about

R.C. Pro-Am was one of my favorite games as a kid. Though, I was never quite good at it. (Even still!) The opening title screen theme is one of the more unique NES themes in that it is saturated with triads, something you don’t hear too often due to the 3-voice limitation of the NES soundchip. Composer, David Wise, gets around this by using all three channels to perform the melody and the harmony and then squeezing the bass notes in between the melody notes. The result is a really thick and packed sound.

This little arrangement for the piano ends up being one of the most difficult pieces in my NES repertoire so far. The parallel thirds in the right hand, the quick leaps in the left are what make this so challenging. But it’s a great, rocking soundtrack for the piano. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for listening!

about

88bit Cleveland, Ohio

88bit is the alter ego of Cleveland-based pianist, Rob Kovacs, where he performs note-for-note piano arrangements of classic video game soundtracks from the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Kovacs’ performances are unique in that they recreate early electronic music that was never intended to be performed by humans, stretching the limits of traditional piano playing.
