Revealing The Heart Of 'Hollow Knight's' Music With Solo Piano

hollow_knight_art.png

Christopher Larkin's score for Hollow Knight is one of the most beloved soundtracks in recent games. I talked with arranger David Peacock and pianist Augustine Mayuga Gonzales about their project to adapt Chris' haunting music for solo piano.

David says he appreciates Christopher's involvement in developing the arrangements. He says Chris advised him to use the lore of the game as inpiration for his arrangements.

Augustine says he loved playing David's arrangements because they were challenging, but also allowed him to use his background as a classical pianist.
