Last year, I had the oppertunity to check out Distant Worlds: The Music of Final Fantasy (which is coming to Toronto Saturday March 31). The tickets were a gift, my girlfriend loves the series, so why not.
And I completely enjoyed myself.
As a music nut, it was hard not to be impressed by the skill of the musicians involved as well as the music itself. Fast forward to this week and I got the chance to talk to Arnie Roth. Arnie's not a household name but his a Grammy winner, he's worked with everyone from the Irish Tenors to Barbie (ok...maybe not worked with but he did do the score for a number of Barbie films) and he's the conductor/arranger on the current Distant Worlds tour.
We spoke for around 24 minutes and one thing was made clear, he really loves the music he's performing.
