  • One, two, three. 4

  • (Lively jazz music plays) 5

  • My name is Patrick Bartley. 6

  • I'm a saxophonist from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 7

  • My main work has been in jazz. 8

  • My biggest passion has been playing the music 9

  • of Japanese video game, anime, and pop music. 10

  • I would say the first system that I actually had, 11

  • owned myself, was a Sony PlayStation. 12

  • So I played like, Spyro the Dragon was like, my first game. 13

  • But I also had the privilege of being around 14

  • a lot of different other systems 15

  • because of, you know, family members or friends. 16

  • What? (laughs) 17

  • Some of the titles that really stick out to me... 18

  • Sonic the Hedgehog was probably just like, 19

  • the bread and butter. 20

  • (Sonic the Hedgehog music) 21

  • A good model of what music and visuals and stuff could be. 22

  • So I would think, Sonic, Streets of Rage, 23

  • Gran Turismo was big for me. 24

  • Tekken, I played a lot of Tekken 2. 25

  • That was my first fighting game ever. 26

  • Played some Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy X, 27

  • Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. 28

  • A lot of those games were a big, big part of me. 29

  • Whoa. 30

  • Oh, you can't get a shot of me getting beat by a computer! 31

  • (laughs) 32

  • Video games are kind of a big part of me getting into music. 33

  • When I was learning clarinet, 34

  • in addition to learning whatever they were teaching me, 35

  • I also wanted to learn these songs that I was hearing 36

  • that was affecting me, 37

  • so I would learn Sonic the Hedgehog, Green Hill Zone. 38

  • Put in the background, while it was running, 39

  • just like, play my clarinet along to it, 40

  • try to figure out the notes. 41

  • Whatever seven notes I knew on the clarinet, 42

  • let's try to... (laughs) 43

  • Use those to learn that music. 44

  • At the same time I was playing video games, 45

  • I was also watching anime, 46

  • so things like Dragon Ball Z. 47

  • Dragon Ball Z, yeah! 48

  • Dragon Ball Z! 49

  • So, I ended up learning a bunch of anime tunes, 50

  • I learned a bunch of video game tunes, 51

  • and that was a big deal for me, 52

  • because I was like, even though it's still just a hobby, 53

  • I'm seriously playing this music. 54

  • Like, I'm actually taking some time 55

  • that what I learned on the saxophone, 56

  • and bringing that to this music for people to listen to. 57

  • Come on, now. 58

  • How y'all doing, black cat? 59

  • (clapping and cheering) 60

  • And so that was the first kind of aha moment 61

  • I think I had in my head of wow, 62

  • I get to express myself doing this. 63

  • People like listening to jazz 64

  • cause it makes them feel sophisticated, 65

  • some people say it makes them feel chill, a good mood, 66

  • or it's expressive, and it's individual. 67

  • But then you put it with the music they grew up with, 68

  • like, today's Cole Porter, 69

  • like, our George Gershwin, our Jerome Kern, 70

  • like, these are the new standards, 71

  • and everybody knows this music. 72

  • So when they hear Super Mario Brothers ground theme, 73

  • but then you have like, saxophones and bass and drums, 74

  • and live music, like, improvising over chord changes, 75

  • making new melodies over these songs 76

  • that have melodies that are seen as immortal, 77

  • and you're making new immortal melodies on your own. 78

  • It's really crazy, 79

  • and so people really wanted to see that. 80

  • And that's when we knew that we had something. 81

  • Not just our personal expression that you wanted to do, 82

  • but also something that was 83

  • kind of essential for everybody else to also see. 84

  • We are celebrating, of course, the ultimate fighters, 85

  • like, some of the greatest fighting games in history, 86

  • and their respective soundtracks 87

  • that also have a fighting chance of being 88

  • some of the greatest music of all time. 89

  • The first song that we played was a song by Yu Miyake, 90

  • who was one of the composers for Tekken 4. 91

  • And that song was called Bit Crusher. 92

  • Fight! 93

  • (jazz band playing Bit Crusher) 94

  • The next one is a little lesser known. 95

  • It's called Darkstalkers. 96

  • And that song was called Green Screen, 97

  • which is the stage for two characters, 98

  • Rikuo, otherwise known as Aulbath, and Sasquatch. 99

  • (video game music) 100

  • (jazz band playing Green Screen) 101

  • The third song is actually from 102

  • one of my favorite games of all time, 103

  • and it has one of my favorite soundtracks, 104

  • from Marvel vs. Capcom 2. 105

  • I love it because this song called Clocktower Stage 106

  • is a very identifiable song for me. 107

  • It has a nice, simple melody that's reminiscent 108

  • of certain other George Gershwin type melodies, 109

  • or any jazz melodies. 110

  • (sings theme) 111

  • It has this nice melody you can identify, 112

  • you can attach yourself to. 113

  • (jazz band playing Clocktower Stage) 114

  • The next song is also from the lexicon of like, 115

  • the old Street Fighter and Darkstalkers kind of franchises, 116

  • but this is from Street Fighter III: Third Strike, 117

  • and it's one of the greatest games, 118

  • and one of the greatest soundtracks that we know of 119

  • of all time. 120

  • Tetsuya Shibata also did this one, 121

  • and this is called Jazzy NYC '99. 122

  • (jazz band playing Jazzy NYC '99) 123

  • I personally think this is probably the best way 124

  • to get the most amount of young people 125

  • into jazz as possible. 126

  • A lot of people can find parallels between 127

  • the world of video game music and jazz, 128

  • by that kind of personal expression, 129

  • that kind of individual expression, 130

  • the same kind of expression that you would have 131

  • by creating a character in World of Warcraft, 132

  • or creating a character in Soulcalibur or Final Fantasy. 133

  • You can have that same feeling about 134

  • creating your own character in the music. 135

  • That's really cool for me in any kind of way, 136

  • whether it's a simple fighting game, 137

  • or if it's a role playing game. 138

  • You know, these games mean a lot to us, 139

  • and they've done a lot for us in our lives. 140

  • My takeaway from those games 141

  • was being able to create a story, 142

  • create a world, create an ethos 143

  • around what I'm doing, 144

  • and expressing myself in that way. 145

  • I wanted to find out what was this thing 146

  • that meant so much to me, 147

  • and how it can affect other people? 148

  • What is this positive source of energy? 149

  • And video games really gave me 150

  • a really positive source of energy. 151

  • And I always wanted to have that feeling. 152

  • (applause and cheering) 153

  • All right, all right!
