Polar Bear

The tune this is based on is called "The Bear." Since this piece is played entirely on the white keys of the piano, the bear here is mostly likely a polar bear. You can hear a better recording of the piece here: http://shuffly.net/zoop/ursine-melodies/

Mamizou Futatsuiwa's theme from "Ten Desires" arranged for solo piano. I'm not entirely happy with this and may revisit it sometime.

U.N. Owen's Revenge

Piano arrangements of "U.N. Owen Was Her?" are typically dark and dramatic, with lots of notes crammed into each measure. I thought I'd try something a little different. You can hear a better-sounding recording of this arrangement at my website: http://shuffly.net/zoop/was-it-ulick-norman/

Gensokyo Rag

I took some Touhou themes, turned them upside-down, and made a piano rag out of them. See if you identify the originals. The answers, and a better-sounding recording, are here: http://shuffly.net/zoop/gensokyo-inverted/ .

The tune is from O'Neill's Music of Ireland, and is presumably named for the Irish pirate queen, Gráinne Ní Mháille: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_O%27Malley.

Centennial Festival for Magical Girls

From "Embodiment of Scarlet Devil." A few notes: The run in measure 12 can be simplified or omitted. The bass run in measure 58 can be dropped and the bass from measure 54 substituted. From measure 63 on, the left hand should be much softer than the right. This might not be clear from the MuseScore playback. (There's a better-sounding rendering of this arrangement here: http://shuffly.net/zoop/a-hundred-years-of-mahou-shoujo/ .)
