Piano: Philip Glass – Dreaming of Fiji (Truman Show)

26 09 2008

Here goes nothing…

Me on the piano. 😛

Music from my favorite composer: Philip Glass
From my favorite Jim Carrey movie: Truman Show (watch it if you didn’t yet)
Score by Joseph M. Rozell

Was available online on Pianothemes.com
Here’s the perfect version (not crappy like mine) with a movie trailer:

Unfortunately, Pianothemes.com went down.
But thanks to ChuckMcKnight, I could get my hands on the piano sheet. His page has lots of transcriptions… I recommend it!

maximoulin also played it in another YouTube video (his playing is better than mine):

Finally, I know my playing is kinda crappy and filled with mistakes… but it was the best I could do.
I’m no pianist… took lessons some 16 years ago, but nowadays it’s just a hobby.
Hope it isn’t too offensive on other’s ears. XD

Comments, critics, questions, etc… I’m all ears! 😀

[…] far simpler, since I don’t have the skills to make complex adaptations or play, as seen on my previous attempt with another Philip Glass piece also from the Truman Show, Dreaming of Fiji. Anyways, yet another beautiful music from Philip Glass! You know those songs that for some reason […]
