A few hundred years ago, English playwright William Shakespeare wrote: "If music be the food of Genshin Impact fans, play on". Alright, so the quote might not have been exactly that, but HoYoverse's global blockbuster game has enticed fans not only with its lush landscapes and intricate character designs, but also with music that has delighted players, especially if they like tunes of the JRPG sort.
Genshin Impact fans can prick up their ears for the Genshin Concert 2022, which takes place this Sunday, October 2. The event will be around 75 minutes long and features "authentic renditions and creative adaptations of iconic Genshin Impact soundtracks".
The Genshin Concert has Shiro Sagisu, who has served as music producer and composer on anime such as Neon Genisis Evangelion, as music director, and the Hollywood Chamber Orchestra will give symphonic performances conducted by Eimear Noone who has composed music for video games such as Hearthstone, Diablo 3, and The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD. A trailer for the concert can be seen below:
"The original Genshin Impact soundtracks fit perfectly into the actual in-game scenes and ambience, and also provide much to imagine beyond the game," said Sagisu. "Together with the HOYO-MiX team and global artists, we've tried different touches to the music, weaving elements of pop music, rock, and jazz into it. Hopefully, we can create a refreshing and fun experience for the players".
Genshin Impact is an open-world RPG that is free-to-play and popular with million of players around the world who journey online through its fantastical world of Teyvat. This world is brought to life with different music for its various regions too, which "aim to depict the diversity of regions, cultures, and people in the world". The game will be releasing its thirteenth album which will collect the music from the rainforest region of Sumeru, the game's newest area.
The Genshin Concert 2022 will be free to watch at 12 noon (UTC +8) on October 2 on the official Genshin Impact YouTube channel.
