"Red Planet Nocturne" (sad piano)

If you play anything in minor on the higher octaves of a piano, it sounds bittersweet. Especially if you’ve been reading Steins;Gate, where they have multiple piano arrangements of the main theme that they use for bittersweet moments.

(audio only)

The original “Red Planet Nocturne” is the theme for the game Offworld Trading Company, a colonization / resource management game. The composer is Christopher Tin, who did my favorite modern orchestral album, Calling All Dawns.
