If you’re a fan of the music featured in the Square Enix and Disney JRPG series, Kingdom Hearts, Project Destati proudly announced that their Project Destati: Darkness album is currently available. It’s based on Testuya Nomura’s original vision of Kingdom Hearts, with special arrangements featuring a live symphony orchestra.
The album contains 30 hand-selected songs that were put together to exemplify the fantastically grand wonderment of the Kingdom Heart franchise. Producer Sebastian Wolff explained in the press release what they were going for, saying…
“DARKNESS, Project Destati’s second of three volumes, has been a concept since 2014 that we’ve been slowly piecing together with the utmost care and forethought for each of the 30 tracks in this collection,”
“Each track was individually given several months of planning and consideration to be arranged in such a way so as to tell the most complete musical story, envisioned with proper connections to other melodies within the KINGDOM HEARTS universe. Thank you so much for listening to our work, and we truly hope you enjoy the ride!.”

Last but not least is the Materia Collective’s Beyond Skyrim: Bruma Original Game Soundtrack from composer Daniel Ran. This is a collection of 60 tracks based on influences from the Far East and the original soundtrack that was composed by Jeremy Soule.
Ran explained in the press release that his inspirations and aspirations from video game’s illustrious and storied history of noteworthy composers runs deep, mentioning in the press release…
“Jeremy Soule has been an influence of mine starting with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I’ve also been inspired by the works of Japanese composers including Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Shiono and Masashi Hamauzu. For Beyond Skyrim: Bruma , I feel I was able to examine just why Soule’s music was so influential and merged both the Western and Far Eastern influences into a sound that reflects me.
“It’s my most important work to date, and I’m excited to continue composing for Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil”
No mention of Yasunori Mitsuda or Noriyuki Asakura? Tsk, tsk. A shame. Mitsuda and Asakura are terribly underrated.
