There's probably many members out there who are interested in gaming music, so Mr Super-Hunky has came up with this great idea to start a thread where we can share our recordings of any 'Anime or Video Game Music' that we have learned.

So I will start. This is my recording of the piece called "On the Shores of Another World" which is the theme from Chrono Cross. I had changed the ending just slightly to give it a finish sound to the piece.

Monica, thanks for finding this lovely piece of music \:\)

[sputters incoherently] You mean you have learned this piece and got it up to recording standards already????[/b] (For those of you who didn't read about this in the other thread, I posted the link to the piece and where to find the sheet music--which is devilishly difficult--just yesterday or the day before.)

Wow.... just wow. That was beautiful, kawaigirl, absolutely beautiful. I'd be insanely jealous if this feat didn't prove you are so out of my playing league that there's no use being jealous. \:D

My daughter and I play a flute/piano duet of "Terra's Theme." I'll have to show her this thread as a gentle inducement to get her practicing more on it so we can record it.

I don't know if this counts, but I did compose an orchestral arrangement of some video game music from the game "Syberia" for my music class, so it's kind of like playing it:

Very nice recording KawaiGirl1!

Monica, I can't wait to hear the recording of that duet. That sounds like it would be a beautiful rendition.

*sigh* I still have no Zoom h4 or any such device, so I can't share my recordings (probably a good thing - lol!).

Jesus kawaigirl, you have such great skills \:\) . I'm jealous. You learned this song to recording standard in just a day or two. That's quite a feat. I'm sure if I attempted this piece now it would take me at least 2 weeks to learn, probably more. Very nice job.

Kawaigirl:

Do you mean to tell me that this is the piece that Monica just mentioned like a day or two ago???. Holy cow you are awesome!

Monica, this IS a beautiful piece and Kawaigirl, you did a beautiful job with it (as usual).

I am absolutely blown away by by your talents Kawaigirl. Now I've really got to finish up my Path of Repentance piece. You guys are certainly keeping me on my toes!.

I don't know how many would have seen this (Im sure jazzwee is familiar), but this was a commercial they made for Halo 3 last year which features one of my favorite songs.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=3PGpn4c96ZU

Without context this may look silly, but that diarama was built by hand and all those figures are ~8-inches tall... a real work of art. I thought the slow and melancholy version of 28/15 was very powerful. Some of the faces on the soldiers... so heart-rending.

anyways... yeah, im a video game nut... sue me \:\)

The detail on some of those figurines is remarkable. The piano score is also very nice. A bit dark but still nice.

Theowne, I really liked your "Syberia" arrangement... why do you say it was "kind of like playing it"? Didn't you have to play it to make that recording? Or is that some MIDI thing I never got the hang of? \:D

Theowne[/b] What a beautiful piece!


Goose[/b] : it's amazing that some of these gaming music used were from the great classical composer Chopin himself!

I'm all out of superlatives, KG, exquisite, lovely, I am enchanted and mesmerized by your playing.

A lovely composition, Theowne, if you're not careful, you're going to end up as a professional composer someday.

...so as not to be left behind, here's my arrangement and improv of the song Lilium by K. Konishi & Y. Kondou (from the anime Elfen Lied). I posted this originally in the November bar, so it's not a new piece, I hope anime music is OK here and that it's not limited exclusively to video game music? \:\)

Yes, anime music would be included here as well.

Wow, gone for a bit during Xmas, New Year and there is so much music listening to catch up to!

Kawaigirl, that was lovely playing. I have yet to figure out what it is that makes your playing so beautiful every time. Every note just sounds perfectly "right" compared to every other note. If I could crack the secret, I am sure my playing will sound a whole lot better.

Theowne, you are one amazing composer. This work is so sophisticated! Wow!! I am absolutely impressed. So I am curious: Do you enjoy playing Debussy more, or do you enjoy composing more? \:\)

Van, from the first note, you have me captivated. Very nice arrangement and a very sweet melody.

Beautiful piece, Van! It sounds very classical to my ears.

Since we're including anime , here's a piece I recorded a while back:

"Her Most Beautiful Smile"

It's from the anime series Rorouni Kenshin. I was introduced to this piece by Cryptkeeper, who posted a recording of it shortly after I joined the forum. (If you're out there, Cryptkeeper, thanks!! \:\) )

Monica, this style of music is soooo you \:\) It was very beautifully played.

I'm just amazed at how beautiful some of these anime/video game music can be.

Thanks gang! \:D

What a lovely piece, Monica. I really enjoyed listening to it. If you hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known it was anime, a very nice composition. You had a wonderful touch even then.

It's pretty neat how much of our repertoire is influenced by what we hear in this forum, I know that's certainly been the case for me as well.

Hehe, time to resurrect this thread!

Since I do a lot of video game pieces, I decided to post this latest song here too. I just finished posting it at the piano bar, but I wanted to contribute to this thread as well. This is from the game, Final Fantasy VIII, and is entitled "Eyes On Me."

Hope you all enjoy!

That was fantastic playing Z32 \:\)

What a beautiful piece. I've seen this piece in my piano book but never knew what it sounded like. Thanks for introducing me to the piece.

Ben:

Loved your playing as always. This piece is very nice but also a little different sounding than the rest of the final fantasy pieces.

To me, this piece has a more movie soundtrack sound to it. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Your playing is spot on as well. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks for the comments KG and Mr. S-H! Yea the thing with the music from Final Fantasy is that, although they are all composed by the same person, each game in the series has a different musical theme. Hence you get many songs that have a different style to them.

Oh, and I found this youtube video which shows the original version of the piece I did. It really inspired me to learn the song even more.

The music and playing on display here are quite wonderful. I think this whole line of thinking has tremendous value because:

1) My son got the piano bug last Nov. after hearing the Halo 3 "Believe" commercial. He was so taken with the music that he searched out what it was, found sheet music for it and taught to himself on his sister's 66 key electronic keyboard. The he researched Chopin and the circumstances surrounding the compositon of the Raindrop Prelude. He has taught himself several other classical pieces since then, and after a 2 month search, we (yesterday) bought a used Pramberger JP175 (5'9" baby grand). As Humphrey Bogart said in Casablanca, " . . . I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

2) It occurs to me that a junior high school or high school program teaching piano, but centered on music from video games and anime could draw many, many kids who would otherwise never put fingers to (non-computer) keyboard. I think I'm gonna have to follow up on this idea, when I'm not learning how to play the soon-to-appear piano!

I'm looking forward to much playing, listening and, eventually, sharing here.

I forgot that this thread was also for anime music, so here's my first anime submission here.

It's from the anime, Naruto, and is entitled, Sadness and Sorrow. It's actually very simple to play, but the emotion the song brings out is something else(although I'm not sure if I'm the right person to bring that out lol!)

Anyways, here it is; hope you like!

Anime: Naruto
Piece: Sadness and Sorrow

z32, your rendition of Eyes on Me was very nice. I think that's the same one I'm trying to learn myself (from the FF8 piano collections, right?). I'm printing out the sheet music as we speak... hoping to come up with a rendition that's good as yours.
