Well, some people didn't understand what I meant when I said that I can't read music....but I "hear" songs and try to replicate them for fun on my own piano.

Well, I heard this song from a game, Morrowind, and "re-did it" on my piano for fun just now.

The microphone is across the room, so the quality is very poor...so excuse that.

And on top of that, this is "all" one track...just me straight up playing.

It download itself kind of messes up at first...so let it play for a few seconds, hit stop, then hit play again.

All credit goes to God, of coarse.

Pretty freakin good if you ask me.

That is... awesome...

Dude, that is so beautiful. I really like it! I was like, sitting in awe the whole time.

I'd be honored if you'd play piano for a song I'm writing! :)

Dude, that was great. I mean, really great. What did you use for the acompanyment though. Was it a recording you played along with, or did you mix it all with a keyboard. Either way, it sounded fricken awesome.

I had a piano/strings/ambience tied into the piano to play at once when I hit one key.

No pre-recorded stuff or play along stuff.

It's still pretty awesome, and I know exactly what Morrowind song you were trying to recreate. If you could get the recording quality a bit better, it'd be good for casual listening.

Oh my God. That is incredible! When I hear really, really good music, my heart just beats faster and faster; man, it is racing right now. Keep it up. You rock. :)

that's amazing man! at first i thought it was a "live" version for the upcoming Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion!

04-18-2005, 12:40 AM
Now I listen to that like I do with every song on my computer.

3 thumbs up man!

On a somewhat unrelated/related note; Has anyone been to the Oblivion Forums (http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/index.php?showforum=4) lately? Every other thread is about some guy wanting from anything from a "karma" system, to detructible environments, and usless **** from fake money, weapon torches, wagons, hookers, and stuff. Half of those things they "petition" for are things that they can't possibly add without changing the core engine of the Construction Set engine, or change the designs of basically every single aspect of everything.

Me? I just want to see a video.

God, I haven't double posted in so long, but:

Try putting your song on the Morrowind Forums (http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/index.php?showforum=6) I am sure they will love it.

Oh, and here is the Composer's web site.

And you did this just by hearing it?

Very nicely done!

I agree with TiE about the Oblivion forums. I used to hang out there. I found it funny that people were making parodies of Oblivion when the game release is still so far away. I decided to add my own parody, "The Homer Scrolls IV: Oblivious." It's mostly Homer talking to the pop-up help messages, but I hope you find it funny. Part One. (http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47498&view=findpost&p=792666) Part Two. (http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47498&view=findpost&p=893413) It's been a while since I posted those on the Oblivion forum, but I'm working on a third.

04-18-2005, 01:13 PM
Very well. I posted at morrowind forums. Glad y'all like it.

That's really good, and I recognize that song ^_^

It makes me want to play Morrowind really badly :indif:

04-18-2005, 03:46 PM
You're really good. :eek: Great job. :)

04-18-2005, 08:46 PM
Well, Morrowind peeps liked it, as well. :)

RP, you should invest in a 4-track. However, you COULD nab this snazzy little program for alot cheaper, and mic your computer.


I'm really happy with this program, it enabled me to mix all my 4-track cassette demos into mp3 format, and it is EASY to use!

Thanks for the tip. :)
