See Why Critics Everywhere Are Calling This Video Game Event Beyond Beautiful

Witness a video game come alive as an art form at this unique show! On Saturday, February 11th, Georgia Tech will present Journey set to a beautiful score and live audience participation. Gamers and cultural aficionados alike are sure to enjoy this immersive experience at Ferst Center For the Arts.

During this special event, the video game Journey – which has been described by critics as “the most beautiful game of its time” – takes center stage as Chicago-based Fifth House Ensemble teams up with composer Austin Wintory to present an original, interactive live performance of his Grammy-nominated score. Meanwhile, audience members will play the game on stage. The calming, beautiful and emotional video game comes to life in an interactive environment.

According to the game’s own website, “Journey is an interactive parable, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person’s life passage and their intersections with others.” The evening-length program will never sound the same as each performance; every decision by the live player results in a unique musical outcome within Wintory’s haunting, mystical score.

Praised by the New York Times for its “conviction, authority, and finesse,” the Chicago-based Fifth House Ensemble harnesses the collaborative spirit of chamber music to reach beyond the traditionally-perceived limits of classical music. The ensemble’s artistic, educational, and civic programs engage theater groups, video game designers, corporate innovators, and folk bands to share stories as diverse as the communities it serves.
