“Traverse Town” Theme on Piano (Arranged by my wife!)

One of the benefits of being married to a very talented musician is that on a Sunday afternoon I can ask her to listen to some video game music then on the spot create a custom arrangement and play for me.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, Bri really enjoyed watching me play through Kingdom Hearts. I didn’t have to try hard to convince her to create a custom arrangement of “Traverse Town” and put it on Youtube for me.  Enjoy!

I think I’ve even convinced her to take requests, so if you’d like to hear something let me know. I’m working on getting an EverQuest theme or two from her, and definitely something from Zelda, Mario, and Minecraft.

  • Kingdom Hearts is an awesome adventure set in a mash up of Square and Disney franchises. The original game (now rereleased on other platforms) can be brutally difficult and doesn’t lead you by the hand at all, but contains a great story. The gameplay is fun too. Worth a shot if you have any love for older games. There are like 8 games right now with a new one on the way.

  • Good job. Square has some good music writers. Great that she learned it so fast! She might like “To Zanarkand” from FFX. The whole Final Fantasy series has some well written comps.

  • She has this insane talent to hear a song a couple of times then just go to the Piano and play it. I’ll pass along the recommendation for “To Zanarkand” and see what she does! 🙂

  • I was also thinking Final Fantasy has plenty of good songs to choose from. “Balamb Garden” from VIII would be awesome. I think there’s also a lot of really nice piano music in IX. Which reminds me, I would like to play through IX again…

    “To Zanarkand” of course was also the tune that initially popped into my head 🙂
