Piano, Video

Studio Recording: “Empire” – Shakira (Piano Cover)

I fell in love with this tune when I heard it for the first time. I’d watched a version of the video on YouTube which has a series of time-lapse shorts brought together with overlaid lyrics that resulted in the song getting stuck in my head. I had to learn how to play this, and ended up playing it over and over again while I sat at the piano figuring it out. Last month, I performed this live at the Singapore Piano Lovers meetup at the URA centre in Chinatown. Tonight, I decided to get it right and complete a recording in my study. This has been shot with a GoPro and recorded on Garage Band on my Mac. It’s not perfect, but having said that, it’s something that I’m happy with given where my skills are.
