Respect.
Impressive.
Brilliantly done! What a great effort. A shame of the recording quality. He's always welcome in my studio to do another pass... And always thought Parallax had a big minimal music edge to it. I'm sure Galway also listened to Steven Reich when making it...
Love It!
Very impressive, but a perfect song needs a flawless performance.
Yes, the recording quality is crap, yes, there are a few mistakes here and here, but this is a fantastic piano arrangement and it really shines at that. I especially like the last 3-4 minutes of it, instant classic!
Wow, it is a brilliant performance. I know it is quite some time ago you posted this but... I wish you could record it again in a studio. Take Reyns's offer, if it still stands!

Linus did realy understand this composition. From my point of view Parallax lives - more than other c64 songs - from it's melodical patterns. It reminds me to Mike Oldfields early stuff, like "Hergest Ridge" or famous "Tubular Bells". These songs develop melodical patterns step by step and transform slowly theme into theme. To discover the straight way to the soul of those pieces, it's a good idea of bringing them down to the piano.

Linus' piece even inspired me to do it myself this way
