NEW "The Traveler" (dif from last week!) (Destiny)

This is not to be confused with "The Traveler's Promise" from last week :) This one has been in the works for awhile and came highly requested. The original has very short sections and sounded disjointed when I put it to piano, so I rearranged the order of some of the sections and added more of my own little bits to lengthen parts...I hope you all like it!! I'm nervous!! LOL ... it picks up around the 2 min mark if you get impatient with the slow parts :) Not sure if I'll get around to sheet music for this one, but I'll try!

I like this one more than the normal version.

I don't hear much of the original song in there at all, and when I do it's in a totally different spot than it was before. It's like a super old school remix. I actually like your version a little better than what's on the album, at least as a standalone piece. I think yours follows an arc of some kind, but the album version doesn't make much sense to me. It just gets intense and quiet, intense and quiet. I imagine that's why you rearranged it the way you did.

Fan music like this was one of my favourite things at HBO years ago. I really liked the reimaginings of the Halo themes, and I like this one for the same reason. Most of those seem to be offline now. Thank goodness I have backed up copies over the years and I can still listen to them.

I would be interested to see what you would do with the Halo 2 announcement trailer music, if you're familiar with it. Would this one be a good candidate for your reworkings? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5Tn3HI3Mqs


Congrats on hitting 32, by the way.

Yes, I feel like the original track is very disjointed, but it contains some of the more familiar themes in Destiny, which are fantastic, so I wanted to arrange it anyway (plus I got a ton of requests!). The short themes work fine for the game, but as a stand alone arrangement, if I had followed exactly what was written, it wouldn't make much sense. So yes, that's why I rearranged it and added in some of my own parts. I was hoping by starting out with that tower doodly-doo part and then working slowly into the choral section and then building into the militant section and then ending with the doodly doo tower again it would be more cohesive. It made me pretty nervous to do this, I hate to rework something that is originally so well done, but I hope the Destiny fans out there enjoy it anyway :)

Thank you for your comments. That Halo 2 music is fantastic. I started playing Halo with Halo 3, so I wasn't familiar with that Halo piece but it is REALLY good. My hope is to get out a Destiny track once a week, or once every other week, and work in other video game arrangements in between. I get a lot of request for Halo so I'm sure those will make it into the mix.

Thank you again for listening. It really means SO much to me to have people listen and appreciate what I'm doing! :) The process is so fun for me and I get a lot of joy out of knowing that others enjoy the finished products!

Another impressive arrangement! You ever consider doing pieces from Bungie's Halo 3 ODST? I would think that especially well suited to your talents on the piano.

Yes, I have definitely had request for the Halo pieces, and I'm sure I'll get around to them as well!! Thank you :)
