What’s better than playing Super Mario Maker? Playing Super Mario Maker while having an orchestra perform the soundtrack for you, of course!
In a cute attempt of recreating the experience of playing the Wii U game in a living room, if your living room happened to have a giant projector screen and a stage dedicated to musicians and a concertmaster, L’Orchestre de Jeux Vidéo (Orchestra of Video Games) in Montreal, or OJV for short, accompanied a gamer playing one of the levels by GiantBomb.
As any game soundtrack would, the orchestra changed their matched their melodies to the events happened in the game, e.g. when Mario fell of a cliff and cleared a level.
Be sure to check the other performances by the orchestra, like their Super Mario Bros. medley, if you’re now in a Mario mood.
