My name's Daniel Brown, and I live in Virginia. I am 32 years old.
I graduated from VCU with a bachelor's in piano performance.

Virtually all the sheet music and recordings on this website
1. find a track on an nsf that I like
were arranged by me. My methods are a little over-complicated,
but I have to make sure I'm not leaving anything out. Basically, I
2. convert that track into midi
3. mess with the midi in a midi sequencing program
4. write out all the notes
5. take those to a piano and rearrange it so that it works pianistically
If you want to arrange NES music, I don't recommend this way. I'd say,
find a good nsf player that lets you silence individual channels and do it by ear.
Other arrangments: Final Fantasy 4: Illusionary World was arranged by Zach Hartman
The other SNES arrangments were done using the OSV scores as a basis
(when available) and using my ear, the game's SPC, and good MIDIs
to fill in the thin parts.
The tracks were recorded in various places with varying equipment,
VCU Concert Hall: Metroid Piano (3 tracks,) Castlevania 1 part 1,
hence the difference in sound quality from track to track.
and FF4: Dreadful Fight
VCU Recital Hall: Ghosts 'N Goblins
My piano at home: Final Phantom, Project 667, and FF4: Illusionary World
My old piano teacher's studio: all the rest
Castlevania: My old piano teacher's studio
Double Dragon and Mega Man 2: My family's piano in Texas
