This is my transcription of the first track of the Tip of the Spear Suite from the Halo: Reach Soundtrack.

This transcription is pretty difficult, and there are some parts which are especially tricky to perform (please see below). Once again, pedaling, articulation and dynamics are mostly left to the pianist's discretion. The sheet music is mostly a guideline.

Also, this is not a direct transcription, I have added several notes to certain parts of the pieces to make it sound a little better (and of course I might have gotten some notes wrong).

Here is a transcription of Orbital Drop Shock Trooper from Halo 3: ODST.

Credits to Benjamin Bergem aka. The Halo-Dragon for his transcription of this song (http://rampancy.net/blog/HaloDragon/28/11/2009/Orbital_Drop_Shock_Troopers), as I relied rather heavily on his version for the middle section (specifically, bars 69-111, which is almost identical to his version).

This version attempts to incorporate more of the orchestral parts.

This is my transcription of 'Foreboding Dream', which can be heard on the playbar at http://thewaytheirworldended.com/.

Short intro: The Way Their World Ended (also known as 'Intimation' at http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/index.php?f=252) is a fan-made Alternate Reality Game (ARG), based heavily off the I Love Bees ARG which was used to promote Halo 2. It has been running for almost a year now, and is most likely drawing to a close (I think) as of time of writing.

Here is a transcription of Earth City from Halo 2 for the piano (Now with E3 part). It's pretty difficult, so just keep practicing. :)

Many thanks to Spencer "Poop Scoop" Anunsen for his transcription of Earth City for the orchestra; I got most of the notes from there.

Some parts of the MIDI might sound a bit wierd, I was messing around a bit with the dynamics and stuff but generally it sounds ok.

Pedaling, dynamics and articulation are left to the pianist's discretion. Enjoy!

This is a modified version of Jonathan's excellent transcription of One Final Effort for the piano (also available on this site).

As the title states, this is a harder version, and is meant for peope who want more of a challenge. Do enjoy!

Much credit goes to Jonathan for the original transcription, as parts of this score are still the original. Pedaling is left to the pianist's discretion.

UPDATED VERSION: Added some more parts mostly, and a bit of fingering added as well.
