I wrote this for orchestra originally but the Hsin-Chu Wind Symphony had me re-write it for all winds for their video game concert last month. Unlike the orchestral recording I have, this ensemble used the alternate ending I wrote. And this time, the man on drum set actually played most of the patterns I wrote!

Nice arrangement, personally I'd've liked to have heard some more dramatic deviation from the original chiptune parts, especially the basslines. It's very coverish, leaning heavily on original lines.

That aside, instrumentation is tasteful and was an enjoyable listen; must be awesome to hear your work played live.

It isn't "fresh" enough to pass on OCR, but it's very enjoyable, and a lot of fun. Great work! Though I feel I must ask...

No Sunshine? No handheld? :(

I'm planning on adding sunshine soon! Probably delfino plaza...

If you loved my deviation here, you'll love the Zelda medley I had them perform...being sarcastic of course...since it is pretty similar to the standard Koji Kondo orchestral arrangement, with the exception of a some variations I did, the inclusion of the dungeon theme, and an ending fanfare I am pretty proud of.
