Now that summer is here and I have way too much time on my hands, I decided to make a self-arrangement project and arrange all of the tracks from a game, preferably one with a low number of songs. I made a poll in the OP with four games (plus track numbers) along with an "Other" option, and if you select that one and reply in this thread I'll add it onto the poll. If no-one votes on the thread I'll probably do Snakebird just because there's only nine tracks and I've already arranged one of them.

H. 1 – RADIANT HISTORIA


Arranged RADIANT HISTORIA from... Radiant Historia. Because of the amount of parts that the track has, I decided to arrange this track for two pianos, and I think that it made a better arrangement in the end. I will probably compress it to solo piano in the future, but it will likely not be completely accurate to the original and be more creative with how it handles playing four staves in the space of two. As for the arrangement itself, there wre two main problems. The first was continuity and "sharing the melody;" I felt like passing any part of the recurring 8th note pattern in Piano 2 to any other hand would be awkward because there's no natural stopping point for it, and as a result Piano 1 gets the melody all of the time. The second is the crammed voices; all but a couple of the voices are in the treble/alto ranges, so there's a lot of cramming on the Piano 1 part (P2 can't take these because of issue 1). I also may have added too many slurs and directions and now I kind of feel like this.

Also seeing as there's only one active member that has a Radiant Historia arrangement on the site, it's pretty obvious who cast the only vote in the poll.

*googles historia*
oh yes good musics very good musics

To stay organized and because i havent finished the game yet I'll probably go down the track list, so next up would be Mechanical Kingdom. If anyone else would like to help with my project they can; just make sure that you claim tracks. If I get enough support for others I could make a separate unofficial AP thread.

H. 2 – MECHANICAL KINGDOM


Arranged Mechanical Kingdom from Radiant Historia. I decided to make this a solo piano arrangement, but with the number of parts that it has it could likely be made into one for two pianos. Speaking of which, after playing through more of the game I realized that a lot of the tracks had two-pianos potential. To ease playing and to not have one hand jumping around very fast, I used a combination of clef changes and cross-staving so the left hand could play both the low hits and (most of) the recurring eighth notes. I thought about using a 3+3+2 rhythm pattern, but I decided against it because not all parts followed it. This sheet was a good contender for my 4-measures-per-system template, but the clef changes fell apart when copying it over.

Hey, if you want, I can do a few tracks.
I will plan on doing Edge of Green, The Red Locus, Memories of the World, and Historia.

Noted in the chart in the OP.



Arranged A Great Spirit Lies in Wait from Ōkami [Okami]. Despite being very percussion-oriented and not fitting well for piano at all, I decided to arrange it because I wanted to play around with the percussion that was featured in the track. I ended up adding six different kinds of percussion and extended techniques as well as an "arranger's note" saying that my approximations may not be completely accurate to the original. The first half of the track and the last measure is played without time, so I wrote in a general "Adagietto Rubato" tempo and approximated the timing. I also grouped these measures in a 6/4 or 3/2 pattern despite being in a 12/8 time signature, and I can't anyway, but I didn't know if I should have changed it. With all the text everywhere, the arrangement will also need an overhaul of the formatting.

The Radiant Historia project should return soon. I just felt like doing this.
