We have gone through the days of the World Scholar’s Cup Manila Not So Mini Global Round in my previous post. So the experience would not be complete if I don’t talk about the last day of WSC, when we had the Talent Show and most importantly, the Award Ceremony.
In the Talent Show, I performed a piano cover of BTS’ song which is Mikrokosmos. As you may know, before I went to Manila, I already created this cover and upload it on my youtube channel a while ago. So for preparation, I only practiced it more to lessen the chance of mistake.
To give a variation post between my Weekly Reflections, I will share to you three of my piano videos that I haven’t upload yet in this blog. These three piano videos consist of: (1) A cover of BTS’ song: Idol; (2) My favorite classical song: Blumenlied; and (3) A cover collaboration with Mamski using the song: Melati Suci. I hope you enjoy all of it!
This is actually one of my piano cover that I already made almost a month ago. In this cover, I mashed up BTS and Justin Bieber songs: Spring Day and Nothing Like Us. I chose this two song because they both have similar meaning, about someone that really miss their important best friend. So, I hope you enjoy this cover!
In order to celebrate the BTS 5th Anniversary, I made another BTS’ song cover. But I can’t tell you yet what the song is because I will upload it at June 13th. This song is the main song of BTS’ new album, Love Yourself: Tear,that became the number one song on Billboard top 200 about a week ago. That’s why I decided to cover this song and make it as a gift for their 5th Anniversary.
I actually got the idea to cover BTS’ song from about 3 weeks ago, and my previous idea is covering 6 BTS’ songs (from 2013- 2018) and then uploading one song every day from six days before BTS Anniversary date. But when I tought about it again, I immediately canceled the idea because I don’t think I can cover and record it in a short period of time and also seeing that I have to go to my grandma’s house soon for Idul Fitri.
After I left that first idea, I tought that I will make a medley from a few songs that represent BTS’ albums from 2013-2018. But again I realized that I already made a medley from few of BTS songs not long ago so I don’t want to make it again.
So, rather than making a big project, I only made this special cover that took almost a week to make. And beside the cover project, I also gonna post something on this blog about BTS on June 13th aswell. So, just wait for it!
This was the second time I made songs medley. The first one I made last year from Naura’s two songs, Lukisan Indonesia and Selimut. And this time, I made medley from eight BTS songs. I made this because I was inspired by my friend that also can play piano. On her instagram, she made K-Pop song mashup. So, I tried to search some of BTS’s songs that I like and made it into a medley.
The songs that I choose consist of:
Let Go (FACE YOURSELF ALBUM)
Spring Day (YOU NEVER WALK ALONE ALBUM)
Blood, Sweat, and Tears (WINGS ALBUM)
DNA (LOVE YOURSELF ALBUM)
Go Go (LOVE YOURSELF ALBUM)
Mic Drop (LOVE YOURSELF ALBUM)
Save Me (YOUNG FOREVER ALBUM)
I Need U (YOUNG FOREVER ALBUM)
Before I made the cover, first I categorized the songs according to the music beat and the chord of the melody. I really used my feeling to do this (feel the beat, feel the melody, and find the right chord). The two songs at the beginning (Let Go and Spring Day) have a calm tempo and played on E major. While the rest of the song have relatively upbeat tempo and played on C# minor. In each song, I try to made the left hand accompaniment differently. So when people listen to the medley, they won’t feel bored.
And… this is it! The medley that I made, I hope you like it!
Before I end this post, if you also want to see my friend’s cover, her instagram username is @_naylafza_ . Besides the K-Pop song mashup, she also covered a lot of other song. So check it out!
