With excitement mounting for the imminent launch of Final Symphony, the stunning new album of Final Fantasy concert music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, producer Thomas Böcker sits down with popular Brazilian gaming website, Hadouken, for a lengthy chat about what makes this new recording so special.
In heading to the world famous Abbey Road Studios to record the album, Böcker has this to say:
“Abbey Road Studios is a place of musical history: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elton John - they all recorded there, and all of them are musical heroes of Nobuo Uematsu. In my opinion, it was always a dream of his to come to Abbey Road. The acoustics are stunning, simply perfect, especially for the sound we wanted for our album: precise, warm and rich.”
Böcker also goes on to talk about the creation of some his earliest concert productions and collaborations, as well as revealing some of his hopes and plans for the future. You can read the whole interview now over at Hadouken (part 1 and part 2).
Final Symphony will be available Mastered for iTunes from February 23, as well as other leading digital retailers, including Amazon MP3 and Google Play Music.
