In my memory, Beethoven's 'Für Elise' (Letter for Elise) is associated with music boxes and children's toys. I remembered being forced to play it in 3rd grade by mother! 20 years later, I renewed the song by changing the key to A major and adding some oriental melodies of my own. What do you think about this version?

I personally like it! Sounds great.

I would raise the frame rate to 60 for the hands and piano though.

I enjoyed it, thanks for sharing! It was different. It's nice to appreciate the contrast between things, besides absolutes.

Doesn't sound Asian at all to me, it sounds more like the Pachelbel canon lol.

Here's a piece of Asian music (if by Asian you mean Chinese rather than Indian etc) to inspire anyone who wants to Asianize Für Elise:



"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."

I don't think many would disagree!

But something doesn't need to be better to be of interest, and to be just fun. I find this both, and I imagine it was like that for the player and (I guess) why this was done.

I like it too. Although - I didn't pick up on an oriental mood. But very nice.

For an asian, chinese type mood ----- it could be sort of like this --- LINK -- which is sort of cliche, as we know there are heaps of patterns that are asian sounding.
