Listen to the Super Mario Theme Played with Ancient Chinese Instrument

Grab It Magazine is reporting about an unknown musician who can create 8-bit Mario Bros. music perfectly with an instrument made thousands of years ago. (3DS, Culture, GameCube, Industry, Nintendo DS, Retro, Super Mario Bros., Wii U)

That's amazing. I can only assume she just worked out to do that since modern sheet music wouldn't really carry across, which means she must be a.) very good and b.) a true gamer

What game should she do next? I'll take California games

Wow, what an awesome rendition. Did anyone else notice how strangely close in tone that sounded to the original?

What a terrible writer. Unknown musician? Gawker profiled her days ago in a much more comprehensive article. An instrument made thousands of years ago? It might have been invented centuries ago, but I doubt hers is that old.

Finally, as common sense dictates (and a little bit of simple research, which is too much for this clever author), the Super Mario sounds were modeled after the unique sounds of this instrument, making it a lot less of an amazing coincedence that the instrument sounds like the video game. It was simply meant to sound that way.

I think you are confusing the blurb the N4G poster did with the actual article through the link.

Very impressive!
