EMI Classics and Video Games Live today announced that they will be collaborating on a CD. Titled Video Games Live: Volume One, the album will feature songs from Kingdom Hearts, Tetris, Castlevania among many others. The CD has been compiled by Video Games Live co-creators Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall with performances by the Slovak National Orchestra, The Crouch End Festivaal Chorus and Martin “The Video Game Pianist” Leung.

“If Beethoven were alive today, he would probably be a video-game composer… he was always ahead of the curve,” said Video Games Live co-creator Tommy Tallarico. “One of his goals in creating music was to control the emotions of the person listening to it. This is exactly what we as game composers are constantly trying to accomplish.”
