Game of Thrones Theme On Eigenharp Alpha

Sunday Synth Jam: This video, via reader Geert Bevin, captures his looping arrangement of the Game Of Thrones theme on Eigenharp Alpha.

Here’s what he’s got to say about the performance:

Here’s a cover of the theme from ‘Game of Thrones’ that I’ve been working on and even though it’s not perfect yet, I thought it’s good enough to show some of natively modeled sounds of the Eigenharp.

The cello and the violin you’re hearing are the built into EigenD and tweaked a bit in terms of frequency and convolution to my liking. The rest are samples, ‘Epic Toms’ and ‘Requiem Pro’ from 8DIO, I’m also using Mobius for audio looping and triggering it both from a MIDI foot pedal and the Eigenharp.

All sounds were played live and recorded independently on separate tracks, then mixed afterwards.

  1. Totally agree, a couple of those were not intended, hence why I said the performance wasn’t perfect. I could have rehearsed for a few more months but I felt is was good enough as a demo of this style of playing on the Eigenharp (ie. cello/violin and bowing with the strip controller). I’ve had quite a few people inquiring about playing on the Eigenharp like this, but it’s not my personal favourite, so I’d rather move on and work on my own music again 🙂

  2. I’m a big fan of the show, but for some reason the theme song really irks me. Just sounds cliche or something. I realize I stand alone on this.
