Live gaming concert: »Let’s Play«

Gaming with live music: the successful streamer Staiy plays live in the Grand Hall – accompanied by an orchestra and a Foley artist.

There’s never been anything like it in the Elbphilharmonie: gaming with live music! Broadcast in real time on a big screen, the online streamer Staiy played live on stage in the Grand Hall – together with a live orchestra and Foley artist.  

»Music is really important when you’re gaming. But when I imagine the sound and vibrations coming from an orchestra behind me, I think I might actually cry,« said Staiy, happy to be on his first visit to the hall. He didn’t end up crying during the three live gaming concerts, but it was certainly a special experience.

Staiy, who has more than 300,000 followers who regularly watch his gaming broadcasts on the platform Twitch, played two award-winning games on the Elbphilharmonie stage: »Journey« follows a figure in a cape with tricky puzzles to solve and tasks to complete on a voyage to a towering mountain in the distance. In »Lost Ember«, there is a wolf that can slip into the body and mind of other animals, and wanders around the ruins of a civilisation trying to unravel the mystery of its downfall.

The Ensemble Reflektor came up with just the right soundscape with a rich orchestral sound and Foley artist Simone Nowicki, who regularly brings (live) radio plays to life and creates goosebump moments in films.
