Those Who Arrange Music Further  
Anyone watch the stream of the Squeenix Concert in Germany yesterday? Here's an MP3 rip of the audio if not - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AQ75QPFQ - There's also video on YouTube. Some fine arrangements all in all, I think, but the choral sections in the FFVII battle theme are probably the high point. As always, Sakimoto is given the shaft.

I'm eying the Chicago tickets. On the site it says they had some for $19 but when I search it's $65! I guess that's the normal price for that type of thing.

Yeah, $65 sounds about right.

I guess it's because Square don't have the copyright to Sakimoto's music. That's probably the wrong guess, but Sakimoto's been able to release soundtracks under his own label in Japan. Certainly he's done his own concerts without any corporate involvement from Square or any other video game company

So there might be something going on there. Maybe.

I suspected that might be it but for Square to have hired him on a contract basis that did not include exclusive ownership of the works produced... I've never heard of an arrangement like that before. I'd be surprised if this is the case but who knows.
