“The Final Fantasy X soundtrack already contains a lot of variations on a few common themes, 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.” said project organizers Joe Chen and Emily McMillan.
SPIRA also includes other well-received arrangement projects from Materia Collective such as MATERIA: Final Fantasy VII Remixed and SUCCESSOR: Final Fantasy VIII Remixed. Within this immense size of collection, fans shouldn’t be worry that their favorite tracks will be missed, like the highly emotional “Zanarkand,” the beautiful vocal ballad, “Suteki da ne,” and everyone’s favorite metal track, “Otherworld.”.
