Video game players know that the soundtrack to a game, much like a movie, is key to setting the mood and tempo of the action. Whether you’re playing “Skyrim,” “Legends of Zelda,” “World of Warcraft” or “Final Fantasy,” the music is as intricate, nuanced and recognizable as the games themselves. Gamers and music lovers alike can revel in the artful compositions during a one-of-a-kind, immersive concert experience tonight at the Arsht Center in Miami and tomorrow, May 17 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. For tickets and information, go to ArshtCenter.org and Kravis.org.
