    Transported to DISTANT WORLDS

    I was lucky enough to go to Distant Worlds this year, on October 6th! It is a concert of just Final Fantasy music. You read that right, just Final Fantasy music, but completely performed by an orchestra! I was rather surprised at how excited I was to go to this concert, because I“m usually not one to go to them. Since this was an orchestra, people showed up in various levels of dress. Some were dressed formally, others were dressed in a business style, some more casual, and I even spotted one person in full blown cosplay as Yuna! But this concert was a blast! As my brother put it, it was a giant nostalgia trip. There were plenty of songs I recognized and quite a few that I didn“t. There were some medleys that were played, where songs from a few games transitioned very well into one another. There was also a special 25th anniversary song that was played. The conductor noted that the team tries to make the songs as close to the games as possible. I had forgotten how great the Final Fantasy VIII battle theme was, and loved it when the main theme played. I wish Dancing Mad (Kefka“s theme), the Final Fantasy VI boss theme, or the World of Balance Map theme played, but you can't have everything. However, they did play the opera! Specific singers were brought in to play Maria and Draco, and there was a narrator too! The 25th anniversary special was a great original, and the choir/chorus ended up spelling the word “chocobo†during the end of the song. The man, the myth, the legend, Nobuo Uematsu was there! This is the second time I've seen him, (the first was at PAX East 2011) and he even played a song! It was the introduction music from Final Fantasy VI, and he played on a keyboard. It was pretty cool, to see him play live. The conductor, Arnie Roth told the story about how Nobuo Uematsu would play in the concert…and that was if Arnie Roth agreed to play violin! Now I“ve never seen the conductor decide to play an instrument during the concert he himself is conducting, but I thought it was one of the best aspects of the show. The concert ended with the ever so popular , and Nobuo Uematsu joined the chorus and sang along! I very much enjoyed the aspect of original medleys and songs combined with the orchestral sounds of the game music. See if you can spot Nobuo Uematsu! All in all, it was a great show!
