Happy Anniversary to The Materia Collective and The Bwak Choir! It has been two years since Bonnie Bogovich formed our feathery ensemble, The Bwak Choir, which also means two years since the premiere of our first track (and music video) “Waltz de Chocobo” on Materia Collective’s first project, #ffvii Remix!
So many magical chicken tracks have been created and released with Materia since our hatching two years ago, from Final Fantasy to Sonic the Hedgehog… Bwak:)

Bwak to the FFX!

Bwak, we did it again:) Our latest choral arrangement, by Bonnie Bogovich, and performed by The Bwak Choir and our mini-me’s, the Cheep Childrens Chorus, will be featured on the newest Materia Collective album,  “SPIRA: Music From Final Fantasy X”, coming August 18th! “…Across 100 tracks, you’ll hear music in the styles of “orchestral, electronic, and rock along with Bollywood, disco, gypsy punk, folk and irreverent chocobo choir.”… irreverent, eh? That’s enough to make our feathers ruffle and shine:) Check out this great feature on the album at The Nerdist  #gameaudio

Retronauts: Rock out with your Bwak out!

The-Music-of-Etrian-Odyssey.pngLast week Retronauts, “America’s favorite classic gaming podcast, probably“, did an episode reviewing their favorite video game music albums of February. We were delighted when they not only talked about The Materia Collective’s latest release, ZODIAC: Final Fantasy Tactics Remixed, but they start the podcast saying “get ready to Rock out with your Bwak out” and they later introduce and play part of our track “Bwak Choir Cadets” as an example of entertainingly weird vocal music:) Check out their podcast episode here, they start talking about Materia Collective at 38 minutes in, and they talk about our Bwak Choir at 53 minutes in.

Materia Collective proudly presents “ZODIAC: Final Fantasy Tactics Remixed,” a loving tribute to the memorable music of Ivalice. Featuring 60+ arrangers from the VGM community, ZODIAC covers most of the classic soundtrack with interpretations that range from chamber ensemble to progressive metal — and the reappearance of Materia’s famed singing chocobos.

“Materia’s famed singing chocobos.” That’s us!

We are super excited to present to you our latest music track, and our second tribute to Final Fantasy, “Bwak Choir Cadets”, Track 27 on Materia Collective’s “ZODIAC: Final Fantasy Tactics Remixed”!
