Kantai Collection Soundtrack Medley piano arr. Animenz

Kantai Collection Soundtrack Medley, music by Natsumi Kameoka, piano arranged by Animenz, played by Richard Yang on Yamaha N1X with Garritan CFX VST.

Another Animenz’s Top 10 Most Difficult! The peak difficulty in this piece (4:01 as an example) is even more difficult than the Wall in Unravel. The reason for ranking this behind Unravel is that the difficult parts in this piece do not sustain throughout the piece (otherwise it would be INSANE). Other than being crazy difficult, this is truly a majestic masterpiece, the most advanced level of piano arrangement!

Recording the piece in full proved to be extremely difficult due to Part 3 (Decisive Battle). It’s almost impossible to record this part without mistakes. A few takes where I did well here I messed up the Victory March. Having run out of stamina to keep trying, especially with a piece this long, I had to make peace with having some major mistakes. I truly believe this is the kinda piece suited for my younger self.

0:00 – The Legendary Shipgirls
1:22 – Sortie!
2:18 – CRAZY LH Octave Jumps
2:43 – The Decisive Battle
4:01 – IMPOSSIBLE Part
4:27 – The Endless Sea
5:57 – Victory March
7:26 – INSANE Finale, MAX Speed

As with all of my performances, I have my own interpretation, so the tempo, dynamics, etc may feel quite different from the original recording. Simply put, I play the way I like it.
