Remix Showcase: Final Fantasy VI Aria di Mezzo Carattere

Back in 1994 the Super Nintendo Entertainment System was at its height when Squaresoft released Final Fantasy VI. The game carried one of the most revolutionary pieces of music written at the time being an operatic theme. So advanced, in fact, that the Sony developed SPC700 sound chip couldn’t actually produce a vocal track.

This remix maintains the spirit of the original piece while pushing the production into rock opera territory, any fans of queen’s bohemian rhapsody will be pleased with the amount of vocal harmonies being used as well as the guitar leads. Jake Kaufman’s piano playing is incredible while Tommy Pedrini’s vocal quality and range does the original piece justice. Highly recommended.

This is a pilot for this feature so any feedback will be very appreciated.
