Materia Collective releases second album

The Materia Collective, originally founded shortly after the 2015 E3 announcement of the Final Fantasy VII remake, currently consists of almost 300 musicians who first joined up online to create MATERIA, a massive cover album for the soundtrack to VII.  Today, they released their second album entitled SUCCESSOR, a sequel album appropriately packed with arrangements of pieces from Final Fantasy VIII.


“Final Fantasy VIII is musically distinct, and its eclectic mix of music suited our diverse skillsets,” says Materia founder Sebastian Wolff. “Materia Collective prides itself in the talent and dedication of its artists, so the 3-month album production cycle wasn’t a problem. We hope listeners enjoy the result.”

Collaborators on the album include Dale North, Laura Intravia, Rozen, David Saulesco, Triforce Quartet, John Robert Matz, and the resulting album – featuring over 150 musicians from the Collective – consists of a wide range of music from jazz to classical to electronic, and everything in between (including a sea shanty and a barbershop quartet).

SUCCESSOR is available for purchase on iTunes and Loudr.

About the Author

A native and lifelong Texan, I currently work in software education while contributing news, reviews, and interviews to VGMO on the side. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement. Outside of VGMO, I enjoy playing piano, listening to classical music and film scores, and trying to go unnoticed in any stealth RPG I can find.
