Want to play your favorite Homestuck songs on the piano? Perhaps you figured out some guitar tabs for a song on the Midnight Crew album? Or do you just want to listen to a familiar song in MIDI format? This is the thread for you.
Here, our talented forumgoers are figuring out and transcribing the music from the nine (and growing) Homestuck albums and putting up the results to share with the MSPAF community. Looking for something in particular? Check the link below to get started.
Tracks are sorted by album. Last updated March 28th, 2013. Broken Link list is here. Bold denotes material provided by the original composer!

As an amateur pianist, I would love to be able to play it myself.
I've been with MSPA since the early days of PS, and I'm stoked to see that Homestuck is experimenting with new things. I thought the initial flash animation looked great, and I think the introduction of music is a great idea.
Props to Kevin for the "Haunting Piano Refrain". It was quite haunting and indicative of all those Final Fantasy/Chrono Trigger/Other random JRPG melodies that stick in your head and bring a tear to your eye when one of the game's main characters dies. *sniffle*
Andrew, I'm also a trained composer with a not-so-secret love for video game music. So if Homestuck needs any other music in the future, I'd love to contribute!
Well, I think you're kind of right DragonXVI, the chords SOUND like the ones you wrote...(oh wait, the G Major should be G dom7) but from a music theory standpoint, I definitely wouldn't call the third chord D# Major. If your working scale is C minor (aeolian), then the scale is:
C D Eb F G Ab Bb C.
So the chords are:
C minor, Bb Major, Eb Major, -
F Minor, Eb Major, Bb Major, G7
C minor, Bb Major, Eb Major, -
F minor, G Major, C minor, -
I mean, it COULD be called D#, but then the key is B# minor (ick!) and the OTHER chord names would also change to go along with it, like:
B# Cx D# E# Fx G# A# B#.
C minor and B# minor do sound the same (TECHNICALLY), but how gross does that look. A key with (edit) 9 sharps.
I'll look into writing out the sheet music tonight in Finale, and I'll post a Pdf or something for anyone interested.
Thanks so much guys, and thanks in advance for taking the effort to pump out the sheet music-- I regret I was never patient enough to study music theory, so sadly, the chords explanation didn't help me much.
Aw, well just imagine it like I said every word with a huge smile. I swear, I'm a pretty cheerful guy.
Haha, yea.... I honestly was kind of surprised to see all that kind of chordal movement with so few nonstandard chords, i.e. with extensions like 9 and on, or any kind of dim. or aug. anything. I need to stop looking at things so technically now that I think about it.
Hey everyone. My apologies for not being as prompt as I'd thought I could be.
I just finished up my final exams and final projects which had been taking up 85% of time since mid-April. I promise I'll have the notation done (or at least the portion of the piece that you've heard so far) by next Friday.
