NYFF: ‘Live from Los Santos’ Music of Grand Theft Auto V (Photos)

Alchemist

If you haven’t heard about Grand Theft Auto V yet, its surprising given that the game’s newest iteration has had over $1 billion in sales in just a matter of weeks. For their game, Rockstar Games has gone all out in compiling an in-game soundtrack, releasing three album/compilations from the more than forty-hours of music that can be heard on various game radio stations. Original score and songs were crafted by Tangerine Dream, Flying Lotus, Twin Shadow and many others. And to celebrate the release of the game and the music, Rockstar partnered with the Film Society of Lincoln Center to present the unique ‘Live from Los Santos’ concert, with performances of the game’s score, live with a visual backdrop of scenes from the game, at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York. This last minute addition to the New York Film Festival also included an afterparty at (le) Poisson Rouge, featuring DJ sets from Flying Lotus and Giles Peterson but we only have pictures from the church below as well as the game’s trailer and the playlist of songs Flying Lotus selected for his in-game station. You can Browse the three disc’s worth of songs that are on the official soundtrack and purchase the album online now, but if you are patient, Rockstar filmed the concert, so maybe there will be a commercial release of it in the near future.
