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 …

Raven’s Jig – Anything Goes

We released this mellow arrange of a golden oldie early in January 2015, to celebrate the new year. Arranged in a style similar to the one used in Leçon de Français, and reprising the original lyrics, this song was a happy little joke we were happy to partake in, knowing that of course, the older …

Raven’s Jig – Primavera (on-vocal)

“Primavera” translates to “spring”, yet many have attributed feelings of melancholy to this Ludovico Einaudi classic (incidentally the first one we arranged as Raven’s Jig). Spring is supposed to be a time of new life, a time of fresh energy. Indeed, Ludovico’s Primavera sounds exactly like what you’d expect from the beginning of a Hollywood …

Raven’s Jig – You’re so Cool! (on-vocal)

Believe it or not… This is also a Hans Zimmer song. The last one we played to date, and a particular one at that; this is one of the first songs that gave Onne inspiration to play more cheerful songs and experiment in more childlike styles, which would much later lead to the rise of …

Raven’s Jig – Moon River

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of Agathe’s favorite films, and both Raven’s Jig members love Audrey Hepburn’s sheer sense of style and grace – so it only made sense to pay homage to her with this simple, straightforward arrange of Henri Mancini’s Moon River. Of course, it doesn’t beat the original scene with Hepburn stroking …

Raven’s Jig – My Favorite Things

The Sound of Music is basically a mix of hit songs that would all become icons in musical history, and My Favorite Things has been arranged and rearranged to the max. It is actually one of Agathe’s favorite melodies of all times, which brought her to uncontrollable tears from sheer beauty when she was a …

Raven’s Jig – Windmills of Your Mind

After Agathe was moved to tears by Dianne Reeve’s rendition of this song (do check it out if you can), and by the beauty of such fatalistic, realistic, downright sincere lyrics, she pestered Onne so they could arrange it. Onne gave this song a unique twist, minimizing the majestic drums as much as possible and …

Raven’s Jig – You Were There (on-vocal)

If this song from the video game Ico reminds you of FMA’s Bratja, don’t be surprised – they were both composed by Michiru Oshima, whose music we appreciate dearly. This specific song, however, was chosen by hit Utaite Kanipan, as part of the second collaboration we did together. In Better Together, this piece, featuring original English …

Raven’s Jig – Wind Scene (Yearnings of the Wind, 風の憧憬, on-vocal)

This arrange of an iconic and melancholic Chrono Trigger soundtrack is our first collab with hit Utaite Kanipan… And it felt like a dream come true. Onne suggested the collab to the Japanese singer, and Agathe, who had been a big fan of her for a while, was overjoyed to provide lyrics and singing to …
