New Music Videos (And Sneak Peek From The Upcoming New Album)!
Recently, I've started writing more and more of my own arrangements and have found great joy in doing so. As I've announced a little while ago, I've been working on my next album, featuring all-Studio-Ghibli soundtrack music album, that's supposed to come out later this year. For the first time, this new album will contain many of my own arrangements, along with some other commissioned ones. I'm thrilled to be working on this wonderful music, and thrilled to show it to you when it's done.
Last week, I finished my arrangement for the song "The Name of Life (Inochi no Namae)" from one of my all time favorite movies "Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi)", and recorded and shot a video for it at my home. It's the first sneak peek for you guys of my new album; this track will be on the release! I'm so excited to show you; the original song is a wonderfully beautiful piece of music, and I've tried my best to capture the feel of it in my piano arrangement. I hope you like it! :-)
A couple weeks before that, I released another one of my own arrangements: "Dearly Beloved" from the hugely popular video game "Kingdom Hearts". I had gotten a bunch of requests to cover that song, so I tried my hand at it. :-)
In other news, I just got some very exciting news about upcoming performances, and will keep you posted!
Have a great weekend!
