This is just a light piano cover of Theme de La Cite des Enfants Perdus (The City of Lost Children) by Angelo Badalamenti. The original is a string arrangement and also a bit longer. Of course, this one is nowhere near as nice as the original, but I haven't heard it in piano before and got around to playing it.

Someone who actually plays piano can probably arrange this much better though as my use of chords is a rather limited.

The original score is in the credits to the movie - there are three distinct songs. The one I'm trying to cover is just the last one with the strings. Annoyingly enough, this version isn't on the OST which has a less peaceful version of the song.

Superb :)
Would you mind if I use this in one of my games?

pftq responds:

Don't mind at all. Thanks!

This is lovely, man! :) Amazing cover, very flowing.

pftq responds:

Thanks!

Nice! Very sweet and mellow. The arrangement sounds rather pianistic, despite what you say :) If you've got a score I could perhaps say some more on the subject.

Mainly just two things I reacted to in this track: the pauses at phrase endings get pretty old quick, and kinda ruins the flow of the piece. Other than that, it's really a bit on the bassy side mixwise, I'd EQ it a bit.

Some more variety could perhaps be nice in arrangement technique, but it definitely works, especially given it's length.

pftq responds:

Thanks - the pauses and bassy-ness I think might come down to preference, as I was thinking of whether or not to address this while editing. I just ended up liking it more with the pauses and the some of the effect you get from letting the lower keys reverb into the mix.

The variety was probably what I meant about the arrangement - as I find it very difficult to vary my left hand while playing, so I had to keep the changes pretty minimal. Glad it still worked though.

The original score is in the credits to the movie - there are three distinct songs. The one I'm trying to cover is just the last one with the strings. Annoyingly enough, this version isn't on the OST which has a less peaceful version of the song.

Pretty good song compared to what others sound in this genre sound like

pftq responds:

There are plenty of good songs in this genre - just hard to find sometimes. :)
