From newcomer Pumpkin King (Joe Dumpe) comes a lovely & relaxing solo piano arrangement of Sonic 2's 'Sky Chase Zone', which lends itself exceptionally well to the delicate, ivory treatment:
"The original tune is very chill and calming... A relaxing and nicely paced song. So I wanted to convey it a little more by taking advantage of my applied reverb, and playing the tune without any of my typical arpeggios. So I played it nice and slowly and added my own section in the middle of the song. I used Logic Pro as my DAW. I used the Galaxy Vintage D library for the piano sound."
There's a pretty wide stereo separation on the piano, which means that higher-octave portions of the arrangement are pretty far right, and it always sounds nice when the bass comes back in on the left & fills things out. halc writes:
"excellent piano tone, wasn't as bothered by the reverb personally, but I agree that it is a bit heavy. excellent tone and sequencing. gonna echo Shariq here, the arrangement isn't too crazy or interpretive, but a nice adaptation with plenty of flourish, and the performance is beautiful. Nice work."
While most solo piano ReMixes DO have less verb, and this is swimming a bit, it works rather well for this specific arrangement, which never bangs out any triple-forte action that would make it truly problematic, and instead maintains a serene, floating altitude. A very pleasant, meditiative debut from Joe, with enough personalization to make it his own & a peaceful, transcendental calm. I'm literally going to become a father any day now, as we're actually PAST Anna's due date... this seems like a great candidate for a lullabye/newborn playlist, so I'm thanking Joe in advance for a mix that's appropriate for ALL ages!
