One of the very many things I started but never finished. This was also a self-set challenge. Try to figure out and imitate the dreamy chord voices of 10cc’s “I’m Not In Love”. You can use this for your Karaoke party if you wish.
Chopin cover by Angelique.
Here another one of those tracks that somehow got lost on the website. Luckily it was still online on SoundCloud.
Some years ago, Angelique was visiting her family in The Netherlands during christmas. Her sister requested her to play the Toccata on some crappy Yamaha PSS keyboard (the PSS series has mini-keys). Angelique hooked it up to my MacBook running a decent Church Organ VSTi and this was the result…
While cleaning up the redesigned website, I came across a snippet of music Ruben once made to give me a little scare. It’s a “rock version” of Michael Nyman’s “The Piano”. I wanted to add this snippet to the page with my cover version, only do find out this tracks isn’t on our website at […]
Performed by Angelique using a not-so-great piano sample library. (Doesn’t handle the sustain pedal very well and cuts off notes.)
Aaaaaand… yet another one of those “do-you-ever-finish-anything” tracks I spend a few days on and then never looked back. Why post it in here then? Well, because I promised Angelique I would post anything on our website that had an actual recording on our filesystem. So… Eurocops was originally composed and performed by Jan Hammer […]
Another not-too-serious addition for my Ed Starink Greatest project that will probably never happen. I came across a nice music box sounds library and thought that this melody sounded great with it. Even added some real life music box noises along with the music.
This “entry” for my Ed Starink Greatest project was actually just meant as a joke and doomed be be lost in the digital afterlife forever. But somehow Angelique managed to dig it up from its binary grave and posted it on SoundCloud.
This piece was performed straight from some very Very VERY badly copied sheet music. There was no title or any other info on the sheets. Sounds like a track straight out of the “build/buy mode” from The Sims. Anyone who recognizes this piece, please let us know!
Another piano piece by Angelique. Don’t know when it was made actually.
One Man and His Droid is a song composed/programmed by Rob Hubbard for the Commodore 64 game by the same name, released by Mastertronic in 1985. This tune was playing non-stop through the entire game.
Testing the MIDI retrofit on my grand driving a synth pad. Old meets new!
Another great performance by Angelique using an unfortunate crappy sound library. This song was originally composed and performed by Billy Joel.
After our previous little project, Angelique and I decided to “practice” a bit by covering an existing piano/orchestra piece. We choose “Oceano” by Roberto Cacciapaglia (because my mother provided Angelique with the sheet music).
Another track for my planned “Ed Starink Greatest volume 1” compilation. This is the fourth track I sort of finished, but it was actually the first track I started working on and got the entire Ed Starink Greatest “project” running.
My third cover for my little Ed Starink Greatest “project”.
This is the second song I finished in a planned larger series of Ed Starink Covers. Visit the Ed Starink Wiki to hear the original and find out on which albums it appeared.
Some time ago, I promised a Facebook friend to cover one of his old tracker creations. Took me a while to actually get to it, but here it is. The original is a composition by Dave Brink, aka G.I.R.L., who made it with some tracker program a long time ago. I took the most identifiable […]
Originally by Ed Starink and first one in a planned series of Ed Starink covers. (Actually the first one I finished, “Strictly Personal” is the first one I started with and got the whole idea rolling). The original track appeared on Synthesizer Spectacular vol. 4, Synthesizer Greatest volume 7 and Synthétiseur 8 – Les Plus […]
In 1977, Vangelis released his epic “Spiral” album with the evenly epic title song. In 1989, Ed Starink released a cover version of this song on various synthesizer albums, most notably the successful Synthesizer Greatest series released by Arcade. In 1991, I did my own cover version on a Roland SoundCanvas, using Ed’s cover as […]
No, this is NOT a cover from a song by Metallica but a cover from the ORIGINAL composition by Ennio Morricone for the movie “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. I spend about two days on this and then I just never looked at it again. It was just another test to see if […]
Angelique whacking away on my “new” Gem WX2…
Powerhouse is originally a SID tune by Jeroen Tel and Thomas Mogensen, released under the name “Maniacs of Noise”. They made it for a demo on the Commodore 64. Make sure to also have a listen at the song like it was played by the good old Commodore 64 back in the 90s!
I hate this title, not the music, but the title. How the hell do you pronounce this? “Compi un autre ete de tetre?” Anyways… my mother liked this song and told me it was quite hard to play on the piano… no it wasn’t mom! But then again, this wasn’t on the piano. It’s on […]
