About

Hey, I'm Jonathan Aldrich, amateur composer/arranger and video game music enthusiast.  My former album, "Video Game Variations", is a collection of jazzy piano arrangements of twenty of my favorite tracks from the Super Mario, Kirby, and EarthBound / MOTHER series, and can be found on iTunes and Loudr.fm.  If you haven't already, I highly recommend you check it out!

"Video Game Variations 2" will follow very much the same format, with another twenty piano arrangements of various Nintendo tunes lasting a total of over 75 minutes.  The CD also contains three extended medleys, two of which are from Kirby Canvas Curse and MOTHER / EarthBound Zero, and the third of which is all-new material from another classic game.

If this project meets its goal in time, the CD will go on sale this coming December for $10 on Loudr.fm, and a selection of ten tracks will be available for $5 on iTunes.  As a bonus incentive, as soon as the goal is met, I'll release a digital download of full sheet music transcriptions of three of my arrangements from MOTHER / EarthBound Zero, so be sure to spread the word out to get these out as soon as possible!

Risks and challenges

The tracks for the "Video Game Variations 2" CD are already recorded and mostly mixed, so there shouldn't be any major obstacles in getting the audio produced; the funds raised through this project will largely go towards the initial up-front costs for launching the CD through Joypad Records, as well as covering some of the initial royalty costs. If this project is successfully funded, I see no reason why the CD should not be able to be released by the year's end.
