Videogame Music Album to Help Fight Multiple Sclerosis
07.05.07 - 2:23 PM

Videogame music fans have a lot of reasons to buy the new piano arranged album called GAME by Michael Gluck. First of all, it's an American-made arranged videogame album which isn't all too common in the first place, but it's also relatively cheap at $9.99 and 20% of the profits are donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Michael Gluck, aka "Piano Squall", has been playing and arranging videogame and anime music on the piano since he was a child. 4 years ago, he started giving concerts at various Anime and videogame conventions around the country. During this time, he was able to raise money for many different causes but none more important to him than multiple sclerosis as he watched his grandmother suffer from the disease in the last 10 years of her life.

For his debut album called GAME (short for Game & Anime Music Emotion), Michael Gluck is going to donate 20% of the profits to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and has partnered with EA who will also match his donation for the cause.

The album contains 19 tracks performed on the piano and includes many famous pieces of music such as a medley of all Final Fantasy battle themes, as well as songs from RPGs like Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, as well as non-RPGs like Super Mario World, Mega Man II and animes such as Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop.

For those worried about licensing issues, it's important to note that Gluck has stated he has paid all the licensing fees to the original authors in order to sell this remixed album and that this album is perfectly legal.

To order the CD, see the full track list, listen to samples of the music and see videos of Gluck performing at conventions, check out his website at www.pianosquall.com.
