Materia Collective releases SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X

Today, Materia Collective releases the latest in their lineup of collaborative arrange albums with SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X, featuring the iconic work of trio Nobuo Uematsu, Masashi Hamauzu, and Junya Nakano. Because the project spans 100 tracks in length, SPIRA has been broken down into two 50-track albums: Besaid Mix and Zanarkand Mix, which can be purchased separately. Featured artists of SPIRA include Horizon Zero Dawn‘s Julie Elven, Pokémon Reorchestrated‘s Braxton Burks, composer Dale North, and both the Triforce Quartet and the Videri String Quartet, alongside many others.

“The Final Fantasy X soundtrack already contains a lot of variations on a few common themes,” say project organizers Joe Chen and VGMO’s own Emily McMillan. “All of our artists aimed to do something new on their tracks. 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 available on all major storefronts including iTunes (Besaid Mix, Zanarkand Mix), Bandcamp, and Spotify. For more information, visit Materia Collective’s official website.
