OC ReMix Presents Final Fantasy: Random Encounter!

June 18, 2012

Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA... OverClocked ReMix today released its 35th arrangement album, Final Fantasy: Random Encounter. The album pays tribute to the original Final Fantasy, released by Square in 1987 for the Nintendo Famicom (a.k.a. the Nintendo Entertainment System). Featuring twenty-one tracks from twenty artists, Random Encounter represents the second directorial endeavor of Brandon Strader and is available for free download at http://encounter.ocremix.org.

Random Encounter sports a diverse roster of musicians, showcasing veterans and newcomers from video game music communities OverClocked ReMix and The Shizz. The original Final Fantasy was the breakout game soundtrack for the then 28-year-old Nobuo Uematsu, who quickly became one of the most renowned game composers of all time. Album musicians honored Uematsu's influential soundtrack by arranging it in a number of styles, with a strong focus on guitar and heavy metal. Random Encounter was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Square Enix; all original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"For the last two years, a group of brothers united in metal worked together to create the most brutal album to ever grace the halls of OverClocked ReMix. This album is the result of three things: 1) an immense love for Nobuo Uematsu and his work, 2) an immense love for metal, and 3) the kind of comraderie that only the most grim and frostbitten of metalheads will ever know," said director Brandon Strader. "Words can't express the level of gratitude I have for everyone who helped this album become what it is today. We're very happy with this album, and I personally consider most of these remixes to be the definitive fan-remix versions of these classic songs."
