Materia Collective and Multiplayer Charity join forces and release a video game remix album to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
The four-track album, called Spirit, contains remixes from Undertale, Final Fantasy VII, Journey, and Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire from arrangers and performers such as Braxton Burks (Pokémon Reorchestrated), Laura Intravia (Video Games Live), StringPlayerGamer (Strings of Determination), Loudr co-founder Jesse Buddington, Sean Schafianski (Video Game Music Reorchestrated), and others. All proceeds from album sales will be donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund at the Greater Houston Community Foundation to assist with relief efforts.
"We started working on Spirit almost immediately after Harvey, since many Materia Collective members are from Houston and wanted to contribute to the rebuilding process," comments project organizer Emily McMillan. "There was a great outpouring of support in the immediate aftermath of this disaster; however, the need is ongoing, and we hope that our EP can contribute. In the time since we started this project, other hurricanes have affected other areas, including Florida, the Virgin Islands, and most recently, Puerto Rico. While all Spirit proceeds will go towards the Greater Houston Community Foundation, we also want to raise awareness for these other areas that badly need support. Donation links for charities in other areas can be found on Bandcamp and Materia Collective's official website."
Spirit is available digitally via Bandcamp, iTunes, and Spotify.
