  1. Thanks I plan to release another video before the end of the year! In the meantime please check out the albums soundcloud - you can see all previews from the album. If anyone has a preference of which track they'd like to see a video for, please let me know!
  2. Sakimoto listened to it - he said 'lol, that's damn cool!'. Just thought i'd share with you
  3. It's pretty great! Didn't think to use a 12-string guitar but it actually works quite well given Sakimoto's layered, complex scores for his FF stuff. If it's ok I'll send this piece to him when I get a chance.
  4. Thanks! If you're into piano then you should check out Casey's other albums - the FFXII piano album and Valkyria Chronicles piano pieces. They were all edited together from multiple takes. Could you tell? We recorded the whole album in 12 hours (over 2 days).

Grandia (ft. With Ether) "My goal as an arranger is to do more than just stir up nostalgia," reflects lead arranger Casey Ormond. "Instead, I focus on experimenting with and combining iconic themes to spark the listeners' imagination, creating new thematic and musical narratives. This is a method that I have refined through my piano works--Piano Collections FINAL FANTASY XII and Valkyria Chronicles Piano Pieces--and I hope that you enjoy discovering and rediscovering the classic music of the fifth generation of consoles!" Additional arrangers include lead Valkyria Chronicles orchestrator Nicole Brady, Tristan Coelho, and guitar duo With Ether, who have recorded an energetic medley from Grandia. The production of Legacy Sessions: GAME Generation 5 has been headed by producer Demetri Potiris, who has worked with both the Eminence Symphony Orchestra and the renowned sound studio of Hitoshi Sakimoto, Basiscape. His experience producing live game music events and recording sessions for original soundtracks like the Tactics Ogre remake, Tekken 6, and the Valkyria Chronicles series sparked his desire to produce Legacy Sessions, which has been planned as a series that will explore other gaming generations, including the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. If you have any questions or comments on the album, it's production or game music in general, please let us know here!
