For today we've got another lovely solo piano piece from jdaster64 (Jonathan Aldrich), off of Video Game Variations, applying a pleasant upbeat pop/classical ivory treatment to Kirby: Canvas Curse:

"Hey, it's me again, with another solo piano arrangement from another of my favorite Kirby games (since Kirby can't get enough love)! I always loved Canvas Curse's soundtrack, since it was pretty much all made up of remixes of other tunes from the series, often with vastly different interpretations. Since for some reason I've always associated the sounds in Canvas Curse's compositions with colorful, abstract art and grand cityscapes, I tried to capture that in my arrangement. I added some chromatic chords in the B section of the melody, and generally favored the wider, fuller sound and varying moods of Canvas Curse's "Tiny Town" theme, all while retaining the airy feel of the original "Bubbly Clouds." Thanks a bunch!"

Good stuff; volume's a little low, but performance is expressive and dynamic, and pedal work accentuates that, as Gario notes:

"Damn, easiest YES on a piano track I've had to make on here so far. Great handling of the pedal on this - light and cheerful at some points, rich and evokitive at others, and I never felt the pedal bleeding unintentionally. The harmonies are rich, and the performance is tight and dynamic."

Ditto that; oscillates gracefully, emotes expressively, and offers up a flowing, playful, & classy arrangement of the source material. I'd llove to hear a somewhat cleaner, wider, and louder soundscape, where the piano sits a little closer, but it's not a dealbreaker and this still absolutely captures the beauty & nuance of Jonathan's performance. Enjoy!

been singing along to this with my kids....

Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
"Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only four little ducks came back.

Four little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
"Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only three little ducks came back.

But only two little ducks came back.

One little duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
"Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But none of the five little ducks came back.

Sad mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
"Quack, quack, quack."
And all of the five little ducks came back.

So. freakin'. classy. Well done! Only minor gripe is that the volume is way low.

Lovely remix. Hearing Bubbly Cloud really works on the piano.
