Jeremy Soule Confirms Malukah For Skyrim Concert

Malukah, whose cover of "The Dragonborn Comes" made a huge splash on YouTube, has agreed to appear at Jeremy Soule's proposed Skyrim concert.

Jeremy Soule's planned Skyrim concert just keeps on getting cooler. In case you missed it, the Skyrim composer took to Facebook last week seeking support for a live performance of music from Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim by a "world-renowned orchestra" in New York City. He hinted pretty strongly that he'd conduct the event and might even perform some of the music himself.

The concert has yet to be confirmed - and that makes this a good place to suggest that you nip around to Facebook and give the idea a "like" - but if it does go down, Malukah, whose stirring rendition of "The Dragonborn Comes" made a huge splash on YouTube but who may actually be better known to Escapist users for her great duet with Miracle of Sound on "Legends of the Frost," will be there.

"Update! I have great news!" Soule wrote today on his Facebook page. "Malukah (whose performance of 'Dragonborn Comes' is nearing 10 million plays!!) has agreed to appear at the proposed New York concert!"

"I am also planning to make a new orchestration for Malukah which will be premiered at the concert," Soule wrote in the comments section following the announcement. "A choir will be present for the performance!"

He also confirmed - again, assuming it actually happens - that there will be a meet-and-greet at the concert, and that there will be helmets.

Yup. Let's make this happen, people.

Oh man, that'll be awesome.

I love her cover.

I didn't like her cover, but it's nice to see she's getting recognition.

It will be the greatest nerd concert of all time. ALL TIME. Too bad I can't come. I'm hoping for a live streaming though.

So it's a Skyrim concert, and not an Elder Scrolls concert? Booooooo.

Yeah, I know I'm being nitpicky, this just bugs me.

I think you missed something when you read the article.

OT: This would be awesome to attend. Shame that there is no way that I would be able to go to NYC just for this. Loved Malukah's covers, but while 'The Dragonborn Comes' cover was really good, her 'Age of Oppression' cover was fantastic. If only MoS would be there as well, then I would definitely have to come up with a way to attend.

I knew that when I posted, but it still bugs me.

I guess some of Jeremy's music from KOTOR would be too much to ask for, then? (not to mention completely unrelated to Skyrim, but come on :D)

But this is awesome news! I hope I can go...

Pretty much exactly what I was going to say: Don't get why people made such a fuss over her, but it's always good when somebody gets a lucky break.

:) This is good news. Hope we can hear/see it all soon.

Glad to hear it, and awesome. Lets hope there is a live stream or something.

Never played an Oblivion game in my life, but this girl's voice almost makes me want to throw cash for a copy of Skyrim right now. Almost.

YESSSSSS! Something close to home!

When is it happening? Can I buy tickets?

Please, please a livestream! Take my money, dammit!

Sweet! I absolutely loved her cover, she sang it exceptionally well in my opinion, and her use of echo (reverb?) was well implemented. I'll definitely look for this concert on Youtube or something after it shows.

Okay, that's it, I am moving to the USA. There should better be some guy recording this with a cell-phone camera somewhere.

According to actual musicians I've talked to, Jeremy Soule is supposedly a massive hack. I guess I can see why 'proper' musicians might see it that way -- much in the same vein that people would say John Williams is a hack.

But, my god, the music from Morrowind is by far the greatest I've ever heard in a video game. Not just the main theme (which is sublime), but a lot of the exploration music which they brought back for Skyrim.

Eh, I don't like her songs all that much. I would've preferred Gav to go there, but still, good for her.

So, this New York, that in Germany?

Wow. Congratulations to Malukah. It's been just over a year since she released her Skyrim cover too.

Oblivion game

I can tell. It's the Elder Scrolls series, Oblivion was the fourth installment in that series.

But on topic, sounds great; I liked the post, the only annoying part for me is that it's in New York. Just hoping they record it and sell a DVD copy.

God damn it, I hate it when I do that.

I'm so pleased for Malukah; that must be a dream come true!
