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:

I hope you enjoy it


so long..

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.

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..

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?)


I do mind. The Dude minds. This will not stand. This aggression will not stand, man.

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.

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..

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:

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


Mmmmm, maggoty!
