Chocobo Warrior, a rap song

Chocobo are the large bird-creatures from the Final Fantasy game series. They are usually harmless and in many FF games can be tamed and ridden.

Over 12 years ago, I had this idea for a song about a Chocobo Warrior. The hero of this song presented himself as independent and confident in the rap music style. The song idea always amused myself and only a couple of friends and family members until I finished it this year.

I created the “Chocobo sound” from a synthesizer in Ableton Live. I modeled the sound after a Chocobo sample, but rather than simply sampling the sound and throwing it into the song, I wanted to have the flexibility to extend the Chocobo’s call and make human like inflection. So, I really needed to create the bird call from scratch, but once I did, I was able to have a bit of fun “playing” the Chocobo sound on a keyboard. 🙂

Since it has journeyed from more than 12 years in the past, I hope this song finds you well, particularly if you are a fan of Final Fantasy, or Chocobo in general.
