A video from YouTube user Caleb Goss shows how Super Smash Bros. Melee would sound with a live score. Goss transcribed a melody, allowing jazz drummer Andrew Barhite to use his kit to emphasize each landed attack and creating a thrilling accompaniment to the frantic action of Smash Bros. Choosing to play over footage of a match between professional Swedish players Armada and Leffen, it’s a feat in itself that Barhite could even keep up with the frenetic pace of a pro Melee game. Plus, it’s always a treat to watch Leffen, one of the world’s cockiest players, get absolutely destroyed. You can watch the performance above.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
