[Classical] Emmanuel G. - Moonlight Sonata on a Korg Odyssey



working on the two other parts, but they aren't as "easy" (not that this one was either, but at least I could relate to my playing it on the piano)

Re: [Classical] Emmanuel G. - Moonlight Sonata on a Korg Odyssey

No idea how classical music should sound on Korg. For a moment I was waiting for a kick
I guess it is hard to recreate the variable tension and sensitivity of the piano keys. Also, on the piano it is way more atmospheric imo... Korg sound makes it a bit hah futuristic/cosmic....
Also, those high pitches irritate a bit my ears (but it's more personal, my ears are very sensitive).
Hope Beethoven would be happy with your interpretation

Hi, thanks for commenting and for your input, fortunately, I have played the piece myself on the piano, so I had that as a reference to start. I wanted to recreate my own interpretation but with other instruments than a piano and two hands. But it is still from one single instrument. I don't pretend that my interpretation is best, or even accurate to the piece, it certainly isn't.

As for the futuristic/cosmic, this kind of music makes me think a lot about hans zimmer, in that case his take on the Interstellar OST, I felt the music seemed to be going in that direction.

That, and also the relationship I have between myself, classical music and psychedelic experiences, so I always seem to be listening to classical music with a somewhat "cosmic" (for lack of a better word) lens. I like the grandiose yet very sensible approach of romantic and post romantic music, Wagner's operas or Mahler symphonies. They are so big, yet so deep and universal, this is something I really want to achieve one day, maybe I won't ever get there, but I sure can try my best.


Sorry for your ears man, I kinda like noisy stuff, I went easy on that one, I made another version (earlier) that was much much more noisy :p


Beethoven, man I don't know what he would have thought of that. But I guess his music outlives him and that's the best a musician can ever hope to achieve, so he's probably alright with my little noises. I did it with heart and sincere appreciation of his work.



Synths are expressive in a way that I think works great with classical music

Re: [Classical] Emmanuel G. - Moonlight Sonata on a Korg Odyssey

I think a faster tempo would translate better on this synth. You do lose some of the piano subtleties with key depth, loudness, and phrasing.

However, no matter the medium I love me some Beethoven! I agree the horns have a Zimmer sound.

I like the variation, speaking as a lover of this piece. Nice work!

thanks man, it means a lot, I understand I have quite personal interpretations, and I wouldn't be the one to say whether or not they are "good" or "correct" even.
but my music is as honest as I can make it.

Re: [Classical] Emmanuel G. - Moonlight Sonata on a Korg Odyssey

Man, I love the 80's sound this synth produces. Really cool idea. the dissonances really stick out lol Great work

I had to add this bit in. I feel like the person I trusted with my life and secrets has betrayed me by revealing he is a terminator set back in time to kill me. Thats how the song makes me feel.
