Materia Collective, the Seattle-based music publisher, has just released SPIRA: Music From Final Fantasy X. It’s a large rearrangement album featuring interesting remixes of the wonderful music of Final Fantasy X. In fact, it’s such a large collection that it’s been split into two parts: the Besaid Mix, and the Zanarkand Mix. You can check out a lovely musical preview down below.
The album is a large-scale collaboration featuring the talents of multiple musicians and fans of Final Fantasy music, including some names from OverClocked Remix. The remixed tracks span a variety of genres, including jazz, acoustic, electronic, and rock.
‘”The Final Fantasy X soundtrack already contains a lot of variations on a few common themes,” note project organizers Joe Chen and Emily McMillan. “We wanted to create a listening experience where it didn’t feel like you’re listening to ‘Hymn of the Fayths’ 20 times in a row, so all of our artists aimed to do something new on their track. For example, some artists arranged in an unfamiliar style, while others incorporated unique instrumentation. As a result, both SPIRA albums re-frame the classic themes from Final Fantasy X with a fresh perspective.”‘
SPIRA: Music From Final Fantasy X is now available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
