OCR00201 - Mega Man "Cut Man Sonata"

Recommended Posts

Mega Man 'Cut Man Sonata'

Gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. I love this remix. It's a wonderful

arrangement. It might not be a strict sonata, but it's still an excellent

piano track.

Of course it's not a sonata, and I'm sure McVaffe knows it better than any of us. But it's as charming as any piano song I know, and listening to it one may well think MM1 soundtrack has been composed by Nobuo Uematsu. What a great arrangement!

Now now, if you study classical literature, you will see that the term "Sonata" not only refers to a form based on recurring themes and development, but also to an actual style as well. While this doesn't follow A section, B section, development, recapitulation, and all those rules (that tend to make songs too damn LONG in my opinion), it does in fact capture the essence and quality of a sonata style, even when compared mildly to classical pieces of centuries past.

Don't know why I felt the need to write that; perhaps to make it seem like I learned all that crap in college for an actual reason, heh.

And yes, I too commend McVaffe on a nice tune. I can play it on the piano too, did ya know that? Ask McVaffe, I was hanging out with him in NY the other day. Good stuff.

This has to be the best remix on this site. Probably because all the other remixes of Megaman are techno. I know that they are cool, but this song is ............................. pretty. Really good moving piano piece. There is a lot of extra harmony and chords added into this song that make it sound like an old-school classical piano piece, like Moonlight sonata or something. This is excellent! Much respect. Hell, I wish I could play that on the piano!

Amazing. Astouding. It makes me want to take piano lessons again. There's nothing that I like better than a good quality Piano solo, and this is one. This one will be a top mix on my list for years. 11/10

megaman .. piano ... another thing i thought was impossible, and was prooved wrong on sight. MCV brings us another one of those tracks that blows people away with creativity. DJP resumes everything quite nicely here ..

Cutman's sonata is an amazing piano mix .. that makes me wonder if they shuold someday make a megaman piano Soundtrack ?

this is a great peice! Never would i think that it would be possible but i was glad to see that i am wrong that piano could do so well with Mega Man! Very relaxing and well done. I love cut man's song and this just makes me enjoy it that much more! It is a must have! 8/10

Beautiful. There's not even words I can think of to describe it. How you envisioned this from the original CutMan theme is something I can't even comprehend. Amazing work.

I could barely tell it was Cutman until it picked up in tempo, but it has emotional power on par with the Trial theme ReMix from Chrono Trigger . McVaffe once again proves his place in the OCR elite with this excellent piece.

I just DLed this track again after reformatting my hard drive and I have to say that even after three plus years of age, this is still one of the best arrangements on the site. Thank you, McVaffe.

I concur, this track is really great. Great translation from the game, I can't believe you were able to turn it into a successful piano piece, great job.

Absolutely stunning!

McVaffe is a genius when it comes to piano works!!

This variation on Cutman's theme is just simply awesome!

No other way to describe it!

:D:D:D:D:D

5 Smileys! Great Song!

This is probably my very favorite song on the site. The arrangement and performance are both simply amazing. Who would've guessed that Megaman would sound so good in piano? And so natural? I've been known to leave this playing for hours on end. And you know what? It still sounds awesome.

Great work, McVaffe.

I've always loved the beauty of this piece, but just now I took the time to listen to a couple of other renditions of the original as MIDIs (I've never actually heard the original theme).

Wow!

Bif!

Pow!

Boy did McVaffe turn a chunk of coal into a diamond : )

Minimal, but very enjoyable to listen to. The arrangement is not terribly deep, but it sounds very good, and the top notch playing (or samples/effects, I don't know) compliment it well. I've been playing this myself for the past few weeks (not the original theme, but this remix) and I've gotten some compliments on it- to which, of course, I respond that I didn't make it up or arrange it or anything.

Definitly good stuff, 9/10.

Once and again, McVaffe prove that he's really THE LORD of the piano arrangements! 8) I'm starting to think that he can actually take any piece of music and turn it in a piano masterpiece! :P It's so beautiful that it's pulling me a tear! :cry: Great work from McVaffe Beethoven! :wink:

Ok, I had to create an account for this one. I love remixes, and piano ones are probably my favorite. But they seem rather difficult to come by. Anyways...

I play piano, as I'm sure so to do some of you, and I have to say that I really appreciate this song. If i close my eyes, I can literally see one of my instructors playing this. It's so well done.

This is beautiful work. Congradulations. As well, if there were to be sheet music of this, I would also be interested. Thank you.

Very nice job. It makes me picture a scene where Megaman's feeling down and almost unwilling to go on or something. Just has a really nice melancholy feel to it.
