This video, via ROLI, features Heen Wai performing a medley of some of the most iconic soundtrack themes of composer Hans Zimmer on the Seaboard RISE 2 MIDI controller.
Wai’s medley features themes from Gladiator, Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Dark Knight, Interstellar, Sherlock Holmes and Dune. The performance does a good job of highlighting some of the unique expressive capabilities of the Seaboard RISE – especially the expressive pitch bends and modulation some of the leads – while also demonstrating that it can be used for standard piano performance.
The track is performed on Seaboard RISE 2, featuring SWAM Cello and Violin leads by Audio Modeling. The backing track was rearranged entirely with Equator2’s Orchestral Ensembles soundpack and Kontakt factory library percussion.
