[Update] Skyrim’s Soundtrack To Be Performed Live In London Without Composer’s Involvement

Update: Skyrim's composer, Jeremy Soule, took to his official Facebook group to voice his displeasure over the live orchestra concert of the game. He said:

Concert? What concert???

Anyone that knows me also knows that I care passionately about the integrity of my music. Skyrim took years for me to compose and it was constructed very carefully. Today, I'm seeing reports of a concert of "Skyrim". This is the first I've heard of it. For the record, this concert has nothing to do with me, nor are they are using any of my original scores. They had to transcribe whatever notation they are performing by ear from the recordings. This is a flawed process as transcriptions are always fraught with errors. To be sure, I don't know who these people are and I don't endorse a concert that is trading on my name and music that has absolutely no oversight or involvement on my part. For my fans, I just want you to know what you're getting if you pay to attend this concert. Be wary.

Original Story (September 30 at 04:59 p.m. Central):

Celebrating the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, Bethesda, with UK concert promoter Senbla, is hosting a live orchestra of the game's soundtrack in London on November 16.

Held at the London Palladium, tickets go on sale on October 4 at 10 AM local time through Ticketmaster UK for those wanting to hear Skyrim's great soundtrack performed live. Game Informer's Andrew Reiner praised the music in the game, stating it was "one of [his] favorite soundtracks ever" in his review for the 2011 release.

Our Take
Skyrim's fantastic and iconic orchestral score and continued popularity make it a great fit for a live concert, even in 2016. However, the lack of Soule's involvement will likely prove disappointing to fans. – The Feed

You Can Now Buy Doom’s Amazing Soundtrack

If you wanted to own the superb Satanic songs from Doom, you were out of luck. That suffering ends now since Doom's soundtrack went on today sale on iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify.

Doom's perfect blend of metal and electronic tones gave it its own signature sound that matched the gameplay tempo and tone. While it is a shame that it took so long to be unshackled from the game and available outside of YouTube rips, it's good to see Doom flaunt one of its best aspects.
