Eternal Wind – Piano Opera Final Fantasy III

One of my favorite tracks from one of the best intros I’ve seen in quite a few years. Pretty much the only Final Fantasy game where I watched the intro regularly before playing, just to get into the feeling.

This also started my obsession with not being able to play handheld game (played the DS remake) without head-/earphones.

Been working on this piece for quite a few months, originally planned to be uploaded last month, but it didn’t feel ready. I was working on Matoya’s Cave for a while as well, but it’s dropped for now until I feel up to it. Here’s Kara Comparetto’s cover though if you need some more Final Fantasy fix

Wishing you all a great Spring – until the next piece!

Final Fantasy XIV – Oblivion (Shiva’s Theme) Piano Arrangement

All in blue for my newest upload of the lady of ice.

This was a present for my friend who adores this Primal song above all others and I can’t blame him. Found myself often humming along after practice.

My personal favorite is Thunder Rolls which is Ramuh’s Theme, but all of the raid music in FFXIV is just great

For anybody curious, I play on Louisoix server 🙂

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!
