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.
A beautiful soundtrack by James Newton Howard. Composition copyright (c) Universal Pictures Music. I’ve always loved this score; lush strings, suspensions, and gorgeous resolutions to Newton’s counterpoint magic.
My love for Rockstar Games dates back to GTA2, so I quite naturally had a blast watching people play L.A. Noire. Andrew Hale’s fantastic soundtrack has been the sound-scape backdrop of my workday for the past few weeks.
I was quite happy when someone commissioned me (quite a while ago) to arrange the Main Theme from the soundtrack. Here is a rough transcription for a basic jazz ensemble: alto sax, trumpet, piano/keyboard, vibraphone, bass. Drums omitted, sorry.
