about

Final Fantasy VII was my gateway, not only into RPG's, but also into a mild obsession with several genres of anime, and by proxy Japanese Pop and Rock (or "Rokku" in the Japanese transliteration) music during my formative years as a musician. One of the things that I've always loved about J-pop and rock is their willingness to shamelessly blend Jazz, Rock, Pop, Retro and Electronic elements into these infectious cultural touchstones. Furthermore, while the whole FFVII soundtrack is a masterpiece, I always enjoyed the quirky, lighthearted pieces in the various rest areas, like Gold Saucer, the Chocobo themes, and Costa Del Sol. As soon as I found out about the Materia Tribute album, I knew that I wanted to pay homage to Costa Del Sol, both for its chillax, Bossa Nova vibe, but also for my later journeys into J-pop/rock, with all of its quirks. I want to thank each of the wonderful musicians that contributed and made this happen, and as always, my family for their unending support.
