Rhythm Encounter 114 – Incomparettable: Piano Covers with Kara Comparetto

Rhythm Encounter 114 - Kara Comparetto

Have you ever wanted an inside look at what it’s like to write covers from classics like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI, perform, and run a stream/YouTube channel? Then this episode is for you. It’s another special interview episode here on Rhythm Encounter, and we’re fortunate to be joined by talented pianist, streamer, and arranger Kara Comparetto! She joined us to discuss her work and performance-driven RPG music in general, from costume-making to learning the subtle differences in playing piano, pipe organ, and harpsichord (including recording yourself doing different parts of the same song to fit them together beautifully). And, of course, we have some of her tracks to listen to and discuss!

Featuring: Hilary Andreff, Patrick Gann, with special guest Kara Comparetto; Edited by Jono Logan
