Celebrate 15 years of KINGDOM HEARTS with a special EP offering a musical retelling of the stories of beloved characters Sora, Kairi, Roxas and Riku.
SEATTLE – August 7, 2018 – Materia Collective is excited to make available Heroes of Light (KINGDOM HEARTS Arrangements) by arranger Peter de Vroom. Celebrating 15 years of the KINGDOM HEARTS series, Heroes of Lights retells the tales of the main protagonists of the series through music with a track dedicated each to Sora, Kairi, Roxas, and Riku. For example, Sora’s theme is arranged for two pianos to highlight the camaraderie he shares on his journey, while Roxas’s theme gets electronic elements that seemingly pull away at the essence of him and his theme. Heroes of Light (KINGDOM HEARTS Arrangements) is available today:
“The music of KINGDOM HEARTS has the ability to create truly magical and emotional moments,” comments arranger Peter de Vroom. “I believe the music shines brightest in the character themes, some of which I have featured on this EP. My aim was to highlight each character’s story in my arrangements, from Sora’s unwavering spirit to Riku’s brooding battle with darkness.”
The track list for Heroes of Light (KINGDOM HEARTS Arrangements) is as follows:
01. There’s A light That Never Goes Out (Piano Duet) (Sora’s Theme)
02. I’m Always With You (Kairi’s Theme)
