Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY

A new world-wide Final Fantasy concert tour has been announced called "Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY." The concert is going to be conducted by grammy award winning artist Arnie Roth, the same person who conducted "Dear Friends: music from FINAL FANTASY" in 2004 and 2005. Distant Worlds is meant to honor the 20th anniversary of the Final Fantasy series.

The concert will eventually make its way around the world, but so far only 2 dates have been announced. The premiere will be held on December 4th of this year in Stockholm, Sweden, and the United States debut will be held in Chicago on March 1st, 2008.

I Want Your Recordings

I'm looking to add a lot more recordings to this site. If you have any recording of yourself (or others, with their permission) playing any kind of video game music, on any kind of instrument, no matter how good or bad the recording is, I want it. It can be in almost any audio or video format, or even a YouTube video is perfectly fine. Just email them to me at [email protected]. Simply attach the files to the email and tell me what it is a recording of and the name you want me to credit you with. If it's a YouTube/MySpace/Google Video/Daily Motion/Whatever video, just give me a link to it and I will handle the rest. I plan on making some recordings of my own in the near future, but I hope to get a lot more from you all as well.

Final Fantasy 7: Voices of the Lifestream

Posted in Reviews

If you're a fan of OC ReMix, then you probably know all about this album. If not, then you should probably check out their site. OC ReMix is a community of video game music fans who arrange, interpret, record and mix their favorite video game music in MP3 format. They have almost 1,500 remixes, from a very wide spectrum of games and platforms.

Last month, they released Final Fantasy 7: Voices of the Lifestream, an entire album devoted to the legendary game, which has some of the most memorable video game music ever. As with everything that comes from OC ReMix, the album is completely free. It contains 45 arrangements arranged by over 40 different artists. It covers all genres of music, including rock, jazz, classical, techno and much more. Some tracks even include recorded vocals!

This thing is a masterpiece. It represents the spirit of the game music community, and how far it has come in the past few years in terms of the passion, creativity, devotion and popularity. When I first began listening to this album, I could not get rid of the chills. The nostalgia factor in this album is high, be warned.
