The String Arcade (2014) ...Video game soundtrack pieces performed by string quartet ...
The String Arcade on Bandcamp ...
"The String Arcade is a recording of video game music, arranged for string quartet. This isn't an arbitrary (or novelty) collection of game music, but a well curated collection of music that works together thematically as a completed recording. We also hope to inspire young musicians with this recording by making a connection between video game music and 'classical' instruments such as violin, viola and cello..."Cello - Robin Reynolds
