Mystic Dream ~ Snow or Cherry Petal - Touhou Arrange

Grand Illusions 30
06/09/2017 23:17

Transcribed onto a 30-note music-box, and transposed such that F becomes D, C becomes A, etc.. Individual parts of the song each have their pitch raised/lowered in octaves variously to fit, in addition to a few notes that are too high pitch after this change (e.g. C♯6/D♭6 lowered to C♯5/D♭5, G2 raised to G3, etc.). Technically more of an arrangement, despite quite following the original, since it's intended to end and not loop at the end, among other things.

* At the end, there's a ritardando. If playing with a physical music-box, slow the piece down gradually until at half tempo at the end (starts at the second out of the three 4-eight-notes-then-rest chain at the end).

I was about to discard to this version and re-do it by transposing it to another key. In the end, I instead discarded that version and went along with this one. I accidentally uploaded/published that other one in an unfinished state (I meant to save it), but I quickly deleted it soon after.

Hole punch paper strips Export

Yay! It looks like this melody can be played offline on a 30 note paper strip music box!

All you need to do is:

  1. Get a 30 note DIY Music Box Kit from our online store page if you don't have one
  2. Export the melody to PDF with paper strips, print it out and cut with scissors. Make sure to use the right paper size and set you printer scale to 100%, otherwise the size won't match. It's better when paper strips are thick, so if you are going to use thin office paper, we recommend you to glue two or three layers together. Another option is to laminate paper strips with a transparent duct tape
  3. Punch holes with a tool from the music box kit
  4. Enjoy your favorite melody playing on a real music box!
