Xenoblade Chronicles – Main Theme

Seize the future!

I’ve always enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii and will definitely pick up the sequel on the Nintendo Switch!

Until then, enjoy my rendition of the main theme.


Hoshi To Bokura To (‘With the Stars and Us’) – Persona 5 (Piano Version)

This was a Christmas present to a friend, sharing it here a bit late as there were hosting issues.
My friend is a huge Persona fan in general, and it took him two tries to actually get me started on the series. Persona 3 I didn’t like when trying it, playing the intro of Persona 5 with him did the trick though. Now I’ve beat P5 and am soon through The Journey on P3 FES. Definitely hooked on the series. Can’t wait to try the dancing games and P4G.

 

Anyway, enjoy the upload and till the next one!
And hope you had a great 2018 🙂

Valse in A minor B.150 – Chopin

I like waltzes. Really, they’re fun to play and almost as much fun to dance.

This was supposed to be a gate-way into playing some more music from the romantic era, but… it’s hard to have the same amount of motivation for these pieces than for pieces from other media I enjoy. Just, having more of a connection with the piece helps.
As I get older, it does get easier to connect with classical music (in the broad sense), but still not as easily as with video game music

Next upload will be from a video game, probably Xenoblade, but we’ll see 🙂

Pachelbel Canon in D Major on Piano (Lee Galloway Arrangement)

One of the pieces that nearly every musician knows and adores.

I’ve known the Pachelbel Canon for a few years and played variations of it in various school bands and stumbled upon this arrangement a few years back via a YouTube video.

There’ll be another “traditional” cover after this one, after which it’s back to my video game / anime covers.

Enjoy!

Wiosna – Katawa Shoujo

It may not be Spring* now, but I had to just cover this piece at some point after loving Katawa Shoujo

* Wiosna is Polish for ‘Spring’ –  if you’re Polish, please confirm this or correct me if I’m wrong.

I remember playing this game on a recommendation from a friend. Always thought I may enjoy Visual Novels, but never actually got started on playing.
Katawa Shoujo managed to get 3 routes (read: playthroughs) out of me and every time upon starting there would be this piece.

To be honest, the rest of the music was pretty unremarkable, unlike the story which was uniquely written and quite mature for what it is. Looking back, I’d like to revisit the game again after all these years and see how much my perspective on life might have changed.

Having played Doki Doki Literature Club, I was reminded of this game and started working on the piece again.

Best girl in Katawa Shoujo is Hanako – fight me!

The next video should for once be something not from a game, but instead something a bit more traditional.

 

Enjoy! 🙂

Beneath the Mask on Piano – Persona 5

Back with another Persona 5 Upload. Really enjoyed the game and can whole-heartedly recommend it to everybody. The next piece will probably from Katawa Shoujo (not hard to guess which one) and after that I’ll see what’s the plan 🙂

 

Oh yeah, this time it’s a bit something different, as the piece worked well for a bit of improvisation in the middle – hope you enjoy it!

 

Enjoy!
