13th Side – Kingdom Hearts Piano Collection

For the time being, one of the last uploads from the Kingdom Hearts Piano Collection. Really enjoy playing the piece and all the emotion that’s within it – more or less happy with how the rendition came out, even with a few creative liberties.

Next songs should be Beneath the Mask from Persona 5 and Wiosna from Katawa Shoujo. So far, I’m track with my monthly uploads 🙂

The sheet music is from the official sheet music, which can be bought online anywhere.

 

Well, I’m off to Ireland for 2 weeks – behave yourselves while I’m gone!

Poem of Everyone’s Soul – Persona 5 (Piano Version) (“Aria of the Soul”)

After multiple attempts, my friend got me to play Persona 5. As expected, I immediately fell in love with the JRPG. Still currently playing the game, just beat the fifth dungeon and waiting for the resolution to the calling card (trying to prevent spoilers).

To anybody that’s looking for a mature JRPG, I can definitely recommend Persona. It has charm, good soundtrack and actual strategic combat. It takes a while to get into full swing, but after the second dungeon when you’ve levelled up a few social links – the intricacies of the game really start showing themselves. I’m definitely enjoying it and thankful to my friend to almost forcing me to give the game a try.

In any case, I bought the “Persona 5 Piano Solo Sheet Music Book” and this was the first piece I started learning (besides “Beneath the Mask”). It can be found on the internet and imported as needed, not that expensive.

Next up is either Beneath the Mask or 13th Side (as one of the last KH covers). Time will tell which one happens first, but look forward to the next video!

Quick question, is “Aria of the Soul” Persona’s “Dearly Beloved” or is that just me? Just me? Okay.

Musique pour la Tristesse de Xion – Kingdom Hearts Piano Collections: Field and Battle

This video has been in the making for quite some time, even had a grand piano version from a few months back, that I wasn’t satisfied with, maybe I’ll upload it unlisted at some point for those curious, but that depends on you.

This song has made me realize how, as a pianist, it’s easier for me to put my soul into pieces like this (when I’m not playing with others) than other music. It’s strange, in a sense. A blessing and a curse, I have a few other possible uploads, but I feel like they sound soulless in comparison… Nonetheless, I plan to keep playing various pieces, uploading some here and there.

A goal, that’s formed in my mind, after this piece, is to actually play all the pieces in the Kingdom Hearts Piano Collections and in the Field & Battle variant. I don’t know how it’ll go, but I like a challenge.

In unrelated news: I finally bought the 2 CDs to the Piano Collections album, and may be going to a certain concert next year… #Only Fans Will Know #Hashtagging when you don’t like #Hashtags

 

Anyways, hope you enjoy the piece. I’m still not satisfied, but one needs to move one. Just like the death of… Wait… There Was a certain black-haired girl who… I just can’t remember. Strange.
