Dr. Zomboss’ theme hurts my hands

I guess I haven’t been doing enough Hanon exercises lately, because some of the stuff I’ve been playing for the piano version of Dr. Zomboss’ theme has really tired out my hands, haha 😛 On the upside, I think it’s coming along nicely. It was a bit tougher for me to just improvise a piano version for this theme because the original arrangement has so much going on. And since a lot of what makes up the song has to do with the beat and various synth instruments, making it sound good on the piano is a bit challenging… but hopefully you guys will like the end result!  My goal is to have it up sometime this week.

I’m also working on Ultimate Battle; I wanted to make sure to cover those two songs since a lot of people have been requesting them ^_^

Hi everyone… for the 3rd installment of my PvZ piano series I’ve uploaded 3 new videos. I’m sorry the video isn’t as sharp as last time, the sun kept coming and going so my lighting wasn’t as bright. But hopefully it’s not too bad!

The first one is called “Moongrains”… you can hear this music during the first night level.

This one is called “Choose Your Seeds”… it is the music that plays right before each level where you have to (you guessed it) choose your seeds 😛

And lastly, here is “Watery Graves”… this music is heard during the pool levels. Actually, if you listen carefully to the in-game music, you can catch the underlying melody that inspired the main theme song.

As promised, here is part 2 of the Plants vs. Zombies piano music series… this one is called “Loonboon” and it’s the music that plays during mini-game levels like “Walnut Bowling.”

When George first told me he needed music for the mini-game levels, I had a bit of trouble coming up with a theme. I played the game for a bit, went on a few walks, ate some chocolate… but none of the normal catalysts were working for me. But inspiration struck from an unexpected source: our black cat (his name is “Metroid”). He was in play-mode at the time; chasing us around the house, attacking stuffed animals, attempting to balance on places that were too narrow for him, etc. And at that moment I got this song in my head:

And because I talked about our cat, I have to show you a video of him doing a couple dog-tricks (he’s really smart):

Hi everyone! Wow, it’s certainly been a busy month! The week before last was GDC, which was a blast (interesting speakers, met a lot of cool people, went to some fun parties, even won an award!), but the conference certainly took a toll on me… literally on the drive back from the last event my nose started running and by the time I got back, I was down for the count… I was sick all of last week 😦 But that’s okay, it was worth it!

I’d like to talk more about the conference later, but for now I want to post a video of something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now… piano versions of Plants vs Zombies songs ^_^ Here is the first one, “Graze the Roof” which is what you hear during the Roof Level. Sorry that I’m practically inaudible here… I recorded it from my iPhone since I couldn’t figure out a convenient way to do it using my webcam.
