Chris Huelsbeck - The Piano Collection Vol.II

No joke! Our project is live - be a part of it.

https://www.thepianocollection.com/


[ Show youtube player ]

Which songs are included in The Piano Collection Volume II - The Players Choice?
Watch the video above and find out.


There was a poll?
Yes, in 2020 we collected numerous suggestions via social media, Amiga forums etc. These songs ended up in a final poll. The result is the playlist you can see in the TPCII video - YOUR playlist.


What´s the mega fan option and how does it work?
What´s your connection with Chris Huelsbeck? What is your favourite game he worked on? Did you meet him in the past? Tell us your personal story and share your great memories with the world. Your text and a picture of you will be eternalised in the limited CD booklet. Just select the "TPC II CERTIFICATE" option on the order page! We will get in touch with you to arrange this very special opportunity.


No Score Book?
If you want a TPCII Score Book, please send an email to info@phenix-noir.de. If there is enough interest we will start another campaign. Everyone who has placed an TPC II order now will get a discount on an upcoming score book.

WOW! The limited TPCII USB stick arrived!
I´m impressed by the quality of the piano lacquer finish.
A perfect fit for the included 24bit WAV versions of your selection!

Big grin

Hi ! Wow, really looking forward to it :-) Insta-pre-ordered !

Also, a songbook would be stellar -- cannot wait to play the loading themes medley with my piano of some synth patches !

In terms of interpretation, will it be close to the first album or are you gonna do things differently ?

Your first album was top notch and that's very personal but sometimes I wish there were more "breathing" in the pieces, maybe, you're playing a little too fast or steadily to my taste ? (again : that's amazing work and that's not a criticism, just a personal feeling - maybe I'm more into minimalism)

Did you try to add some very subtle background FX (like nature sounds) or very subtle pads in the background ?

Just another suggestion. Well, I'm very excited, cannot wait, ahah :-)

Additional question : I guess a digital version will be available once the physical items are sold out ?
cheers

Thanks.

It will be close to the first one and I hope that I can find the right balance between faster and slower tracks again.

No background noises, though.
Nice idea, but not for a sequel imo.

Chris will be responsible for the digital stuff after my physical fan releases.

BTW, I've just stumbled upon Grazia Pizzuto's channel, she is another very talented German pianist and recently made piano covers of Amiga classics :

https://www.youtube.com/c/GraziaPizzuto/videos

Maybe you are already in touch with her ?
