized he'd be drawing on Koji Kondo's legendary music for Mario, he was in shock!
