Earth City For Piano (Full)
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!
22 Aug: Slight updates.
Difficulty: Quite Hard
- Sheet music (.pdf)
- Midi sequence (.mid)
- Finale Notation file (.mus, .bak)
Tip: When playing the running octaves (esp. in left hand) try not to stiffen your wrist, relax a little, and let your wrist do some of the work so your arm muscles don't get tired too quickly.
Cool this arrangement owns
Very nice. I like how you incorporated each of the main parts seamlessly. I will admit, octaves in the 12/8 will be tricky. I can't wait to start playing this.
Rest assured that its all possible (including the octaves from bar 88-91). have fun!
Really, really, REALLY cool. Thanks so much for making a transcription of this, I've been waiting forever.
When you say an E3 version, do you mean an orchestral version?!?!?! I'd really love that!
I actually had a typo in the description, I meant "(Now with E3 Part)". The E3 part refers to the first 38 bars, which are heard in the Halo 2 build that was used in E3, but are not included in the OST.
If you were looking for an orchestral version, check out http://rampancy.net/page/bungie/31/05/2005/Earth_City, which is Spencer Anunsen's transcription of Earth City, which is basically where I got most of the notes from.
Flippin' sweet, man. I can't wait to try it.
