I guess I am running off abit from my blog besides food but I really really really must blog about this awesome live stage performance. ROCKCAPPELLA by FORK. At first when we wanted to go watch the show, every one is skeptical, even me by asking who are they. Some of my friends also have a thought that aiya, singing live just pop in and enjoy then.

As they are out from the stage performing their first songs all of us thought that its very normal as they are hitting off with old songs. Right after the first song one of the performer told us that what we heard just now is all live and without any support of music instruments and sound effect. Then it had made my jaw drop with those awesome base and background music.

Later he explained that, 4 of them, Mia Hafrén and Jonte Ramsten, former police cadet Kasper Ramström and vocalist Anna Asunta have combine talent to make the whole group work as they have been working together for 15 years and performing world wide. Fresh from Finland and flying all the way to Malaysia to do their first ever stage performance with all of them have talent to sing, beat boxing and its not just only ordinary Rockcappella,as they are more than that.

A series of combination with Rock music, contemporary cover and humorous stand-up comedy that just blast us off and make our night a blast.

Staging might be small as I went to Google and check their other performance, and definitely PJLA Theater with the lighting and sound effect had made the whole performance to another level.

This is one of the most funny part that he came out with fake  rock long hair. . .

I am really amaze with this guy, as most of the heavy base and tune are coming out from him by beatboxing. In my thought, oh my.. now I have seen another great beatboxer and what willl happen to our local scene beat boxer.

Video Game Live (VGL) this round is being held at Istana Budaya, that had attracted many gamers to attend on this event. VGL had been held in Malaysia for a couple of years already and this is their returning show. They never had the same performance as when they are going to hold a show in the country, they will ask their fans what kind of music they would want the team to play over Facebook, email or forums (which is pretty interesting).

With all the selected songs or themes from the games are based on the fans therefore they are playing accordingly.

This round of Video Game Live in Malaysia 2012 have Emmanuel Fratianni as the orchestra conductor. Then Tommy Tallarico, the creator of Video Games Live is there with his cool electric guitar performance. Besides that, they do have lead vocalist and flutist “Flute Link” Laura Intravia and special invite guest Norihiko Hibino. From all that, one thing that I am proud off is the whole orchestra team is all handpick by them and all from MAlaysia. 😀

It was a cool performance from the team and one thing if you attend this VGL is that you must play alot alot and alot of games to know which track is which track. I am 80% lost but enjoying the performance from the best of them . .;)

In between they do have games to ask audience to come out and play and there are one game that impress alot of people is the Guitar Hero which from this young guy he played hard core level and the dots that are flowing down is like raining. Wonder how he press all together and he manage to score 370k games score and above which is seriously impressive!!!
