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.
For those who own a 7.1 surround system, an 8-channel FLAC file can be picked up here to get an impression of what it will sound like in my living room:
