Grandma – NieR Gestalt & Replicant Piano Collections, music by Keiichi Okabe, arranged by Masato Koda, played by Richard Yang on Yamaha N1X with Garritan CFX.
I originally recorded the piece with the stock CFX sound on Yamaha N1X (link HERE) before re-recording with Garritan CFX. You can hear the huge difference in sound quality!
“Grandma” is definitely one of my favorites in the album. The rubato, jazzy runs, and powerful jumps, this piece has so much to offer. I’ve never played NieR before, so it’s hard for me to imgaine why the piece is named “Grandma”. By listening to the music itself, I don’t believe anyone would associate this with “Grandma”.
NieR Gestalt & Replicant Piano Collections is such a beautiful album with mostly intermediate arrangements. It is so beautiful I had to wait until I got my Yamaha N1X to record the album with direct audio instead of my regular set up with the iPhone mic. This album is considerably easier than the NieR Automata album, which I will release after this one. But being easier does not take the beauty away from the music. Some of the favorite tracks are Song of the Ancients, Grandma, Gods Bound by Rules, and Ashes of Dreams.
