Bravo Gustavo

The LA philharmonic has a rock star conductor and an iPhone app/online game to match. Gustavo Dudamel, a 27 year old Venezuelan, has been conducting since his teenage years and is now trying to bridge the cultural gap between the philharmonic and it’s surrounding ethnic communities and their youth. In line with this new approach the game “Bravo Gustavo” is now available on iPhones and online . It’s a side scrolling rhythm action game where you cue in the different orchestra sections using either touch screen or keyboard. According to LA Philharmonic CEO Deborah Borda, the game garnered about 5,000 plays in the first 3 hours after its launch.

In conclusion I’m now calling that that “Harpsichord Hero” is soon to follow.
