The KEY Anthology Saxophone Collection

My secret project is not so secret anymore!

I have been hard at work, scrounging for MIDIs, sampling and editing them meticulously, transcribing, recording, editing (that’s audio, images, and even a little bit of video), and just about anything else you can think of to put together the project shown in the below video. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Coming January 1, 2015, you will be able to listen to and download a full MP3 version of The KEY Anthology Saxophone Collection by yours truly here on my YouTube channel and my blogs, Japesland.Wordpress.com and JapeslandSheets.Wordpress.com.

The album includes 17 tracks encoded as MP3s at 192kbps spanning 6 of Key’s most famous visual novels (Kanon, Air, Clannad, Planetarian, Little Busters!, and Rewrite). It will also include sheet music and album art, along with some other potential goodies (still working this out!).

Sheet Music/YouTube Roundup – Update

Well the holidays have finally passed, and with it the holiday break that I got from my university. In just a few days I will be heading back to school, which means I will not have my saxophone with me for a few months. Consequently, I will not be able to upload any new YouTube covers (most likely) until summer, when I am back home with my saxophone and my studio setup again. This does NOT mean that I will not be uploading new sheet music, but my transcriptions are likely to slow down as well (though be sure to stay posted with the blog just in case!).

Knowing that this would happen, I tried to pump out as many covers as I could over break, so I decided to bring them all together in one post as a review of the past month or so! So, below you will see all of the YouTube covers I worked on and uploaded. As always, the sheet music for each of these is provided on the sheet music page.

More sheet music and a YouTube update!

I have two more sheets for you saxophone players out there! The Sheet Music page has already been updated with these, as well as all of my past transcriptions.

Hakkin Disco – From Nisemonogatari

Undine – From Aria: The Animation

Now, as far as YouTube goes, I have not abandoned my channel! I currently have four videos in the works (representing the four sheets I recently uploaded). I am experimenting with a new video format, as I no longer have a camera, so I hope you like what I have come up with!

Big Changes for Japesland

Just as the title implies, I am writing today in order to announce some major changes to the blog! I’ll just jump right into it:

Japesland (the blog) is now solely being used for saxophone sheet music. Although I have not had the time to work on arrangements due to school work, during breaks (mainly summer) I will continue my arrangements and posts for those interested.

With that said, my theology/religion-related posts are going to continue, but in a different capacity because I am now an official columnist for Beneath the Tangles! If you are interested, my first official piece went up today, which you can read here.

In any case, I’m not dead! (And I hope to remain undead for a while…)
