Between Earth and Sky.
Produced and arranged by Henderson, Between Earth and Sky contains six tracks that have been influenced by Chrono Trigger’s soundtrack.
“Chrono Trigger’s soundtrack has personally touched me more than any other, and I know there are many others with similar emotional connections to both the game and Yasunori Mitsuda’s soundtrack,” explained Henderson through a press release.
She added: “My concept and the reasoning behind the album’s title, Between Earth and Sky, was to highlight the physical, emotional, and metaphysical journey that the characters undertake as they discover the truth about the end of the world, experience the end of time itself, and defeat Lavos.”
The EP opens with a piano and vocal-heavy track called “Memories of Green” before transitioning into a symphonic rock number in “Battle with Magus.”
What brings Between Earth and Sky to an end is “World Revolution”, a collaborative effort by musicians and fans from around the world, including a crowd-sourced ensemble.
Henderson drew from Chrono Trigger’s storyline and themes, citing the union of characters as a parallel to her approach in making the EP.
“Most importantly, Crono’s friends throughout the game all come from different eras and lands. Thus, Crono finds a greater common purpose along with the unlikeliest of allies, including a robot, a princess, a frog, and a demon king. This theme echoed my collaborative efforts, as I involved many musicians and non-musicians who all share a love for Chrono Trigger and its music,” Henderson said.
Between Earth and Sky is available now from various digital outlets, including Amazon Music, iTunes, Bandcamp, Deezer, and Tidal.
