After an immensely successful Kickstarter campaign to fund his album, composer and remixer Andrew Aversa (aka zircon) has released Identity Sequence. According to Aversa, the album is the "the culmination of a five-year musical endeavor" and combines "progressive trance, dubstep, drum and bass, breakbeat, atmospheric downtempo, and many other highly rhythmic electronic subgenres [...] into a cohesive body of songs." Among the artists that Aversa worked with on Identity Sequence are Jillian Aversa, Jeff Ball and the Philadelphia Men&39;s Chorale.
Game music remixing community OC ReMix have relaunched their FFVI Kickstarter campaign, aiming to raise $30,000. While OC ReMix's upcoming FFVI tribute album, scheduled to encompass 5 CDs, will be distributed for free download via their website, the Kickstarter campaign will finance a limited run of licensed physical copies of the album. The project boasts an impressive line up of remixers, including Jake "virt" Kaufman, Danny Baranowsky, Andrew and Jillian Aversa, Jimmy Hinson, Joshua Morse and Shnabubula. According to project manager Andrew Aversa, the project's goal is to "arrange the bulk of the FFVI soundtrack in a varied (but cohesive) range of musical styles". A Kickstarter campaign for the album was launched earlier this year, but was suspended due to licensing issues with Square Enix, which have since been resolved.
