In the latest of releases under the Overclocked Remix name, Seven Songs for Seventh Saga can now be added to the list. Arranged entire by cellist Sebastian “AeroZ” Freij, the album pays tribute to the 1993 Enix game, The 7th Saga whose music was originally composed by Norihiko Yamanuki.

What makes this arrangement album a bit unique, other than being strictly arranged by cello,  is that it includes sheet music and performance videos along with the arranged music tracks, proving to be as instructive as it is immersive.

“Like many VGM fans, I’m very fond of music from RPG’s like Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Lufia and the list goes on… but for making a project as this, I wanted to choose something that hasn’t been covered as much,” Freij explained. “As far as I know, 7th Saga is the only game [Norihiko Yamanuki]’s written music for. The question pops up in my head from time to time: Why did he stop? I think many of the tracks have a classical touch and very interesting harmonies.”
