Composer: * My Own Transcription
Sample Producer: Piotr Grabowski
Sample Set: 2012 Kamiński, St. Anne's, Długa Kościelna
Software: GrandOrgue
Genre: Video Game Music (VGM)
When mentioning organ music, most non-organists think of a dark, rusty and clerical mystery, right? Wrong!

There's plenty of video game music (often called "VGM" or "BGM" for "background music") out there that IMO perfectly fits the organ and deserves a transcription. Nowadays, a lot of VGM is completely orchestrated and not the 8-bit beep stuff anymore.

In this little series, I'd like to introduce the genre to those who're interested, and I hope that you have fun with it.

On May 1st 2015, I played a complete Zelda medley of about 35 minutes on the grand new IV+P Schuke organ (117 ranks, 92 stops) at the Magdeburg cathedral. (What an extraordinary event for a newbie like me...!) The YT recording at contains the same title, but played in a different mood.

Game: The Legend of Zelda (various episodes)
Publisher: Nintendo
Composer: Koji Kondo

(The 2nd half of the piece is improvised and, over the measures, turned into something that could be called "hand registration training". Remember, the Dluga Koscielna Kaminski has neither a crescendo nor a swell pedal.)
Performance: Live
