Monkey Island on Piano
 
Hi,

I've made a video of myself playing various themes from Monkey Island on piano.
I've added ingame scenes as well to show where the themes appeared in the game.

Links to download it:

Very good stuff! You've obviously been practicing this for a long time; highly commendable playing.

Have you considered doing some fully composed remixes for the likes of ocremix? I'm not sure if you're strictly a piano player or whether you can stretch to filling other roles via a keyboard or even play others, but there's a distinct lack of Monkey Island homage on there other than Trapezoid's classic from years ago. :)

w3sp 12-29-2005 05:26 PM

Thanks for the comments so far :)

@gunar: Information about the sheets is in the movie (outro) as you will see.

@Thrik:
I practised 2-3 weeks, actually I had to skip about 7-8 songs I'd have liked to
play but the video would have been too long then.



so long..

Also, try VGmix.com, there just aren't enough Monkey Island remixes nowadays

Great! Thanks a lot.

Danke.

Thanks for the Link, I've posted in their forum / sent an email :)

I'm only 2 minutes in but still listening and I'd have to say, I didn't expect much and was pleasantly surprised. You have some real talent. Do you play piano just for fun, or do you do stuff like concerts and whatnot. I'm guessing you've taken lessons or whatever, but this is really excellent stuff (although this is coming from me, who, beyond the theme to the Rugrats, can't play a thing on the piano), I didn't know so much music could come out of one person, but there you go. The MI2 bit has just started, and I have to say, just wonderful, you really captured the feeling of MI2 with that piano. Well done.

Hi, thanks a lot :)
I mainly play classical music and took part competitions and such stuff.
Some years ago I got the idea to play the great music of my favourite games I played
during my childhood on piano.
Any kind of feedback, comments and spreading the video is a great motivation to
continue transcribing computergame/videogame music and making videos.

Happy New Year all.

Really nice stuff. Have you ever played on an Organ? The Organ player in my band
plays alot of Final Fantasy stuff for ****s and giggles, but it sound awesome, and
monkey island music would be even better (...or?) :D

bgbennyboy 01-02-2006 08:02 AM

I like this a lot. Nice one!

James Isaac 01-02-2006 01:31 PM

That was awesome! I never thought anyone would be able to play so many of the songs so accurately :). The only Monkey Island song I can play is the simpler version of LeChuck's Theme. The GF Video Game Sheet music site is great too. I'm glad you shared the sheet music.

Edit - Is the sheet music for the first song in your video (MI1 Intro) on the site? I couldn't seem to find it.

w3sp 01-02-2006 03:47 PM

I have played about 2 times on an organ yet, but I prefer piano.
The Organ Prelude from Monkey Island 1 sounds pretty good on an organ and
the MI2 Cemetery and Swamp music as well.

I'm glad to see people visiting the GF site where our sheetmusic is shared to try them out, too.
You're right, a few songs (MI1: Fettucini Brothers, Intro; MI2: Captain Dread, Stan, Swamp, Woodtick) aren't on the site yet because GF is on holidays.
You can find the remaining sheets on the site when he's back (end of this week), I hope you can wait that long :)


so long..

Excllent stuff man, sounded great. Reminds me, Ive been meaning to force a friend of mine who has like 13 years of insane guitar and drums skills to re do some old Lucas stuff, mainly so I can hear it...But id post it here as well.

Very Very well done, congrats.

Shmargin 01-03-2006 08:20 PM

Oh, and one more thing, your "stuff5" video linked on putfile, the Duke Nukem theme man? Super great.

Spitmaster 01-04-2006 07:04 PM

Hi! It Really warm my heart to listening (and watching) all the MI music. It was a really original ideia! Im from Portugal and I wish get to see here some orchestra to play all the MI musics as well Indiana Jones OST.

BillaMonster 01-05-2006 11:52 AM

Rock.

w3sp 01-09-2006 08:26 AM

Due to circumstances the update of the page with the sheets is delayed around a week.
Since I've already promised the remaining sheets for end of last week, here they are:

Mr Cheese 03-01-2006 02:15 AM

I want to see all the different Woodtick music (especially the version in Largo's room). Sometimes I play just to listen to it.

irishdoody 06-05-2006 12:41 AM

Would somebody mind putting it up again? I would love to hear/see this.
