Doc Nano's solo piano DuckTales mix has a special place in my heart, so I was glad to see him tackle & tickle the ivories again for this contribution to Double the Trouble!:
"There is nothing so deep as the evening reminiscence of an old lady gorilla... I changed the time signature and many of the harmonies to create a Chopin-esque nocturne, but most of the melody (except transitions and later embellishments) is derived from the source."
Sweet, delicate, and waxing dramatic towards its conclusion, the dynamic contrast and timing here are perfect. halc writes:
"I dig it. between this and your 'Dancing Leaves' mix, Doc, you got some serious arranging skills. I didn't have any issues with the piano sound myself, it was nice and full, and I liked the twinkly high notes. good stuff."
Note that an updated version was provided with a piano sound that, to my ears, is pretty durn impeccable. Palpable adds:
"This arrangement - playing and writing - is really nice and does a lot with the limited source material (ganked from SM64)."
No, you're not going crazy, this source tune ("Wrinkly 64") is basically "Inside the Castle Walls" from SM64, making this basically a Super Mario 64 ReMix... or at least a ReMix of a DKC3 ReMix of SM64. It's all very incestuous:
"Dear Dixie, please come to the cave, I've peeled a banana for you. Yours truly, Wrinkly. Ape."
...or something like that ;) Either way, the good doctor works his magic on an arrangement that grows subtly in complexity and a performance that brings it all to life, making for a superb solo piano arrangement of BOTH games. Bonus. Great stuff!
