Hi! this is the thread for a ff9 oratorio I'm doing(Rebirth of the Crystal)

An oratorio is a form of baroque period music. I want to give final fantasy ix that kind of treatment because of the medieval feel of the game example: Bach's Christmas Oratorio

"So, are you playing the music in the video you posted, or did you modify it in any way?"

answer: fleshed it out in Sibelius 7 & ScoreCloud, then ran it thru Komplete Ultimate 9.

It's a good thing it's sorta familiar to you, because I didn't wanna modify it beyond the recognition of FF9 veterans.

Trust me, you haven't seen anything yet...I'm gonna gear up a whole Kickstarter(hopefully, with enough funding I can take this project live), make a special release trailer, etc. I wanna spread my FF9 project to as many people as humanly possible. after that, I'll take a break for a few months, then start on my Assassin's Creed Opera Project.

Hi catherinethegreat21 and a belated welcome to the forums to you :)

This is a very interesting project you've got, and it sounds like you're doing a pretty good job of arranging the music so far! However, your tumblr link is apparently private (I couldn't access it without logging in, and I don't personally have a tumblr account) and it would be nice if you could provide easier-to-access examples of your work than a tindeck link on your Facebook page. If you could embed a YouTube video or Soundcloud audio here demoing your work you might get a bit more exposure. Also, since this is a thread about a musical work of yours, I've moved it to the Spira > Luca section instead of FF Miscellaneous.

Carry on :busta:

This is really nice sounding stuff. I love the idea, it definitely makes sense to do FF IX music in this style. I had a little difficultly recognizing some of the themes, probably because I only played IX fairly recently and am not as familiar with the soundtrack, but I absolutely loved the Gulug Volcano section. The Earth Cave/Gurgu Volcano theme in FF I was one of my favorites, so it was a real treat to hear it in this style.

ff9 thread reboot

would you, or would you know of anyone who loves ff9 and would be willing to take on the Role of Assistant Creative director(assist me with creative direction and the campaigns for the CD through to the Premiere, as well as supervise staff) for this whole Project through to when this project gets it's opening night on stage? I need an assistant creative director mostly because I can't really organize and coordinate stuff all that well. interested? or do you know someone that is?


P.S. I'm not worrying about the staging part now though. let's see how the CD does first.
