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”!

You can also preview our track on Soundcloud!

Got Bwak? at MAGfest

15873418_922798404518130_4723136171957502149_nMany singing (and puppeteering) members of The Bwak Choir were going to be at MAGfest, so our fearless leader, Bonnie Bogovich, made a batch of home-punched buttons to hand out to our flock and fans.  The slogan “Got Bwak?” seemed appropriate so we went with that. It was such a hit, we decided to order the domain “GotBwak.com” which now redirects to this website. Stay tuned for some wacky group photos of our chickens from MAGfest!
