The Sound of the End ~ NieR Automata Piano Collections

The Sound of the End, music by Keigo Hoashi, arranged by Duke of Pianeet, transcribed by themrzakid, played by Richard Yang on Yamaha N1X.

Other than Bipolar Nightmare being the most difficult piece in the album (I can’t find any proper transcription to record), “The Sound of the End” comes in 2nd in terms of difficulty. But the difficult part only lasts roughly 2 minutes. After that I can’t imagine any viewer watching the remaining of this video since it’s so slow and boring. The first half contains some very big octave jumps and right below the slow second half, a chaotic section that zakid did a great job transcribing. At time of this writing, this is the only video of this arrangement on YouTube played by a human being.

NieR Automata Piano Collections is even better than the Gestalt & Replicant album I released previously. The pieces are slightly more difficult and sophisticated. It is unfortunate that Square Enix did not release the official sheet music for this album for some unknown reason. My recording is based on transcriptions that I could find (by zakid and rach3master; Bipolar Nightmare is the only piece I could not find a proper transcription to record). Since these are transcriptions, they might not be 100% identical to the OST recordings. Unless something was particularly out-of-place, I followed the sheet music primarily. Such a beautiful album must be recorded with the best quality of sound; how else to do it but to record with my new Yamaha N1X through direct audio, no more crappy iPhone mic!
