Final Fantasy VII Music Arrangement Spotlight

by November 23, 2011 3 comments

This is the first installment where we look to bring some attention to some of the many remixes of Final Fantasy VII music that you may not be familiar with. The first song we’ve decided to feature is one that fits the theme of our site particularly well: The Lifestream Overture. This arrangement was created by OCRemixer, Reuben Kee.

Running at 18 mins and 26 seconds, The Lifestream Overture flows through most of the familiar Final Fantasy VII songs in a beautiful rendition of the classic tunes of the game. It provides a unique feel of passing through many of the different emotions and locations throughout the world of Gaia, much like the flow of the Lifestream through the Planet itself. You can listen to the song via download located below, or by using the streampad banner at the bottom of the page. Also, feel free to drop a comment, and let us know if you have any suggestions for a future Music Arrangement Spotlight!

In closing, we also wanted to this post to serve as a memorial for the song’s creator- Reuben Kee, who passed away four years ago today, at the incredibly young age of 23. I can think of no better way to honor the memory of this talented individual than to enjoy the music arrangement he created, named after the ever-flowing cycle of life.

    song’s creator*
    When I “right click to Save As”, all I get is a 24kB MP3 file. =/ Nothing to play.

    This guy reminds of another person in the FFVII community who died several years ago. “Kao Megura”, who wrote an FFVII Versions FAQ and translated a lot of stuff from the original Japanese game, even before it had received an English release. Don’t know the circumstances of his death though.

    I really love this song, especially the softer parts, when it goes into the main theme and especially Aeriths. It is so beautifully done, even the more bombastic parts have an eligance that ties everything together really nicely.

    Rest in peace Reuben
