Pianist Transcribes Complete Super Mario Bros. Score | GameLife | Wired.com:
Joseph Karam has worked for several months to create a comprehensive transcription of Koji Kondo’s score to the original Super Mario Bros.
Karam was keen to understand how to play Mario themes and sound effects from the 1985 videogame, but could find no definitive score. Nintendo has never published an official version, but dozens of amateurs had created their own transcriptions — none of which replicated the score adequately, according to Karam.
