Dekkadeci's Medleys, Unfaithful Arrangements, and Non-VGM/-Piano Transcriptions

(1/12) > >>

Dekkadeci:
I have relatively few medleys, unfaithful arrangements, and transcriptions of non-video game music, so I'll be posting sporadically here at best. I do have an idea for a new, not-created-yet unfaithful arrangement, though...

Again, I'll slowly publish them on Musescore. You can listen to my works on Musescore's website (the audio will not be mastered there). These medleys and unfaithful arrangements may contain bridging melodies I wholly composed as well as music based on the source material (that isn't precisely the source material). I will not be publishing my pieces in order of arrangement. If enough of you request downloadable files, I'll start stocking up my Google Drive.

Medleys
The Legendary Air Ride March

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2296681It's The Legendary Air Ride Machine...if it were forced into march form and paired with a trio made of music from Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Skull Ganged Up On

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2415901Necrodeus's and his Skull Gang's themes sound rather similar, and this arrangement combines them into one virtuoso showpiece.

MegaloTalia

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2546131A high-octane jazz medley of nearly all UnderTale pieces, this is rather like Megalovania in the style of Dummy!...with Hopes and Dreams woven in.

The Polka of Your Best Friend

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2652436A high-octane medley of all UnderTale pieces, this swift polka mashes up Your Best Friend, Bergentrückung, and more.

Blazing Fast Battle - Divine Protection Required

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/3602961This heavy metal remix of pieces from Fire Emblem Gaiden is so blazing fast, regular protection will not do.

Prism of Delight

* Google Drive MP3 (LANDR-Enhanced): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B039DrYUfeUZWS1MbS1uWjhlOGsThis sonata-allegro on the Prism Plains theme from Kirby: Squeak Squad and "Victory's Delight" from Bravely Default was written for Arrangement Contest No. 8 in B# "Mix"olydian "Amalgamation".

Spin the Cat

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4427861Mashing up "The Feline Duplication Incident." by someone named Œnanthic and "Spin Ye Bottle" from Shovel Knight, this aims for a round of 8-bit potion- and cat-tossing fun.

The Wayfarer and the Setting Star

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5142528

* Google Drive WAV: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rg33dkVV5FglkqYJQflWWV20L3H78QwEThis version of "Magolor the Wayfarer" (the main menu theme of Kirby's Return to Dream Land) done in the style and meter of "My Friend and the Setting Sun..." (the Revenge of Meta Knight ending theme from Kirby Super Star) was written for Arrangement Contest No. 9 in C-triple-flat major “An Odd Time for a Contest!”. Oh yeah, I also did toss in quotes of other Kirby themes.

Unfaithful Arrangements
Variations on Holst's Thaxted

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2271611A reverent double theme and variations on Gustav Holst's hymn tune Thaxted (a.k.a. the central theme of "Jupiter" from The Planets), this starts off slowly and gracefully with a faithful (enough) version of the hymn but gradually builds to a climax. The climax breaks at Bar 104, and the piece ends mystically and quietly.

La Sonata Danza

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2428411It's Gioacchino Rossini's song La Danza...but in E minor instead of A minor, forced into sonata-allegro form, and now technically impossible to play for solo piano. Shucks.

Sleigh Ride Galop

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2538331A fun rearrangement of Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride in the style of a galop. ...Got taken out by a copyright strike, sadly.

Peppa'd Pig Blues

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2628671It's the 12-bar blues...version of the Peppa Pig theme!

O Come, All Ye Faithful (Piano Duo Arrangement)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/3014761I'd say that typical arrangements of Christmas carols don't end with march variations, unlike this version.

Vladimir Horowitz Would Be Proud

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/3500976Unless you've played through "Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course", you've probably never heard of Willard A. Palmer, Morton Manus, or Amanda Vick Lethco. Nevertheless, this is an virtuosic Liszt-style arrangement of a scherzo of theirs.

Klein Kirby Invention

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4101806Ever noticed how much the Cookie Country 1 theme of Kirby's Return to Dream Land sounds like Bach's Little Fugue in G Minor at one point? If you did, this Baroque-style arrangement of the Cookie Country 1 theme is for you!

Are They Trying to Battle Us?

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4294621Based on an "Attempt at a Battle Theme" by someone named Œnanthic, this string quartet version does not stray too far from the source.

Ragging Csikós Post

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4409191This piece follows the grand tradition of ragtime rearrangements of classical music. In this case, Hermann Necke's Csikós Post suffers through this treatment.

Night Torch at the Sky Fortress

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4599641This remix of Waterflame's Sky Fortress rearranges the melodies of that work a lot.

Sonata Completed

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4689281This is a relatively reverent completion of an incomplete "Sonata" by someone named Lorenzo Miceli.

Scherzo on "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4847816I'd say that "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" typically doesn't switch keys between sections, unlike this piano four hands arrangement.

Concert Paraphrase on "Dragon Fight!"

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/4974211Another devilishly virtuosic arrangement for piano, this time of Blue Dragon's regular battle theme, "Dragon Fight!"

My Birthday Got Interrupted

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5124289It'll be tricky to find the excerpts of "Happy Birthday" in this modernist rearrangement for solo piano, but trust me, it's possible....

Variations on "The Mob Song"

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5150357A reverent and relatively easy theme and variations on "The Mob Song" from Beauty and the Beast, this alternates between tense and beautiful sections and ends with a bang.

Unforced Way

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5248353This set of variations on part of "Force Your Way" from Final Fantasy VIII shows the beauty that portion has when its usual accompaniment is stripped away.

We Three Kings Waltz

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5358948Now with more sections than the original Christmas carol "We Three Kings" actually has!

Finish This Score...Finished!

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5471312
* Google Drive MP3 (Quaver Crafter Custom Audio): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1NkTDl-Bt6Zp9wozZmECoxO4RNMcb0ovSDone for a contest, this is a completion of a piano starter by someone named Quaver Crafter.

Toccata on "Cannonball"

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5535784This rock-style piano toccata on "Cannonball", the 3rd and last final boss theme of Mega Man Zero 3, comes complete with its own solo!

Etude After "Fuoco" From Roland Dyens's Libra Sonatine

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5602601This piano etude adds accompaniment for "Fuoco", the 3rd movement of Roland Dyens's Libra Sonatine.

O Canada Waltz

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5625453This delightful waltz is based on Canada's national anthem, "O Canada".

Romp on a Simple Theme

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5675350Done for another contest, this takes a simple theme from someone named musical.catfish05 on a quick-paced jazzy journey.

Toccata on the Aggretsuko Opening Theme

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5723817This is a full-blooded metal toccata on the opening theme of the Netflix series Aggretsuko. Beware: the original opening theme is pretty metal itself....

God Rest Ye Funky Gentlemen

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5894232It's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", only funk-influenced and with a solo! ...And it's for piano four hands!

Joy to the Jazzy World!

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/6485654An exuberant piano four hands jazz arrangement of "Joy to the World" is now at your fingertips!

Mixing More Ingredients

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/6745637This rondo-form arrangement of "Mallow's Trial" from Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon keeps the chipper mood and the bounce of the original.

Variations on Beethoven's Turkish March

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/6768856This double theme and variations on Ludwig van Beethoven's "Turkish March" keeps the energy of the original but puts new spins on it.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (Piano Four Hands Arrangement)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/7234761This arrangement of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" for piano four hands passes the melody between players and increases in intensity as it goes along.

Non-VGM Transcriptions
In Storm and Sunshine (Concert Paraphrase)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2361736John Clifford Heed's hit march In Storm and Sunshine finally has a piano transcription! ...At least if you respect only the first repeats. Second repeats stop becoming faithful and start becoming devilishly virtuosic.

Elysian Quest OST Track #6 - Dangerous Enemy (Boss)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2769521Composed by OMMAIGADD, this is a piano transcription of a boss theme of the under-development, unreleased video game "Elysian Quest".

Prelude in C Minor, Op. 28, No. 20 (Chopin) (Band Arrangement)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2793561The unusual instrumentation is due to its genesis as an arrangement for a contest, but this is otherwise a fairly standard concert band-like arrangement of Chopin's famous prelude. The flute generally plays one octave higher than anything in the original sheet music.

The Dark Journey

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/3424341Composed by Real Faction, this is a piano transcription of an ambient chiptune loop, easy to put in your video games. Perhaps the video games' characters are lost in the twilit snow...

Pomp and Circumstance March No. 2 in A Minor, Op. 39 (Elgar)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5310430

Pomp and Circumstance March No. 4 in G Major, Op. 39 (Elgar)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5350806

Zaghnol Comes

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/6900599This is a piano transcription of a particularly progressive metal OverClocked ReMix of "Hunter's Chance" from Final Fantasy IX, arranged by Juan "SixtoSounds" Medrano.

VGM Non-Piano Transcriptions
The Wonderful 101
Tables Turn (B♭ Clarinet Transcription)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5368084This power-up theme is one of the most popular themes in The Wonderful 101.
In this transcription, Bars 50-56 are the ending I semi-improvised.

Kirby
Distant Traveler (Magolor Race EX Theme) (B♭ Clarinet Transcription)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5409668Originally a stage theme in Kirby's Dream Collection, this gained a second life as a stage theme in "Dedede's Drum Dash".
In this transcription, Bars 47-63 are the ending I semi-improvised.

Save the Kingdom! Ordeal Quest (B♭ Clarinet Transcription)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/6284699This plays when fighting against some Ordeal bosses in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe.
In this transcription, the last part of Bar 45 is the ending I semi-improvised.

Kirby Fighters Deluxe - Title Theme (B♭ Clarinet Transcription)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/6837055This, the title theme of Kirby Fighters Deluxe, returns in Kirby Battle Royale as a battle theme.

In this transcription, Bars 187-205 are the ending I semi-improvised.

Metal Remixes
Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109, Movement 2 (Beethoven) (Metal Remix)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2596481This heavy metal remix of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109, Movement 2 attempts to keep it reverent...but how reverent can metal remixes of classical music be by default?

Spring Celebration (Stephen Chatman) (Metal Remix)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5101011Another relatively reverent heavy metal remix, this time of a piece called "Spring Celebration" by Stephen Chatman that you might remember from your piano exams.

Shadow Rituals (Michael Markowski) (Metal Remix)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5792316Yet another relatively reverent heavy metal remix, this time of a concert band piece called "Shadow Rituals" by Michael Markowski.

Piano Sonata No. 1, Movement 3 (Julian Cochran) (Metal Remix)

* Musescore: https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5877211Still another relatively reverent heavy metal remix, this time of the third movement of Julian Cochran's Piano Sonata No. 1.

Dekkadeci:
I've now published my first VGM medley!

The Legendary Air Ride March is a Sousa-esque march made virtually entirely of music from Kirby games. It can be listened to here. That's also where you can see the sheet music! If you want downloadable sheet music, ask me enough times and I'll put it on Google Drive.

(I finished working on this before JDMEK5 posted his arrangement of The Legendary Air Ride Machine. I realize that several of the harmonies are wrong, especially after The Legendary Air Ride Machine has looped once.)

Dekkadeci:
If you like music that isn't from video games, I've made a concert paraphrase (a spicy piano transcription) of J. C. Heed's march In Storm and Sunshine here! You can take it significantly slower than I indicate.

Dekkadeci:
If you like music that is from video games, I've made an arrangement of Necrodeus and his Skull Gang's themes! It's called Skull Ganged Up On, and you can listen to it here.

EDIT: If you like heavy corruptions of music that isn't from video games, I arranged Rossini's La Danza into sonata-allegro form a long time ago, called it La Sonata Danza, and published it today here. Thing is, it's now in E minor instead of A minor...and it's impossible to play for solo piano.

Dekkadeci:
If you care that I just released an arrangement of a Christmas song in the summer, I've published Sleigh Ride Galop today! Leroy Anderson's wintertime hit is now in the style of a galop, and you can listen to it and get the sheet music here.
