About me 自己紹介

Sperion ≧▽≦


Feel free to email me in English, Chinese or Japanese; I will try to reply in that language if possible.

In the last few years, I have had a great interest in and have done quite a bit of music transcription and arrangement of Japanese popular songs, J-Drama, Anime and Game soundtracks, mainly for piano solo and piano accompaniment, as a hobby. By sharing on this website the music scores I produced, I hope to raise others' interest in my favourite music, and that my scores may be enjoyed by others.






Music transcription/arrangement experience/milestone (and a bit of related website history):
  • 2005/08: Started transcribing J-Pop/Anime music (mainly for piano).
  • 2007: Website launched.
  • 2007/02: Arranged 2 [piano + voice] scores for CUCS Variety Show.
  • Late 2007 onwards: More focused on piano + voice scores rather than piano solo, sometimes also with violins.
  • 2008/09/22: Facebook page created.
  • 2009: Attempted songs with 3-4 vocal parts.
  • 2009/12: Started to transcribe/arrange entire strings scores (with or without a piano part).
  • 2010/01: My first orchestral score transcription - Final Fantasy VI Ending Theme (21 minutes in duration!, but without cymbals and snare drum).
  • 2010/06: Graduated = work schedule will change, and time for transcribing music...?
  • 2010/11: Arranged string orchestra accompaniment for Janne-Minke Nijp's harp composition as a sample for Build-A-Burg Records.
  • 2010/12: Website moved to fc2.com. Set up Google ads to test its feasibility in supporting the website.
  • 2011/09: JS+XML
  • 2011/11: XML+XSLT
  • 2011/11: Arranged a band score [vo+pf+gtr+b.gtr+ds] for Aeth's composition.
  • 2011/11: Learnt some standard drumset notation, started making scores with a drums part or an optional drums part.
  • 2012/02: Finished one of my original goals for transcribing - "存在と無 (sonzai to mu) [pf solo]".
  • 2012/02: Transcribed a few band scores.
  • 2012/03: Transcribed a few (short, simple) orchestral scores. Completed the cymbals and snare drum parts for Final Fantasy VI Ending Theme.
  • 2012/08: Started composing and arranging original songs.
  • 2013/08: Re-written parts of the website layout with more modern html. (No more support from very old browsers, but better support for small displays.)
  • 2013/?: Goodbye?

Music trascription/arrangement has been my biggest hobby for a few years. The main motivation is that I enjoy playing music that I heard and like, and I feel much more comfortable having sheet music to look at. A byproduct is this website, where I hope to share what I have done and help others who also like music.

I take suggestions/requests for transcription, but there are often more than I can handle, so I can only complete some of them. On a related note, it is great to hear from and get to know people around the world who listen to and play the same music.

As music is my hobby, I do not take commissions to transcribe/arrange specific songs. (It would be expensive if I really charge the opportunity cost!) I am extremely grateful for those who donate in support of this website and my work (many thanks to those few - countable on one hand). I originally hoped that donations could help me move onto a more reliable webhost (other than my university society one, which expires when I graduate), but did not seem to work (less than £5 per year?). I am hoping, however, that the tiny amount earned through clicks of the Google ads on the left hand side of the website will be enough to sustain a website in the future (very unreliable so far, unless there is something good for $1 per month).

(Well, I am a graduate student. Does anyone want to employ me? XD)
