I've been working on a new album recently called "Keys of Legend". It is a piano arrangement album of various Zelda songs from every Zelda game all the way from The Legend of Zelda to The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. This will be the first album I have ever done and I would love all the support I could get. The album will be available for free download on https://www.jacksonharris.bandcamp.com by September 31, 2014 (The Bandcamp page is not entirely set up yet) I released a teaser/sample track on my soundcloud account of the Fight against Byrne https://www.soundcloud.com/sage98/fight-against-byrne-duet

I also have a couple of social media sites set up so that you can stay up-to-date on where I am in the making of the album. I also have created a youtube channel where I will also post the songs of the album once they are released.
These sites are not just for the one album but also for any other tracks or album I do, so following them would be greatly appreciated.

I hope you all will enjoy my work and the full album when it's released!

so question/feedbacky kind of thing

i listened to the track, and it's nice. although, i'm wondering (since you don't specify in your post) - are you pianist? i mean, it seems unlikely human hands played that piece of music. at least not two hands (possibly suggested, although not directly indicated by the "duet" in the title) plus the track is clearly quantized. so while, by definition, it is a piano arrangement, it feels like it betrays the idea of what a *piano album* ought to be.

i guess it doesn't really matter one way or another, as the work you put in and the arrangements are still just that. but as a pianist, i couldn't help but to ask. because i would be much, much more interested hearing what you can arrange to play in a single sit down than layered and perfected piano software.

In a way I am a pianist. Professional? no, currently it is hard for me to use both hands in fast pieces and I am trying to improve that as a musician. The track was not played by human hands (could it be, yes). I actually thought of making the album with an actual piano in the piano when I can acquire the right equipment to do so. Currently I am more of an experimenter with my arrangements and remixes. I am still getting used to the feel of making new tracks and making the tracks into something of my own. I do not have the highest quality equipment either which makes things much more difficult. I currently do all my arranging and remixing on a first generation IPad. I hope to in the future have a laptop and a computer program where I can do much more with my music. So this album that I plan on releasing will definitely not be my best (other than what I can currently provide), but it does leave room for improvement for the future. I just want to give people a taste of what I can do currently and see how they react. Hopefully they like what I can currently provide and will stick around as I improve and develop OC-Remix quality works.
