In the most recent episode of Live/Play, one of NA’s own, Emman, showed off a piece he composed and conducted for SummonersCon!

Read on to learn about him, his work, and what he’s been up to since the con!

What have you been up to since SummonersCon?

Since SummonersCon, I've been putting together plans for taking The Summoners Orchestra to Mexico for a performance at Gamacon. We will be performing video game music alongside youth symphonies there. The ensemble will be conducted by guest conductors/composers (some still TBA).

TSO will be the opening performance, and we will be performing some LoL pieces for sure. I have also been invited to speak on a PAX West panel with other conductors/directors of video game ensembles from around the world.

I've been continually working with the La Verne Symphony Orchestra, a community orchestra based out of the University of La Verne. After the success of our last video game concert, we are currently in the process of planning some kind of video game music festival every year. This would take place during the spring. Unfortunately, that's as much as I know about that right now. I'm still working out details with that director.

Can we hear The Summoners Orchestra in action?

Where can we listen to more of your stuff?

My music can be found on YouTube, SoundCloud, and Loudr.

I've participated in the two Final Fantasy albums that the Materia Collective has put together.

I'm also currently in the process of scoring the game VentureVerse.

What’s next for you?

I'm currently leaving my job working at Disneyland in order to continue to pursue a career making music. "Jumping into the deep end" as everyone seems to refer to it. I'm simultaneously terrified and excited :P

Good luck, Emman! Don’t forget to check out his work using the links above and tell us about your favorite League-inspired works of art (music or otherwise) in the comments below!
