Want to Meet Final Fantasy's Composer?

You need to be in Seattle from July 9 to 11, and you need a hundred bucks. The Seattle Symphony is giving a three-day performance of Final Fantasy's score, and Nobuo Uematsu will be attending.

"Distant Worlds" will be performed July 9 at 7:30 pm and July 10 and 11 at 8 pm. The Grammy Award-winning Arnie Roth is the program's conductor. Tickets are $25. For $100, you can get into a meet-and-greet reception with Uematsu following the performances.

Uematsu has composed video game music going back to 1985, and is widely regarded as the John Williams of video game soundtracks. He composed the scores for all of the Final Fantasy titles, and also did the music for 3D Worldrunner, whose tink-tink-tink chiptone I can still recall, for some reason.
