  1. "This level seems like an afterthought; the music however does not suggest that. :) Although it might have been composed in a very short time as well, as while the music is soothing it is fairly simple. Because it is also fairly short and not too hard to play, I decided to play it twice, before this performance. For the arrangement, I decided to play octaves with the right hand. I don't think that is faithful to the original, but it makes it sound a lot more lush and that's good. :) (in the original, the string samples make it sound so lush)
    I hope you enjoy!

    Be the first to post the timestamp for the following in the comments to earn 6 CP: when did I, in the gameplay footage, use a trick you might find in a speedrun of the game to skip obtaining the white nut? You do not need to have speedrunning knowledge in order to answer this; if you watch the video you should be able to figure out what's intended by the developers, and then what's _not_ intended will follow. ;)"

    That's it for the Ice Age covers, for now... whenever I have the time and energy for it I practise the last two Lucky Luke themes, and quite a long and regal soundtrack to one of the Dizzy games!

  2. "Having almost finished up the Lucky Luke project, in July I was listening to a rip of the soundtrack and came across a track that didn't seem familiar. An unused track? :eek: Yes, it turned out!
    I figured I should arrange that too, and so I did. It required me to learn a new technique, though, for the fast part! I couldn't figure out how to do it myself, but found a good video on YouTube, by LivingPianosVideos. I've got to say, and you can hear, that I haven't at all mastered the technique yet, but I have improved a lot throughout the months! It got to a point where I was content with it, could finally play the Credits theme well, and had time to record. I decided to just go for it. ;)
    As it happened, one of the notes on the piano was audibly out of tune. This is a bit strange, because it was tuned two months before. I hope it's not too big of a deal to anyone. :) This is a fun track, and although it is not technically part of the game I wanted to include it, because Alberto J. González did compose it for the game!
    Look forward to the epic finale of this project. :)

    Hm, I'm having trouble thinking of a question for this one. :p Make up a level theme in which this track might play to earn 6 CP. If you don't know Lucky Luke, you can make up anything that fits the theme of the music. :) Multiple people can get this reward!"
