Played on the church organ in one of the churches in my hometown.
This is a live recording, so there are a few mistakes in it, sorry.

Sorry for the bad quality, but since I was late, I had nothing decent to record it.

It is indeed quite awesome. It does seem like a quite plain arrangement though.

The chosen place and instrument to record the song make it more special in my opinion =) Sonic is always present in music competitions and it is great to see another performance. Congratz.

Here's a small bonus: The scores I used to play as pdf.
The arrangements are quite plain indeed, but well, I had to play one keyboard with one hand each and another one with my feet. (2 manuals + 1 pedalboard)

Trivia:
- The ending page is actually the second of two pages.
- I also have a sheet with Jungle Zone, but the recording (Jungle Zone single) had a few mistakes in it.
- The transition between Bridge Zone and Ending took a bit too long, because I changed a few settings and didn't manage to do it in time. (I did it in time in other recordings, but they had more mistakes.)

Very nicely done! Makes me wish I could just sit down at the piano and play my own arrangements from start to finish like that.
Thanks for sharing the scores!

I finally remembered to properly record my organ arrangements. This time with decent recording hardware.

Initially I planned to submit a recording of Bridge Zone + Jungle Zone, but I didn't manage to play Jungle well enough in time. I also made a full Ending song - which I had to shorten due to a pretty difficult part in the middle.

Anyway, there are MP3s of the original and intended arrangements:
Bridge + Jungle (FLAC)
Ending (FLAC)
They are still not 100% perfect, but I think I did well enough.

You can also downlaod the full score:
There are the original files (.nwc* + PDF) and scanned PDFs with annotations.

* for NoteWorthy Composer 1.70
