January 20, 2014 (Newswire) - The New Age music artist Albedo of Salt Lake City, UT has released an album of Final Fantasy VI music, which is now available! The album is called "Magitek: Music from Final Fantasy VI" and is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Rhapsody, plus many others.
The Magitek album is a collection of cover songs by Albedo from the video game Final Fantasy VI composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

The album contains many great songs from the video game including: Terra, Decisive Battle, Techno de Chocobo and Dancing Mad.
Final Fantasy, for those of you who are unfamiliar, is a role playing video game series that was originally released for the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1987. Final Fantasy VI is the 6th game in the series and was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994. The music was composed by Nobuo Uematsu, who coincidentally is a fan of the Fresh Aire series by Chip Davis of Mannheim Steamroller. One does not necessarily have to play the games to enjoy the music. Music from the Final Fantasy series is arguably the best ever written for video games, and is extremely popular.
The word Magitek itself is from the game Final Fantasy VI and can be simply described as magical technology. Machines that are powered by magic to do unbelievable things. Fans of the game should recognize the word very easily.
Albedo is a New Age music artist who also writes in the Classical, Soundtrack and Dance genres. Since being formed in January of 2002, 9 albums have been officially released including a New Age Christmas album in 2012 that contains a collection of secular and sacred Holiday songs similar in style to Mannheim Steamroller, Kurt Bestor, and Jon Schmidt. A classical album called "Symphony No. 1", also released in 2012. Plus a video game soundtrack called "Forgotten Lands" in 2011, which was nominated for "Best Soundtrack Album" by the 12th Annual Independent Music Awards (The IMAs) in 2013. The Battle of Shiloh from his album "Digital Fingers" released in 2010 was performed at Carnegie Hall in April of 2011.
