So, what is that direction supposed to indicate to the performer? Play the notes louder to increase tension (even though that's not what happens in the original)? Make random noises by vocalizing?
I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at here; a performer should easily figure out what to do given just the sheet.
Quote from: JDMEK5 on September 14, 2016, 10:49:20 AMTo add my thoughts:
-Measures 1,3; Left Hand: Olimar and I have a pet peeve against having two (or more) augmentation dots performing opposite functions on the same note. I refer here to having the augmentation dot in effect on a note that is indicated to be played staccato. These have counterproductive effects on each other and is very strange. I'm assuming the note isn't supposed to be as long as a standard dotted quarter, so I would suggest either (a) get rid of the augmentation dot thus lowering the note value to either a quarter or an eighth, keeping the staccato; or (b) do shorten the note value as aforementioned but also eliminate the staccato. Depends on how long you want that note to be.
-Systems 2-3, Right Hand: Rather than use two separate 8va markings (one for each line), lay down the one on system two, click anywhere else on the page, then drag the end of the 8va first to the end of the system then down to the next system without letting go of the mouse button. The result should be an 8va on both systems with the second line of it being in parentheses, and thus a continuation of the original.
-Measure 5: Rather than "gradually increase the noise", I would put "crescendo slightly with each repetition". This is most likely just a translation thing.
-Measure 5, Left Hand: The dotted half rest should be split into two dotted quarter rests.
Finally, regarding the "x18", if I understand the scenario properly, then in the game the player has only the temporal equivalent to 18 track repetitions to beat the level before they run out of time. If that's the case, I would suggest taking it out altogether because that reasoning could also be applied to Super Mario Bros. where there's a set time limit (and thus a set number of repetitions). But you aren't arranging the game's sounds. You're arranging a piece of music that was used for the game. The piece of music itself is probably very capable of continuing on past the game's time limit. Of course, if I'm wrong, then we'll have to do something different.
