The Music

Do you remember walking around in a forest again and again to level up with random enemy battles? Do you remember talking to village folk to get clues for your next quest? Classic 8-bit and 16-bit RPGs like the Final Fantasy series and Chrono Trigger filled the imagination of so many kids. The music was the aural landscape to the pixel-laden universe of the fantasy worlds.


Catch Malaysian guitar wizard Az Samad in a special performance at Makespace! Listen to atmospheric video game music on acoustic guitar including music from the Final Fantasy series and Chrono Trigger. Travel to dreamlike worlds with anime music from Studio Ghibli classics like Laputa and Princess Mononoke. In addition to these haunting renditions, be entranced by Az's percussive fingerstyle guitar pieces inspired by the playing Michael Hedges, Don Ross and Jon Gomm.


The Guitar Wizard

Az was the featured classical guitar soloist with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) for the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy Kuala Lumpur premiere conducted by Arnie Roth (USA) at their three sold-out shows. Az performed for the South East Asian premiere of A New World: Intimate Music from Final Fantasy at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas in Kuala Lumpur conducted by Arnie Roth (USA) and featuring pianist Benyamin Nuss (Germany). For the MPO Superheroes concert with conductor Guillaume Tourniaire and presenter Alasdair Malloy, Az played ukulele on the Handheld Heroes medley (Super Mario Bros Ground Theme, Tetris Korobeiniki Theme and Angry Birds Title Theme). He was the Space Jam Headliner at Comic Fiesta 2014 in Kuala Lumpur and was seen performing a 30-minute solo fingerstyle guitar set of video game music. Prior to moving back to Malaysia, Az also played in a video game music band in San Francisco. He has also been interviewed on GameSpot.com and featured in the GameSpot Asia Beat Podcast.


The Food Wizard

Raw Chef Yin will prove to you that healthy food can be yummy too! After all, she leveled up her culinary skills at the world’s first classically structured raw and plant-based culinary school. Be super energised by her delicious snacks which might just have something to do with gaming and anime!
