Ace Combat 5 – Into the Dusk

I’ve never played any of the Ace Combat games. My introduction to the series was via the opening theme of Ace Combat 5 – The Unsung War:

I was rather excited when I got a request to arrange some sheet music for Into the Dusk. While not quite as epic as the opening/main theme, Keiki Kobayashi’s touch just works wonders for the entire soundtrack. To clarify: this song:

Here’s some sheet music for your enjoyment. This is a somewhat difficult/high-intermediate arrangement. Ignore the notes you can’t reach, or just arpeggiate them. I’m quite aware that some folks don’t have a 10-note hand span, but I rarely write with consideration :)

Sheet Music

You Are the Pan – Hook

Anyone who grew up in the 90s has probably seen Spielberg’s highly underrated classic Hook, which remains one of my favorite films that deal with nostalgia, growing up, and embracing the future.

The soundtrack is by the ever-wonderful John Williams. Someone recently requested some sheet music for You Are the Pan, so I created some.

Pushing Onwards – VVVVVV

I’ve loved VVVVVV since it came out and took hold of my free time. I still have to beat Veni, Vedi, Vici…

I’ve wanted to play Pushing Onwards forever. I chose UnofficialSoundtrack‘s arrangement. Sheet music available for free: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/23040402/Pushing%20Onwards.pdf.

There is also a different version out there by arranger and musician Brent Kennedy. His version is more of an arrangement than a reduction – which this performance is. I will never have the dexterity that @UnofficialSoundtrack has. Have a listen to his performance… which is much cleaner and much more epic:

Pushing Onwards, along with the rest of the fantastic VVVVVV soundtrack was composed by Magnus Pålsson.
