The Music of Final Fantasy

nobuo_uematsu

Just a quick shoutout to Nobuo Uematsu. I just got my hands on the first 2 Black Mages albums and they burn the house down. The next DVD will be released on March 25, 2009. I find it amusing that he was persuaded to join The Black Mages, the rock band formed to put the rock into Final Fantasy compositions.

As always, I don’t like to rehash things that have been written or done by other sites especially where Final Fantasy is concerned since there are 7.5million sites on the subject. So, if you want to know more about Uematsu, these are the links:

  1. Unofficial Nobuo Uematsu site (fan tribute)
  2. Nobue Uematsu on Wikipedia
  3. Uematsu’s Music: The Black Mages
  4. Nobuo Uematsu’s company blog: Smile Please (in Japanese) 

And as bonus, Vamo Alla Flamenco from Final Fantasy IX, the last of the series on PS1 console. Those who’ve played this game would remember the mini-game where this song was used.
