When I say Final Fantasy most would think of the video game. I think of Owen Pallett, the talented Torontonian musician who works magic with his violin and looping machine. He has arranged the strings on various albums including Arcade Fire, Beirut, and more
Not too long ago he played at the Hillside festival in Guelph and I missed it. Luckily enough this amazing video has surfaced on YouTube, capturing a moment that has given me chills. Chills because AH! there is so much rain and other kind of chills you get when you hear an amazing song and see how determined an artist can be to his craft. Just think how many others would have just walked off stage and complained.
Watch this in HD if you can so you can see all the rain.
* I’ll write another post all about Final Fantasy soon, but I thought this clip deserved a post of its own.Tweet
