SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X Preview Trailer


SEATTLE - August 18, 2017 -  Materia Collective is thrilled to present SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X , a massive 100-track tribute to the beloved PlayStation 2 RPG soundtrack by Nobuo Uematsu, Masashi Hamauzu, and Junya Nakano. Spread across two 50-track volumes titled Besaid Mix and Zanarkand Mix, SPIRA  will cover a variety of styles such as orchestral, electronic, and rock along with Bollywood, disco, gypsy punk, folk and irreverent chocobo choir. The large cast of musical talent includes Horizon Zero Dawn vocalist Julie Elven, composer Dale North, Pokémon Reorchestrated arranger Braxton Burks, the Triforce Quartet, and many others. SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X is fully licensed and available today:

"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 follows other well-received arrangement projects from Materia Collective including MATERIA: Final Fantasy VII Remixed and SUCCESSOR: Final Fantasy VIII Remixed. Given the size of this collection, fans can count on all of their favorite tracks being included, such as the highly emotional "Zanarkand," the beautiful vocal ballad, "Suteki da ne," and everyone's favorite metal track, "Otherworld."
