Hey OCRemix Team,

My specialty is piano arranging and I've had an active YouTube channel for several years (VGPianoMan). I've decided that it's finally time to partner with your community to share in this passion.

This track was recorded on a Steinway B Grand Piano. It was one of the first pieces of music in a video game that sparked a passion for me to begin composing music - now my profession! This track was recorded several years ago, so the source file has a tiny bit of high-end white noise. I EQ'd it the best I could to clean it up. 
 
 
Thanks,

The recording quality's not the best, as you mentioned, but the arrangement's a solid piano cover with good live performance dynamics to help set it apart from the original. It's short, it's bread-and-butter, but it's not repetitive in how it's performed, so it works. Count it. :-)

Overall a pretty solid performance, here. When things get busy there's quite a bit of pedal mud (like at ~1:00), but the style evokes a simpler romantic style piece so it still works alright (romantic piano music and pedal mud go together like peanut butter and messy jelly :P).

I think Larry summed it up sufficiently otherwise - good track, if a little short or simple. Get er' up there.

It's a simple interpretation, but the three passes through the source definitely show off different interpretations of it while also setting up an engaging progression.  Does what it needs to do, and I don't see any reason not to post it.

Pretty nice pacing and use of dynamics.  Simple approach that just works, the switch to adagio to finish the arrangement was very predictable but, again, just works.  Although this was pretty by-the-books, it wasn't boring at all, I quite enjoyed it.  Not every track needs to put the source upside down in order to work.
