Valley of the Fallen Star (Final Fantasy VII)

June 12th, 2008

This particular track is from one of the most famous videogame soundtracks of all time, yet again from the legendary Nobuo Uematsu and the Final Fantasy Series. As with “You’re Not Alone!”, Valley of the Fallen Star has something of a history with The Red Wings, and has been recorded a whopping three times. This time is final. We swear.

As it is, we are very, very happy with what we came out with. This remake was more of a test-bed for our new synth technology than anything, and this latest version includes a piano introduction, full strings, and is actually two pieces in one – this track is actually a slight medley (in the loosest terms) of “Great Warrior” and “Cosmo Canyon” from the Final Fantasy VII soundtrack.

Despite this being one of my earliest efforts with synth, keyboards and all that jazz, we’re still pretty proud of this particular mix. This piece is one of my personal favourites from Final Fantasy VII, too, so I’m glad we didn’t screw it up.

Did you know?
This track includes several themes from Final Fantasy VII – the theme of party member Red-XIII, his father Seto, and his hometown, Cosmo Canyon. The game actually features three versions of what is essentially the same piece for each character/location, slightly edited. This arrangement attempts to capture parts of all three.
