This week I have for your playing pleasure two more pieces:
From Chrono Cross, the beautifully woeful "Dead Sea/Tower of Ruin." (Also known as Tower of Geddon, Ruined Tower, and Tower of Destruction, which all seem to be valid translations.) I know the Dead Sea theme has been transcribed by others before, but I like it so much that I wanted to do it myself. I added some chords and octaves in the B and C sections the second time through to change the feeling of the piece and make it sound a bit more like the original.
From Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, a short one--"All Aboard the Excess Express." I gave it the tempo indication "Tempo di locomotiva" because it should be played swiftly and evenly like a moving train. The short, repeated phrase that makes up most of the left hand part can be accented to lend the piece a chugging feeling.
Despite my whiny post last week, I have made no decision yet about whether to continue using Blogger. At first I wasn't even sure using a blogging site was the right way to go, but in the end I thought it would be a good way for me to give some information on each new piece I transcribed, and it would make the potential addition of other news/information to updates easier. Any thoughts or suggestions? Does anyone even read this?
P.S. To the kind YouTuber who requested a video of "Let's Walk Together" (a.k.a. the nighttime Gear Savanna theme from Digimon World), I haven't forgotten about you! It's next on my list. It's just not the easiest piece out there...
And to the rest of you, I believe I said this already, but I intend to eventually make a video for each piece of music to replace all the MIDIs so you can get a better idea of what the music sounds like on a piano.
