The concept of “Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY”

Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY is the the official symphony concert world-tour of the FINAL FANTASY saga, featuring the music of Japanese video game composer Nobuo Uematsu and conducted by Grammy award-winner Arnie Roth. This multimedia experience combines stirring screen images to match the soaring emotions of a symphony orchestra performing music from SQUARE ENIX’S world-renowned FINAL FANTASY video game series.
After the success of the 2002 FINAL FANTASY concert held in Japan, Square Enix announced a six-city, seven-show tour of Japan in 2004 entitled “Tour de Japon: music from FINAL FANTASY.” The first stateside concert, “Dear Friends: music from FINAL FANTASY,” followed on May 10, 2004 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA and sold out in three days. It featured music from Square Enix’s world-renowned FINAL FANTASY video game series, performed by the acclaimed Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. The positive reception of this performance gave rise to the 2005 U.S. concert tour “Dear Friends: music from FINAL FANTASY.” Uematsu’s award-winning music was then featured in “More Friends: music from FINAL FANTASY” in Los Angeles at the Universal Amphitheatre. Later that year, the “VOICES: music from FINAL FANTASY” concert took place in Tokyo with the Tokyo Philharmonic under the direction of Music Director Arnie Roth.
Video game music has grown increasingly popular in the last few years. Music plays an integral role in today’s games, enhancing the players’ overall experience. While still a growing market, video game soundtracks are now sold in major outlets and include a variety of genres such as rock, hip-hop, electronica, classical compositions, and songs performed by popular artists. The FINAL FANTASY soundtracks, which are original compositions, have grown so popular that TIME magazine named series composer Nobuo Uematsu a notable “Innovator” in its recent “Time 100: the Next Wave Music” feature. Square Enix hopes to pioneer awareness and appreciation of not only its own musical creations, but also video game music throughout the industry.
