Red Bull Music Academy presents 1UP: Cart Diggers Live
After the conclusion of the Diggin in the Carts documentary, and the Red Bull Music Academy was fully underway, a special event was devised as a tribute to video game music. The Cart Diggers Live event recap video featured the infamous Manabu Namiki, a composer that has been making music for over 20 years with a focus on creating music for “bullet hell” arcade games. As well as Yuzo Koshiro, known for his work in Streets of Rage, and the equally talented Chip Tanaka who has been making music since 1980. The event itself featured Music Academy Attendees, Chip Tanaka and established artists, culminating in a final tribute by Oneohtrix Point Never to Manabu’s music.
