Raven’s Jig – Gymnopedie No. 1 (off-vocal)

You all know this one – probably. It is best known when played with a piano, of course, but this timeless melody is one of the most famous in French music. In our arrange, we decided to play this sweet Gymnopedie with an airy keyboard, to make the melody even softer and lighter, like the …

Raven’s Jig – Be of Tranquil Cheer (on-vocal)

Not so long ago, we’ve released this song as an off-vocal track. Now, we have written lyrics for it and recorded the vocals. This soft, bossa-nova-like arrangement of Rin Kaenbyou’s stage theme, from Touhou 11 – Subterranean Animism, is the first piece of what would eventually become Enfants atomiques, a Raven’s Jig EP dedicated to …

Raven’s Jig – Be of Tranquil Cheer (off-vocal)

This soft, bossa-nova-like arrangement of Rin Kaenbyou’s stage theme, from Touhou 11 – Subterranean Animism, is the first piece of what would eventually become Enfants atomiques, a Raven’s Jig EP dedicated to a strange Touhou cat and a strange Touhou bird. This was played with very peaceful thoughts in mind, blue skies and soft grassy …

Raven’s Jig – Unicorns (Solitude by the Window)

You might recognize the melody for this one. A long time ago, we played it as a French song that kept its own name, “Solitude by the Window” – originally from 2001 anime Noir.  Just like our French version of Solitude by the Window, this song is about personal aspects of Agathe’s life… But we …

Raven’s Jig – Cantina Band

This song, released in-between the 2014 and 2015 Star Wars movies, was played by Onne, in his own words, for his personal fun. Actually Agathe has had to write comedic lyrics to it since forever (get to it, Agathe). In the meantime, we hope you can enjoy our fun-packed, drum-and-brass-rich rendition of this timeless classic …

Raven’s Jig – Gnossienne no. 1 “Lent”

To each their own, but most will agree that French composers between the late 19th century and the early 20th century produced real highlights in terms of piano music. Case in point: Erik Satie, who tackled such a large varieties of atmosphere and musical colors in his uniquely creative music. Here with Gnossienne no.1, we …

Raven’s Jig – Teddy Bear

So a little fun story; Onne originally wanted to arrange a song called “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” from Henry Hall, but after realizing that he had very little to add to this song, he searched for a new song to arrange. Because Onne often seriously lacks creativity, we ended up with a song with an incredibly …
